Today is kind of like a new year. Summer vacation is over, we’re all going “back to school” and shit is about to get real for most people at work this week. Around this time I always feel a sense of new beginnings and a buzz in the air anticipating fall. This year I feel it amplified 1000x because we’re leaving the city in 10 days (eek!) and the feeling of change is palpable.
This weekend, we cancelled our trip to New Hampshire to start packing and enjoy the city for one last weekend (next weekend is NYFW so I’m not even counting that as real life). I’m so glad we did! Not only did we get a serious head-start on packing up the apartment but we also bought a new (king-sized!) bed, measured our new place, and did some final NYC exploring.
Although I’ve lived on the Upper East Side for 7 years now, I love heading downtown for a totally different feel in the city. When Calypso St. Barth reached out about partnering on a neighborhood guide to promote their Meatpacking location, I jumped at the chance because some of my favorite bars and restaurants are in that neck of the woods.
Meatpacking Neighborhood Guide:
– Bar Sardine for a warm-night cocktail and apps
– The Meadow for the most beautiful flower arrangements
– Claudette for a glass of rosÃ©
– Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe for coffee
– Stray Kat Art Gallery to explore your artistic side
– The High Line to watch the sunset
