…Work I go.  Today was my first day as the new kid on the New York block.  I guess it’s only fair and reasonable that I don’t spend every day at museums or having picnics by the river.  That said, I can’t complain – there’s something quite exciting about getting ready to go to work in a new city.  Especially when that city is New York.

Easing into the working week was made infinitely easier on discovering my new route into work.  Not only do I get to walk past Alwyn Court, the beautiful French Renaissance style home to Petrossian (constructed between 1907-1909), but also Central Park.  I have to say, I can’t express much it pleases me that Central Park will be part of my daily commute.  That said, I must confess (somewhat embarrassingly) that this morning was the first time that I noticed the park had separate entrances for artisans and merchants.  I guess the only question now is to decide which to use…



MerchantsMy new office is based in the Upper West Side, which is conveniently located near to the brilliant Joe – purveyor of the best iced coffee to date.  It’s also home to some incredibly pretty buildings making for an idyllic walk home.  However, as wonderful as the Upper West side architecture may be, it’s the light that I think is the real star of the show.  I think this is particularly the case on the way home as dusk is starting to hit – it brings a magical quality to the city as it starts to unwind at the end of the day.   The light almost wraps around the buildings as the hustle and bustle of the city slowly dies down and the sun peeks through the trees as it says goodnight. Which, is something that I must now do.  A big day tomorrow, which may necessitate a good night’s sleep.  But more on that anon.
