Miss(ed) Manners

Apparently, New York is an Island!

My little sister flew into New York last night to crash on my couch. I can never say enough good things about that little girl, err… grown woman… err… um, you know what I mean.

Anyway, I brought her to work today before putting her on a train back to my parents’ place and we decided to grab a little breakfast out on the waterfront. Our new office is so far down town that Battery Park City is just over the West Side Highway and man is it a different world over there.

It’s so extremely easy to completely forget that New York is surrounded on three sides by a large amount of water. I guess back in the 70’s and 80’s no one wanted to be reminded of this since the park areas near that water was crawling with walking dirty syringes (or at least that’s what my parents used to tell me when I was a kid). Now, it’s absolutely gorgeous.

We got some sandwiches, drank some coffee, took in the sun and stared off pompously at New Jersey. What an amazing way to start the day. Eggs, bacon and see breezes and my little sister being all growned up and shit.

Current Mood: Understandably Exuberant.



  1. Aww! What a sweet big bro you are…i’d ask you to be my big bro, but i’m older than you…in the market for a really cool big sis?

    Love that part of the city. Used to be one of my fave stomping grounds back when i used to live in Teaneck. Even managed to maintain a good relationship with it for a while after i moved (foolishly) to SoJo (that’s southern nj), but it’s since tapered off. After you spoke so favorably about it, i think i’m gonna make the trek.

    I definitely am in need of an awesomely cool Big Sis. No application required, sweety.

    I’ve been taking my lunches out there recently as well, absolutely stunning.
