New York City (Fall, 2015)

I always miss New York. For a couple years, my ex and I lived in a tiny apartment in the East Village. It was a fantastic neighborhood, and a really cool little 1-bedroom. I wish I could've kept it. Since then, I've continued to work regularly with companies based in Manhattan. I try to head back as often as I can to visit those clients face-to-face, and to reconnect with one of the greatest cities on Earth.

I usually stay in an Airbnb, but for this particular trip I checked into the NoMo SoHo. It's a really unique and comfortable space-- I would definitely recommend it.

I couldn't have picked a better time to visit. The foliage was violently orange, and the High Line path wasn't too packed. I visited the new Whitney, the Met, saw some small shows, visited my friends at One Kings Lane, and dined at some of my favorite spots (including The Butcher's Daughter in Nolita). I also spent some time with a friend in Irvington, one of the cutest towns ever. It was the perfect trip.

'Til next time, NY! (Click on the image below to view the gallery in IG.)
