Back in NYC

Back in NYC and I have hit the ground running.  We are moving at the end of the month and there is loads to do.  Clean every drawer and every closet.  Organize what is coming, what is being tossed and what is going to storage.  First task was cleaning my desk which means going through every single file.  With all of that rattling around my brain including the normal day to day stuff…I am feeling a bit brain dead.   Last time we moved I could barely put one foot in front of the other when we were done.  Forgot about that lovely feeling.

Today, I took time out to have lunch with my best friend before she took off for a week to Israel.  We hit up our favorite coffee stop, 9th Street Espresso in the Chelsea Market.  Best treat of the day.

    Didn’t you just move into a brand new place last year? What is prompting this move?

        Hah!By the way, I stopped by 9th street espresso when I was in town recently. Great place, but don’t take cash-free Fred there. I learned the hard way they don’t take cards, as they made me abandon my americano until I went and found an ATM.

          Fred has learned the hard way, particularly on vacation. He might be a oneman band for the cashless society.

    you are going to need another vacation after the move i bet.

    1. Gotham Gal

      No doubt.

    just take the move slowly. It took me months to move years ago. I just kept my lease to my apt for a couple of extra months as I slowly moved into the house. I pack breakables very well, but had incredible tension as I moved my early German Dresden collection. Those lacy skirts and little fingered putti made my heart pound.Worked well though. All was safe. You will be glad you are a more 20/21 century gal.

      Your move sounds like a dream. Unfortunately I am one of those people thatonce we start the move, I don’t stop until the place is completely unpackedand looks like we have lived there for years. Even every picture hung.Must be in my DNA.

        Completely empathize with that. I need to do the same. 🙂

    Ever go to San Francisco? In the Ferry Building market right next to Embarcadero Center: http://www.bluebottlecoffee…Even their website is fascinating. Never had better, Italy included. I’ll try your spot next time I’m in NYC.

      Yep. Know Blue Bottle. Danny Meyer uses them in one of his restaurants.

    I really like that photo. Could be part of an “I heart NY” graphic.Moving sucks but tossing loads of stuff….love it! Especially in spring.I say, bring on the dumpster.

    1. Gotham Gal

      I’m with you. Nothing like a good toss!

    What!?!? Moving again?!?! Now where? Same neighborhood? You crack me up. I didn’t even get a tour of this home. Sigh.

    1. Gotham Gal

      Still in the West Village. Hopefully we will stay planted for a long time.

    I would shamelessly(!) love to be standing on the sidewalk when you’re throwing stuff out your window. You have great taste, and your trash would probably be the most fabulous trash ever.
