Seeing the Bright Lights, Big City

Just a quick post to say Happy Memorial Day, and share a couple of pics.

We’re wrapping ourselves in the sounds, sights and smells of our favorite city, walking our feet sore, and loving every minute.

We’re staying in the West Village again. Here we can find everything we need/want and more, like a rest in a scenic little park.

It’s about 70 degrees today, perfect for skinnies and a long-sleeve top.

Our “big trip” of the day was to Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Underpass), These are vibrant Brooklyn ‘hoods we’ve been considering as alternatives to Manhattan. We loved it there – spectacular views down by the waterfront – but still feel most at home here in the Village.

Here you are, really Down Under the Manhattan Bridge!

Hope your day was fab,

    It’s always such a joy to read articles created by actual professionals.

    I am fed up with that no-name, ghostwritten articles.
    That is the reason it was so good to look at a persuasive piece.
    I visit the writer has floor knowledge it the
    subject as well as some practical expertise. Such kind of information is more beneficial than copypasted blog articles thoughts.
