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!

The 4th Best Place to See Cherry Blossoms in NYC: Finally.
It's here! A blurry map of the 4th best place to see NYC cherry blossoms. Kick a leg in the air. Wishes do come true. But wait. There's two things to keep in mind. The highway next to it is loud and almost every tree is claimed by a picnic or someone taking a picture. It wins my heart because it's close to home and it's free. This week, after you've exhausted the Conservatory Garden in Central Park, the NY Botanical Garden in the Bronx, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, come to Riverside Park for a decent (by NY standards) display of spring. It will blow your mind. Don't forget to pack a blanket, some Uno Cards, and your pet parrot.
Picnic blanket: Check
Uno Cards. Check.
Pet parrot. Check.
Remember when I used to take a million pictures of my kids and NYC? I apparently still do that. Keep reading for proof.
