We are miserable in NYC

You know I love this city, but as I have posted before, it can be awful in the rain.

Weekend Update

I approached this weekend with little planned – in a good way! Business travel Monday and Tuesday had left me feeling a bit tired.

Dinner on Friday with my friend Julie popped up as an option. We had a drink at Jane and then dinner at The Dutch. Very fun catching up.

“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.

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’ll deal with the pollen just fine once my favorite Linden trees bloom.
