If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m a sucker for a view.
Someone visiting from Korea asked me what he should go explore. As an inveterate walker and lover of the city, I offered to take him around today.
During finals week, December 11 to be exact, I had the great pleasure of attending the Mount Sinai Women’s Health Fashion Show and Luncheon one beautiful afternoon at the Waldorf Astoria, thanks to the graciousness of a donor who extended this invitation to me and a couple of my peers.
I’m in my room right now writing this post. The same room that never lost power, water or internet the whole time Hurricane Sandy was wreaking havoc on the rest of the city/east coast. Yesterday, instead of staying inside for warmth and safety as advised, I decided to go for a run, go out for food and even walked 40 blocks to watch a movie. While I walked around in an attempt to get fresh air and work off the weight I must have gained from the sedentary Sandy lifestyle, I also wanted to see how the rest of New York was doing. From where I was and what I saw, New York seemed to be untouched. Midtown/uptown was buzzing, tourists were aplenty, cars were stuck in traffic, people were even in costume for Halloween.
