New York-ing Around

SO. School is out!

My children have never attended any sort of formal summer day camp, as I have been home with them for the most part. This year, I had no idea that I’d still be working this summer. Well, it wasn’t a solid idea. Now that I will be busy with work a few days out of the week, I feel doubly responsible for making the rest of the days fun packed. Today, I lugged home approximately 100 lbs of books from 3 summer reading lists and even managed to choose something that the big girl liked.

And yesterday was the kind of day I hope to enjoy for the rest of the summer.

First, the kids and I headed to The Museum of the City of New York.


We were there to check out the Stephen Burrows exhibit (for my next DOC/event review for Handmaker’s Factory). In short, it was beautiful. For the long, stay tuned.


After that, we hurried home because it looked like rain. We skipped our Central Park dining a la carte plans somewhat reluctantly. But, it was fortuitous as I had totally forgotten that I registered for the Brooklyn Eats event.


We grubbed on tons of delicious samples and I collected business contact info for this year’s holiday market vendor recruiting.

I was dead sluggish at work, today. But it was worth it!

  1. I’ve actually never been to the Museum of the City of New York, even though I’ve lived here for 10+ years! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on the Stephen Burrows exhibit. It looks like something I would enjoy – maybe I’ll be inspired to check it out finally!
