As someone who has lived in New York for about 5 years now… I have come to dread passing through Times Square. It’s busy, crowded, loud and touristy but of course, it is also in the center of the city making it a convenient and a must visit area. Last Friday I was invited to preview the new CitizenM hotel. I had no idea what to expect….
Came back from Boston yesterday and this is how New York greeted me: sunshine, after a cold rainy weekend.
For years, I’ve been running along the Hudson River next to bikers in their spandex gear, shiny helmets and glistening sunglasses. To me, biking didn’t really seem like a workout and it didn’t seem fair they could go faster and farther than I could on foot. For me biking was a leisure sport done in cute clothes. Boy was I wrong.
