New York is For Lovers

Warm weather is everywhere this week, and though this summer certainly wasn’t the hottest in recent memory, it did have some pretty amazing days. Like the one spent lazily strolling around the Lower East Side on a Sunday. This is one of my favorite past times and usually involve some strolling, probably one of the only times either of us can ever be seen strolling, and stopping for brunch. Anyone that knows me or reads Style Island knows that I love my little island of Manhattan. Being born here comes with a sort of inherent hustle, but on a warm, city day, exploring art behind every corner, there’s nothing to worry about it. Life is easy like Sunday morning.

And sometimes, the best parts of New York City aren’t in a museum, or behind glass, they’re right in front of you, tangible, and everywhere you look. Perfect example; these reconstructed pieces of art illustrating a Debbie Harry tribute in the form of some amazing graffiti. I was immediately taken, not just by what I saw, but by the fact that the island really does have the ability to surprise you behind every corner. And that is my kind of town.

  • Aww, you made me miss NYC so much. I was born and raised there too and my fave was walking down the Village or SoHo and/or cruising through Central park and taking pictures. I miss the pizza and the Italian bakeries. Oh man, I miss all the food. : ) I miss it, but now that I have found your blog I am going to savor ever post you write about NYC. I found your awesome blog on Facebook Mommies G+. You have a new follower. Have a great weekend.
