summer in the city

Apologies for my unannounced absence from the blogosphere, I was busy hanging out in nyc!  When a few of my lovely friends from RISD invited me to come up and visit for a few days, I couldn’t say no.

We actually ended up spending a fair amount of time in Brooklyn, which was fine with me.  I’ve always wanted to explore the up-and-coming artsy neighborhood of Williamsburg.  With a pizza dinner out, (check out Juliana’s– my friend’s older brother did all of their signage! ….oh and their pizza is delicious), a (nonnegotiable) stop at Catbird for some new ring a ding dings, a spin around the infamous Beacon’s Closet thrift store where hipsters of all spectacle-shape and and crop-top color flock like moths to a flame, a visit to The Bedford to nosh on a kale-heavy lunch, a walk around The Bedford Cheese Shop, and a few minutes of ogling the cluttered constellation-like lights of Manhattan from across the East River, we covered a lot of bases.

Back in the city, there were fancy craft beers to drink at Proletariat, and fun shopping to be done around Soho (check out Artizia).  It’s been a while since I’ve seen the summer in nyc.  Refreshing, in a sweaty, too-many-people, two-days-is-more-than-enough, kind of way.
