A Weekend in the City

This Saturday and Sunday, August 2nd and 3rd, were so beautiful in New York City as the weather was “Fall like” and a nice break from the typical “dog days of August”.  I was able to take advantage of the cooler weather and spent the weekend walking for miles and miles throughout the City, including through Central Park and the Boat House, the 79th Street Boat Basin on the Hudson River, throughout the new Riverside Park along the Hudson River, SoHo, the West Village, and so many other areas.
New York City is filled with so many micro-neighborhoods each with its own unique character and it is such a treat to explore them!

The street furniture that has been designed for the Riverside Park along the Hudson River is so well done, such as this bench with incorporates lighting in the canopy that provides shade.
