new york city, ny - january 2-6

i lived in new york city for almost 10 years, first in the east village of manhattan as an NYU student and then in brooklyn as the owner of sandwich, the pit bull. we decided to stay in the east village, because my memories of the east village include restaurants, bars, and interesting sights, and my memories of brooklyn include my dog's preferred places to poop. it was a close call, lots of debate back and forth.

the best part of this trip was buying an "i heart ny" t-shirt that will never leave my body and which i am trying to convince alex is appropriate bridal attire for our wedding day.

no, of course, the best part of this trip was seeing my friends and old apartments and haunts and streets and neighborhoods i used to know like the back of my hand. this is the one city i felt truly at home in, and will always carry around with me in my heart. it was good to be home.

we stayed in an apartment found through airbnb -- meaning we stayed in a local's apartment while she was out of town. it was smack dab in the middle of the east village, and had a gorgeous (and humongous) balcony out back.
