When we returned to New York last week for the third and final time this year, we were blessed with the most incredible Fall weather: temperatures rocketed into the low 70s, the skies were blue and the sun was shining all except one day.
Our fear for a November trip to New York was that freezing temps would trap us indoors (we have very few warm clothes), but instead we went on a walking food tour through hipster Williamsburg – and watched this sunset from the East River Beach there, cycled through Manhattan on Citibikes, watched the New York Marathon in colorful Central Park and checked out the ice rink in Bryant Park. Even the nights were warm – the night of the Halloween Parade was downright balmy. We were also able to catch up with friends, discover a new favorite pizza joint (Bastille Artichoke – I loved their artichoke pizza!), revisit our beloved Doughnut Plant and satisfied cravings for ethnic foods like Thai and Indian, knowing that once we got to South America for the next six months.
There was nowhere in the northern hemisphere we would have rather spent our last few days, proving to us once again that New York is one our favorite places in the world! For now though, it’s time to enjoy Chile’s spring weather!
