Reunited with New York

Can’t describe what it’s like being back in New York. It feels like home. It’s hot, but not as muggy as it was last year. We’re staying with Cousin Grant at his new apartment in Tribeca (all controlled by iPads – cool). We actually feel quite a bit more comfortable here than in San Francisco – probably because of the familiarity and not so many homeless people. It is a strange time being here over the weekend of memorials in remembrance of the 9/11 attacks 10 years ago on Sunday. There’s an NYPD checkpoint just near the apartment watching the nearby entrance to the Holland Tunnel as they manage incoming threats of car bombs. It’s kind of surreal.

We’re really close to RBC for our morning coffee but couldn’t resist the temptation of Chelsea Market and Ninth Street Espresso for our first visit to an old stomping ground this morning.

We spent most of the time wandering around Williamsburg – visited the New York chapter of Blue Bottle Coffee and wandered around the shops before it got too hot.

This afternoon we hung out on the High Line until some sultry but harried interns in ridiculous heels being put to work on a Tommy Hilfiger shoot came and took our chairs away to be part of their production.
