Hi! In October 2010, I moved from San Francisco to Manhattan with my husband, daughter, and twin boys. Since then I've been busy teaching myself and my kids how to hail a cab, fly a kite in Central Park, and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge with style. And a few other things. I write about those other things here. Thanks for stopping by!

Every year, a few locals organize a Fourth of July Parade. Kids come with decorated bikes or scooters and make their way down a few blocks while being excorted by a police car and firetruck. Some people serve up lemonade, watermelon, and pretzels. At the end of the parade, the firetruck sprays out water from it's truck. It was a very low key tradition that completely exceeded all my expectations. I love when I can feel a sense of community even when I'm in a huge city.
The details: July 4th, 10am, Morningside Dr. and 115 St. Hope to see you next year!
