Big City Breathless
Anyone who has stepped foot into Times Square will understand what I mean when I say it takes your breath away. So much happens so fast, and the city slows for no one.
Times Square is how I imagine a bizarre to be; the people rushing past you, the different colored light, honking horns, shouting voices, and the overwhelming smell of roasting peanuts and meat.
As Claire and I rounded the corner of 42nd street and into Time Square we were picked up and dissolved into the shuffle. It was a wonderful and and ongoing whirlwind that carried us through the next 2 days as if time had melted away (so much so that I nearly forgot to blog until now!).
While we were in New York we saw two incredible shows, Pippin and The Realistic Jonses! We also dined at Hearth, Estela (where we had the BEST beef tartar in the world), and ABC Cocina. In between the food and the shows, and lots and lots of walking, we also toured four remarkable schools; NYU Gallatin, Pratt, Columbia, and The New School! New York City is such a vibrant place it is no surprise that such diverse learning communities have found their home there.
Overall, New York was incredible! It left me excited for the day, the moment, and the future.
We just got into Atlanta and will soon be off to Emory! Stay tuned!
