A Tuesday in NYC

Sometimes all it takes is a reminder that New York City is only a 2.5 hour bus ride away from where I live, (and a freed up Tuesday) to nicely break up my upstate routine and help me to get inspired. While there's always something productive I could be doing in Albany, I wanted to take some time to get out of town and pay a long overdue visit to everyone's favorite city. Whenever I come down now, it's a marathon of how many friends I can link with, and how much stuff I can do (usually in a 24hour period). It makes me wonder how much I'd get done if I actually moved to the city.

This trip involved checking out the Death Becomes Her exhibit at the Met, which featured the fashion of women in mourning in the late 1800/early 1900's, sandwiches in Bushwick, drinks with an old friend, stopping by my friends place before their weekly radio show on SUB.FM and a visit to Webster Hall to check out Jesse Boykins III play a live set with his funky hip hop fusion band. Not bad for a random, spontaneous Tuesday.
