Things I’ve loved about New York this week

A late Sunday night edition of ‘Things I’ve loved about New York this week’! 1 :: Of course, there was… Thanksgiving! Yes, I was in the office but thankfully I made it to Ryan’s brother’s house without missing a single bite of deliciousness.

10 places I’m thankful for in New York

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re enjoying a calorific dinner with loved ones – or if you’re in the UK, I hope you’re enjoying your Thursday. Sadly, I’m in the office until 5pm.

…walked over the world’s longest footbridge

New York has its iconic bridges (I’ve hopped over the Brooklyn Bridge, skipped over the Manhattan Bridge and taken my sweet ass time looking at art on the Williamsburg Bridge) but they were mere (meer?) preparation for this guy: This is ‘Walkway Over The Hudson’ – the longest elevated footbridge in the world. And it’s right here in …

…visited Minnewaska State Park in time to see the leaves

The clocks have changed, the mercury has plunged and I’m back on the hot coffees. I think we’re nearing winter.
