Yesterday, part deux

Alright, I've calmed down. The snow melted long ago, and though it was the main event of yesterday in my mind, there are other exciting activities about which to blog. We've quickly discovered that the old saying about how most New Yorkers live and die within a ten block radius is true, so we've decided to make mindful efforts to take advantage of other neighborhoods besides our own.

We started with a visit to Union Square and the Green/Holiday Market to get in the holiday spirit. The apples still look great, as do the brussel sprouts, which I wish I had stocked up on for the week.With a cup of hot apple cider in hand, it was a great place to watch Manhattanites pick out their trees. From Union Square, we headed over to Chelsea to finally check out the Frank Stella exhibit,which was really cool. From there, we headed to the Lower East Side to meet our friend, Justin, and to see Evan's soon-to-be new fixie! Onward to Times Square for a nanosecond to meet up with friends from out of town, then to Hell's Kitchen for drinks and dinner. Our tally at the end of the day? Including my morning sojourn to SoHo, six neighborhoods. Woohoo!

Krissy and Arlene: We are gradually starting to venture out. I think there's a trip to Brooklyn in our future!
