This post made me
say growl YESSSSS.
For example, #12.
It’s not just the waiting. It’s the heat (often) and the lack of cell service or wifi (always). The lack of available seating (sometimes) and the not-afraid of humans rats, particularly at First Avenue (far too often).
I would add:
24. Subway escalators that are broken more often than functioning. Especially at Grand Central. You’re walking up to them thinking “why so slow, people?” only to get to the escalator and realize it’s not moving and you just have shiny, uneven steps instead.
25. Subway elevators that, when they exist, always smell bad and register temps in the 90-100 degree range.
26. Subway stations without escalators OR elevators such as Bedford’s L station. That way I feel like a jerk for not helping someone traveling solo with a baby stroller. But do you remember how clumsy I am?
27. Apartments with nasty kitchens including those old timey stoves/ovens.
28. Restaurant menus littering my apartment building hallways.
New Yorkers, what drives you mad about our mostly-awesome city?
Fun and exciting!
It’s Fashion Week here in NYC. Thanks to a friend, I was invited to Tracy Reese’s show. We got a peek at the gorgeous Spring collection.
I also had good meals with friends including D.O.C. here and Williamsburg and Woodwork in Prospect Heights I had snack bacon with @amandarykoff, @katiestars and @norunsupport. Before that, though, I accidentally walked into the unmarked Weather Up first–oops!
How was your weekend?
“People in New York City suffer from allergies? REALLY?”
Yes, I’m here to tell you that we do. And this op-ed tells you why we may actually suffer more than in other cities.
Although non-New Yorkers might think of NYC as the Concrete Jungle, plenty of trees, grasses and other pollen producers do grow here – and well!
One source estimates that New York City has more than 5 million trees. We’re lucky to have such a green city, but yes, we sneeze a lot in season.

I love cheese. Wouldn’t it be fun to know more about it? I think so.
In my opinion, the funkier the cheese, the better. I’m not sure there’s a cheese I wouldn’t try.
Here in the New York metropolitan area, there are cheese making classes. But I think I just want to eat it!
These are a few of the options I’m considering:
Update: I did it! Thanks to Mollytopia, I took a great class at Murray’s.
