this past weekend was my first here in new york after moving here. i arrived the previous sunday and had been working all week, so i wanted to go out for adventures.
of course, after a warm week when i was sitting inside the office, it was raining.
but that was ok, because it was pretty anyways. i walked from where i’m staying (murray hill, which is kind of midtown east) to koreatown where i had lunch, and then took the metro to west village.
it’s so pretty there, with thick green trees and taquerias open straight to the street.
i met up with my san francisco friend robert who also lives in new york now, and we saw these cute ones pass us by on the street.
we were actually in west village to help robert’s friends with putting up curtains. it was a much harder project than we thought! it took a couple of hours, a few beers and some DIY-attempts of marking walls with eyeliner pencils, but we kind of succeeded.
by the time we were done, it was raining even worse than before, but me and robert had promised to meet up with our other friend jay, so we headed out in the rain.
maybe a few of you remember our magazine creatura? we were a little group of people who put this magazine together when we all were based in san francisco. now, three out of the six of us live in new york, so me, robert and jay met up to work on another number. i’ll show you when it’s done!
and then we walked around chelsea market for a bit before walking round and round in circles around meatpacking and chelsea trying to find some dinner. you know how it is .. it’s always something wrong. closed, only takeaway, too expensive, wrong kind of food, not cozy enough, blah blah blah. AT LAST, we found a ramen place, and then topped it off with two beers. good ending to my last new york saturday after all.
min första new york-lördag! regnade gjorde det såklart. jag vandrade genom regnet till koreatown och käkade lunch där innan jag hoppade på tunnelbanan till west village där jag mötte upp robert. vi skulle hjälpa hans kompisar att sätta upp gardiner, och när vi var klara med det efer mycket om och men mötte vi upp jay. alla vi tre är från san francisco, och vi jobbade ju på vår tidning creatura tillsammans. nu när vi tre är här passade vi på att jobba på nästa nummer. och så vandrade vi runt i timmar för att hitta en bra middag. det gjorde vi till slut, och en ramen och två öl fick avsluta lördagen!
