I spent most of last week in New York City. My experience there was mixed, what with feeling a little overwhelmed by the conference and the city. The primary saving grace was the fact that I was staying with my cousins, Betsy, Harvey and Anna (Sam, the fourth member of the family, is off at college in Michigan) in Brooklyn. They made me feel so welcome and comfortable in their house, a fact that I always appreciate when I stay with them. Then, Saturday afternoon Scott came up from Philly and we spent the evening having dinner and wandering around the city.
On Sunday, Betsy and Harvey took us to Coney Island, where we walked the boardwalk and ate Nathan’s Hot dogs (I don’t think I’ve ever had such a good hot dog in my life). After that, they took us to a Russian grocery store, where I bought some salads (I finished the beet salad today and I’m still a little sad) and a few cookies for the ride home.
