i love NY

September 8, 2010

. . . . . . . . . .

it was pouring rain for the first 3 days i was in NYC … apologies to you, new yorkers: i didn’t mean to bring the london weather with me. but even so, it was so damn good to be back, to see familiar faces, to visit my favorite haunts. i miss NY.

one night, my friend winnie and i escaped a torrential downpour at roberta’s, where i enjoyed my first sixpoint ale in 8 months (oh man, how i miss it) and we ate some absolutely delicious food.  highlights of the meal: the cortes pizza and the pasta special with sea urchin and mussels. 

HERE is an awesome video that shows the making of the cortes pizza and some scenes from roberta’s (“a local brooklyn soap company” — hilarious.  sometimes brooklyn is so cliché it hurts). do not miss the end of the video.

and thanks for the nice welcome back around here – it’s good to be posting again and to hear from you.  cheers.

    so interesting to me how these photographs look like London!
    hmm. it’s like your eye was seeing differently post-London.
    and of course the rain doesn’t hurt! :)

    I was going to say the same thing as Maria. These are divine. And I’m crazy about those antlers in the foyer. Were you crazy about being at Marlow & Sons again?

    And thanks for that rain…it was such a welcome relief from the hot & humid! I was in heaven those days!

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve always wanted to visit NYC. I live in Houston. Two big cities but vastly different.

    Love your photos, Brian – especially the shots of cups and glasses. It’s neat to see photos of mundane things done artistically. Keep ’em coming.

    Beautiful photos. It’s ace to revisit old haunts. I always see them with a fresh pair of eyes too which is nice. And it’s always funny to see the little things that have changed and what’s stayed the same.
