…took a trip to Kingston, New York

If you live in New York City, it’s necessary to escape it every now and then. Earlier this month, I had a couple of days off work and decided to take myself on a trip. I picked Kingston because I’d read it was historic and cute, plus I found a beautiful apartment above a gallery on Airbnb, …

…fell in love with Waterford NY

Forget Chipotle and Days of Our Lives, my favorite thing about the U.S. is its sheer variety. I love Georgia for its cities frozen in time, Illinois for its glistening architecture, California for its deserts, Washington for its remote islands and Vermont for being the greenest place I have ever seen. And New York? New York offers everything …

Things I’ve loved about New York this week

‘New York hasn’t had a summer this year,’ seems to be a pretty common refrain right now. And I would agree for the most part – I swear previous years have been far, far sweatier. But I’ve still been trying to make the most of the outdoors before we’ll be pulling on our snowboots and …

…ventured to Port Jefferson, Long Island

I love it when we go to Long Island. I love the hour drive out there – with Ryan singing along to the radio – and I love the trees, harbors and beautiful homes when we arrive. I feel like I can exhale. So when we were invited to Nick and Christine‘s wedding, it was a bonus that it was …

….went scuba diving in Dutch Springs

Before I went to Dutch Springs – a lake in Pennsylvania filled with sunken helicopters, school buses and fire trucks – I had no idea how I’d react. Having only ‘dived’ in a swimming pool in Chelsea, I didn’t know how I’d cope with that murky expanse reaching beneath me on my first ever open-water plunge. As it turned …

Lydia’s List :: Ideas for the weekend

I’ve had one of those weeks where every day felt like it was Friday. So I am relieved that it finally is – and now I can look forward to my weekend plan of cleaning up Prospect Park with New York Cares and heading to the Museum of the Moving Image. There will also be …

…went roller skating in Prospect Park

A couple of weekends ago in Lydia’s List, I told you about the skate rink that had opened at the new LeFrak Center in Prospect Park. This weekend, I re-lived my days as a six-year-old roller disco queen and gave it a spin. It was great. The rink, which is on the northeast side of …

Lydia’s List for the weekend

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 …

…visited the Brooklyn Night Bazaar

I can never get enough of a good market, and now there’s a new way to get my fix: the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. While this night market has been tried for short stints over the past three years, it now has a permanent home on the corner of Banker and Norman streets in Greenpoint. Every …
