Never Too Cold To Run

Six miles in Central Park. 33 degrees. Finished in well under an hour.

Followed by brunch, naturally, at the Boat House, our branch office.

That is how you Saturday.

There Is A Free Roaming Chicken In Central Park Today

Over by West 74th street, right on the border of the Ramble and the pond where you can row a boat.

So many questions.

Riding In Style

Because the M101 bus is the only way to get uptown to a Junior League party.
More from the evening here.

Fall Fete

This is why I run Central Park in the middle of the day.

Captain America Defends The West Village

And he rides the subway

And patrols the playground

He's got it under control

This weekend's Halloween festivities were organized by the Friends of Bleecker Playground, a wonderful group of parents and merchants that organize events for the kiddos all year round. Even if you don't have a chitlin, a donation really goes to a wonderful cause.

Out And About

The social life certainly is perking up this autumn. Between Junior League parties and the New Yorker festival, this past weekend was quite a scene.

These are a few from the Junior League party this weekend, one of my favorites of the year. It's rare that you get a chance to get dressed up, have some drinks and just chop it up with your friends, all just a few feet from a dance floor. Logic would dictate that a cab or an Uber would bring me home after, but I'm always fascinated by how crowded subways are in the middle of the night. When I first came to Manhattan, I had a few friends who refused to take the subway after 8:00 p.m. because they felt it was unsafe. This was on the advice of their parents, who hadn't lived in New York City since the 1980s. It was outdated and silly, and, quite frankly, made them seem like little princessas (Notable: all have since defected to the suburbs, never to be heard from again.)

Unless it's freezing or I'm carrying a lot of bags, I rarely hop in cabs. Trains and buses have always been my thing. Fast, efficient, and far from the nuisance of traffic. (If you ever want to see me truly lose my mind, stick me in a cab in the middle of Midtown traffic.)

Also seen: Lego flowers in Madison Square Park.

Rainy Day Andre

Oh, come on. I can't resist a photo of my boy looking like the Gorton's fisherman.
