Back to New York! 再びニューヨークへ

I am off to New York City soon. I am going home... my sweet home! It's been 10 months since I left for beautiful SoCal, and I've thought about New York every single day. I miss it so much that I can feel it as if I am there when I close my eyes. New York is extraordinary. There is no such a place on Earth like the Big Apple! What am I going to do there? Easy. Shop, eat, shop, eat and shop. Oh, and the museums, of course. Oh, and seeing my friends, of course!


I lived on West Broadway in SoHo for 15 years, then in NoLita for 4 years after that. NoLita was right next to the Little Italy, and I used pass this Italian deli everyday to enjoy their beautiful home made pasta display in the window. There are so many great restaurants in NYC, and I am definitely going to dine at my friend chef Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin, the best restaurant in NYC. Too bad that Eric won't be in NYC so I will miss him... Also at my old hang out places such as, Balthazar, Hampton Chutney, NoHo Star, Jackson Diner, Babbo, Turkish Kitchen and so on! And for shopping, I will check out all those small independent stores in NoLita and SoHo. Barbara Bui, one of my favorite designer, Reinstein & Ross, my favorite jewelry shop where my wedding & engagement rings come from, INA, Selima's... just to name a few.


This intersection of Prince St. and Broadway was my daily walk. I can still smell the smoke from the street vendor at that corner. I shall stop at Dean & DeLuca to get some tea and a Planet Doughnut... or perhaps icy cold cardamon coffee at the Hampton Chutney instead... or perhaps both...


And believe or not, I cannot wait to take the subway! No, I am not kidding. I miss the subways. I am so happy that I do not have to drive anywhere and I can just hop into the subway! New York, New York, here I come. Get ready for the hurricane Rima!
