"To him, no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin"

(Photo taken by me, last time I visited the city)

It's official - I'm moving to NYC on Memorial Day weekend! I'm sorry that my blog has been so sparse these past few weeks, but it has been so much more work to plan this move than I ever thought it would be! Finding a decent sublet for the summer was almost impossible, and I'm so so lucky I stumbled upon a gorgeous, clean, quiet studio on the Upper West Side. Now I'm trying to figure out what to pack... and that part isn't going so well! Any tips on packing for a 4 month (maybe more!) stay in one of the most fashionable cities in the world? And if you're from NY, I'd love any tips on where to shop and eat too!

I'm selling a few things on ebay to help pay for NYC, check out my auctions here!

When I go to NYC I love to hit up all the Jewish Deli's! Such delicious food that is harder to find on the West Coast.
