Community Gardens
April 21, 2016
Tucked into vacant lots and unused corners of the city, New York's Community Gardens can feel like a real discovery when you happen upon them. Two months ago we exited the subway at 2nd Avenue on our way to brunch and came face-to-face with the Liz Christy Community Garden. How I've missed it all these ...
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park
April 4, 2016
The track surrounding the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park is an amazing place to break a sweat and take in spectacular views of the city.  For me, it's my best bet for squeezing in a workout, as the track is only 1.58 miles, making one or two laps achievable for the unbuff.  Even in the ...
Caramel Baby & Child
January 26, 2016
Left to her own devices, my toddler would leave the apartment looking like Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan.

My childhood friend -- who fled NYC long ago to live in Paris -- sends us the cutest, chicest outfits every year for the girls' birthday. I am always excited when the package arrives but always find myself equally bummed out that I can never find the brand here! Well last week I learned that ...
Central Park Zoo
January 19, 2010
The Central Park Zoo is a treat for young kids – especially the separate children’s zoo that has a ton of things to climb around in, an adorable petting zoo, and a HUGE indoor rainforest filled with all kinds of wildlife walking around. While not as expansive as the Bronx Zoo (the real deal zoo ...
Horse & Buggy ride
September 15, 2009
Oh how I love playing tourist sometimes! And one of my favorite spots to visit is perhaps the crossroads of it all -- the corner of 59th and 5th Avenue. Tiffany’s, The Plaza Hotel, FAO Schwartz, Bergdorf, Barneys, and the entrance to Central Park -- to name a few of the highlights. And I ask ...
