Wilder Pictures: A Few New York City Moments from a While Ago
I was in New York City for work in February and was able to spend a fair amount of time wandering around. Rather than flood my Instagram with even more pictures than I did (sorry, guys), I thought I'd save some to put up here, even if it's a month later. The photo above comes from the New York Public Library and the quote (from Milton) reads: “A good book is the precious life-blood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.”
The NYPL had an exhibit about children's books that I absolutely loved. There were both medieval texts carefully ensconced behind glass as well as first editions of modern, beloved stories.

Charlotte's Web was included, complete with a recording of E.B. White reading it.

Drinking at the Long Island Bar in Brooklyn made me feel super with-it because The New Yorker had just run a little blurb about the place. The drinks were great, but there was no food, and sometimes (okay, always) a girl wants to munch on some peanuts or something, you know?

But the best part about the bar was meeting Hannah Kirshner, the founder of Sweets & Bitters, a book of recipes she publishes a few times a year, each one following a different theme. She also has a blog, and the design and menus she comes up with for both are beautiful and delicious.

Running in Central Park, even on foggy, cold days, kept me somewhat sane. I liked the grit on the streets, so I took a picture.

I could have moved into Eataly. Cheeses, meats, spreads, pots, pans, coffees, books...

And one more: me in front of Where the Wild Things Are at the NYPL. Because I had to.
