I know what you’re thinking, “big deal….your in culottes again”. “We’ve all been wearing culottes for over a year now”. Well, you’d be right.

With this post, I’m in culottes but its really about me being back in Manhattan. As some of you might remember, I moved in to a new apartment several months back. I did a post about it,  click here to see “New Dwelling” . About a month in, my place was flooded by a pipe on the roof. (Being on the top floor, not all that fabulous in my case). The complex promised to fix my apartment and they most certainly did. In the interim, I moved back home to Long Island. What a nightmare. An hour and ten minute commute, door to door everyday. Yikes!

You can imagine how excited I was to move back to NYC! On the very first weekend back in the city, I booked a shoot.

My complex has wonderful manicured grounds. Tree-lined pathways and a water fountain. They have a tennis court, a basketball court & even a deck hockey court. There’s really no need to go very far to take a picture…… so I didn’t.

 I love Manhattan and my sweet spot is Gramercy. I can’t ever imagine leaving this great city. That is unless I have the opportunity to live overseas.
