What I Did This Weekend: Snow in NYC!

It finally snowed in New York this weekend and what a beautiful snow it was. Light, short, and melting by the next day. Perfect. I was so scarred by the last NYC Winter that I was very wary leading into November, espesh after October's freak snowstorm. Alas, here it is January and we got our first (and little baby) snow in NYC! Therefore what I did this weekend was walk through Riverside Park my favorite NYC locals park and book a lot of veg out movie seshes with the roommie!

Riverside Park is on the Hudson River along the Upper West Side. It is by far the most quaint and remote park in the city, with I would guess 98% locals. This is where I go running...although what I did this weekend was merely spectate the snow in NYC....not run on it.

 Fun Fact: Riverside Park is where You've Got Mail was filmed. The whole movie was actually set in my neighborhood on the Upper West Side. As is, Will & Grace and How I Met Your Mother!

 I love watching old favorite NYC movies and discovering they are right around the corner from my apartment! That actually happened this weekend when my roomie and I watched Uptown Girls!

I had quite a productive weekend. I ironed all of my clothing alterations. My fashion friend and I have regular sewing nights which we grabbed one on Martin Luther King Day when we were both off of work. I then cleaned my room putting away my better fitting clothes and  I prepared my taxes for Tax Season 2012. To end the perfect weekend, I watched the NY Giants field goal kick their way into the Super Bowl! Since my dear Carolina Panthers are officially out, bless their hearts, I begin rooting for my NY teams. It's hard having a divided heart...

Congratulations New York Giants!

I love the UWS so much. We live so far downtown and we always say that up there is our next (and perhaps final if we finally decide on a neighborhood)...everytime we're up there we fall more and more in love with it.Riverside Park is one of my favorite places in the city.

And thanks for stopping by this am. :)
