At the beginning of the summer I moved across the country. For that reason I’ve been slow in both crossing items of my list and in blogging about the ones I’ve completed. It also threw a wrench in a few of the goals on my list that are contingent upon me living in New York. I’ve still got several months to make complete my list, but I might have to make some updates to the more New York-centric ones.
Luckily, things worked out so that I was able to cross off this goal this fall. I knew after I moved that I was going to need to go back to New York before the end of the year. It’s hard to leave a place that feels like home without the knowledge that you’ll be going back, so I planned an October trip to see friends fairly early on. (October in New York is the best, it’s my favorite month.) Once I knew the dates, I had the brainstorm to see if we could book the sailboat tour. I wanted something that was more personal than corporate, so I booked through SideTour. We went on this tour with Walter Masterson, and I cannot recommend it enough.
I’m lucky enough that I have five amazing friends who indulged me and came along for the ride. Thank you Alicia, Allison Amber, Amy, and Kate—it wouldn’t have been the same without you. I think we all got a whole new view of the city, and fell in love with it even more.
