I’m Standing On Canal …

Every time I’m in New York I’m convinced that the reason so many writers gravitate toward the city is for all the people watching. Space is a premium commodity and you find yourself sharing a table at a coffee shop, being seated inches from other diners at a restaurant and standing centimeters from fellow passengers on the subway. You can’t help but hear what that couple on their first date is talking about, or notice what the distinguished older gentleman in reading on the train. It’s character development gold. Which is why my favorite thing to do in the city is just be in the city. Grab coffee and watch people walk by, wander through parks and city streets and just listen.

Here are a few of the things I’ve seen over the last few days (also some things I’ve eaten and people I’ve hung out with):

    • Thanks so much for hosting to blog hop! Such a great idea!

      I did have a wonderful time in NYC. Between being a tourist and then heading to the conference, I’m think I’m still recovering – but totally worth it!

  1. This was a fun post, I’m glad I found you through the blog hop! I felt like I stepped into NY for a minute, and I totally love the vibe of being a writer there. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Melissa! I do think I would enjoy being a writer in NYC, at least for a little while.

    • It was great! A lot of the pictures are from the Highline (the the beer garden at the Standard Hotel, near it). So obviously, that would be a top recommendation of mine if you decide to pay NYC another visit.

    • That was a snickerdoodle and cinnamon ice cream sandwich- called the Cinnamax, found on the Highline. Delicious!
