My birthday lands on the autumnal equinox. And not only does it make a hell of a confusion when it comes to my zodiac (virgo & libra)... But it always reminds me that the days will get shorter and cooler and the leaves will change.
One of the biggest parts of New York I miss is the transitioning seasons and running/jogging along the Jackie O. Reservoir each day and noticing the leaves slowing transforming in color.
Anyway, my absence on the blog is due to a new job in LA that I've been constantly busy with, and this marks a solid month and half since my departure from NY. So, to utilize my stored photos from the last bits and pieces of New York, I'm going to spread them out for the remainder of this month and the first week of October as a slow and painful farewell to summer and NY, and a bittersweet hello to LA and autumn. Even though it's still about an average of 90 degrees in LA when it's technically fall, it's nice to see my favorite and oh so familiar and comfortable backdrops of New York while I do these posts. I got to play tourist for the last month I lived in New York and took my time taking in different parts of the city.
In this photo set: the flatiron building and district where I am VERY familiar with. I commuted everyday and worked about 2 blocks away from the famous architectural landmark. It never got old no matter how exhausted I was from work. Much of my time here was spent at Eataly (a bit religiously) with lemon sorbets in the summer and fig sorbets and coffee gelato in the fall sitting in Madison Sq. Park no matter what the weather said it was going to be. I walked down to Washington Sq. and down to the West Village to my favorite Swedish destination: SOCKERBIT. All time favs: raspberry hard candies and Mick Jagger lips. I took an extra large bag to take to the west coast with me...
Here I am throughout wearing the usual summer uniform of white shorts, muscle tank and silk neckerchief. Hair slick back in a full pony tail and minimalist sandals.
