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.
