Time to get New Yorkier

One of the best things about New York (and there are too many to list, although maybe one day I will) is that there’s always something new to try. Always. And we’re lucky to have great publications and blogs that tell us all about all the things we should be doing. It’s easy to immediately say, “I must go here!” And easier to forget about it less than an hour later. Kind of like movie trailers. Especially the ones at the Angelika. How am I ever supposed to remember? We’re all busy people, with busy, crowded minds.

I recently started writing in a little notebook (with an ironically Parisian cover) all the restaurants, movies, shows, galleries, bars, et al that I saw, read or heard about in our great city . I thought, “There, now I won’t forget anymore.” But who was I kidding? I was the notetaker in college who scribbled (still do. not all girls have neat handwriting) and never turned a looseleaf page backwards until it was time to cram.

No, I needed to put my wildest New York ambitions somewhere I always look. The internet! I’ve started this blog in an effort to make my life New Yorkier. And the lives of any friends, roommates or dates I drag along with me. Your days of receiving ridiculous excel spreadsheets with New York Magazine’s “best of” lists organized by price and food genre are over. It’ll all go here. And I hope you enjoy.

  2. Can’t wait to become a regular New Yorkier reader. Nice inaugural post. Don’t be shy about including photoshopped pics of yourself doing funny New York things with your new bold hair.

  3. Woah… this one ought to be fun! I gotta say, what I really love most is the little smiley dude at the way bottom of the screen. Nice touch!

  4. Your brother

    Now you’re like Sarah Jessica Parker from Sex and the City (except you don’t look like a foot). I approve.

    Very cool! As a non- New Yorker I love this blog because it’ll be a great resource for me the next chance I get to enjoy your amazing city. It sounds like you enjoy the unique, creative and somewhat daring aspects of life (and dining) so it’s interesting to see what you’ll come up with in here!
    Enjoyable writing style too! Keep writing and I’ll keep checking back! 🙂
