Memorial Day

While the majority of New Yorkers chose to escape the City for Memorial Day weekend in favour of the beaches of the Hamptons, I love nothing more than staying here.

I mean what's not to love about a long weekend where you can:

Score a table outside for 6 people on a Saturday night without a reservation at Flor Del Sol in Tribeca.

Share a bottle of Rose at A.O.C over brunch without looking like an alcoholic. And then sip even more Rose while sitting in a paddling pool on my friend JC's private roofdeck in the heart of the West Village.

 And let's not forget that this is the first weekend of the year where having a BBQ is in fact mandatory. Mine was at LJ's in Brooklyn and involved us grilling meat right in the street!

When I was in NY last year I remember that the streets were quite empty on the memorial day and I had an extra day free from school:) Just found your blog, I like it.

Why did you move to New York? :D

Thank you so much - I'm really glad you like my blog.

I came here for work - I was promoted to a new role and relocated to my company's head offices in New York 3 years ago.
