(A list that will grow over time)
1. Buildings collapsing near my train line and the subsequent very long delays to get home. New York is crumbling, people!
2. Restaurants being forced to close because of greedy, greedy landlords. God know what monstrosity will open up in this space. Le Madeleine will be greatly missed.
3. The Oyster Bar. I really (used to) like this place. It was high on my list of places to revisit before we left, so when a friend who moved to California last year was in town, we set the plans in motion to meet up there. The dinner was really a comedy of errors. I typed out all of the things that went wrong, then deleted it. It just comes down to the fact that they didn’t care one whit about our experience. Sigh.
But I’ve cast on a new sock, with yarn purchased during a trip to Portland. I’ve mentally checked out of New York and have Portland on my mind.
