If you’re looking for ways to spend a morning in the city, consider visiting the Elizabeth Street Garden tucked in Nolita. It is the perfect oasis between shopping and brunching. Bring a blanket and spend an hour reading (conveniently located near McNally Johnson, if you’re empty handed) underneath a trees or quickly stroll through the .46 acres of green space if you’re pressed for time.
New York City parks and gardens are magical in the summer, but it’s little ones like these that make turning a corner on a crowded neighborhood incredibly rewarding.
The garden offers various events throughout the week and weekend, which you can read about here. Unfortunately, housing construction plans are a threat, but by signing this letter and spreading the news you can make a difference.
What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday morning? Any favorite parks? Let me know.
Now get out there! It’s summer.

New York is so lovely this time of year! My mom came for a quick visit earlier this month and we crossed the Central Park Rowboats off our NYC bucket list. Sometimes I think the rowers on the pond look miserable out there, but we had a blast. The boats are available until November… so hurry to it if you’re into that.

Here are some photos of what I consider to be an almost perfect two days in the city. Complete with a baseball game! (Caution: Portraits of a bromance at Citi Field follow.) Weekends in NYC are good for hot dogs and markets and museums and shopping. Alla that.

I moved to the city everyone talks about! It feels amazing and big and bold and right. My best friend and boyfriend happened to be here the weekend of settling. (Come back, please!) So taking everything in was somehow better. The metro. The park. The hoards of people. The infamous energy. It’s all here.
Some photos of the first week here. The last one of July. The summer going.
Bloggers, readers, friends! Please give me your recommendations. I have a lot to see and eat and drink. I’m here to stay.
P.S. Tell me Thi and Ashley aren’t the best? He takes really beautiful photos of her (not hard to do) and others in the city, which you can check out here.
