My NYC 30 before 30

I’m back – and it’s a new year! I welcomed in 2015 by glugging a glass of bubbly beneath fireworks in Florida. I have lots of non-New York related photos (like the ones I posted to my Instagram over the past week) to share with you, but before then I thought I’d pop up and wish you a happy …

We’ve had snow and summer all in the same week, but rumor has it that the sun is going to make an appearance again this weekend. Just in case it does, we should be prepared with some outdoor activities, eh? 1 :: In a sign that winter really should be over by now, the ice rink at Prospect …
