nyc's newest neighborhood.

It's good to see that in the wake of the horrifying storm that was Sandy last week some New Yorkers are able to find a touch of humor in the situation. Seeing the photos of hundreds of marathon runners heading to Staten Island today to help clean up, getting emails from my favorite restaurants in my old neighborhood that were giving out free food to those without power and chatting with friends who were housing everyone that could fit in their teeny tiny (but with power!) apartments all week reminded me if there was ever a city that can recover from a tragedy, it is most certainly my beloved New York. I love you New York, and I can't wait to visit you soon! If you want to help with Sandy relief efforts, you can donate to the American Red Cross here.


  1. Hi Lily!

    This post is so true, I am still living in the land of SoPo even though most of the city now has power. I love your blog and have nominated you for Liebster Award! I hope all is well and I can not wait to see what you post next!
