Beautiful Day in NYC

On Sunday we spent the most exciting and joyful day in Manhattan- more specifically on the west side along the Hudson river, my old "stomping grounds." For ten years I worked in a high school located on w19th and 9th Ave...Not always as glamorous as it is now, The Meatpacking District is known for its high-end designer boutiques, trendy restaurants, bars, and hotels... I still appreciate its urban beauty, both old and new.
The High Line park is so pretty and surreal. Have you heard about it yet? You can read more about it here. How cool is a park on top of old elevated train tracks? Very.

Check out this restaurant underneath the tracks? Tres chic, no?
I see myself there someday sharing a drink with a new love...


Creepy, beautiful wall on W22 St.
Me and my girl took lots of portraits together using this as a backdrop.


Still love my graffiti. Love the drip on this one.




We have been surrounded by so much love and support from family and friends the past few weeks. It has been wonderful. I feel truly blessed.
And...
as we were leaving, this jumped out at me.
So hopeful and appropriate.

That is a wonderfully creepy wall! Hope you are well. Any chance you will be in Manhattan on Sunday?? I will be at the Westbeth Community Center for a workshop. We do get a lunch break, but I don't know when!! Also Nov 7, i think, the Stampsmith is having a show in Long Island in case you are interested in Rubber! xoSusan
