i miss new york. there was a time when i was there 4-6 times a year for business and it felt like my second home. i haven’t been back for a few years now. i miss slipping seamlessly into the tension and the grit and complexion of the city and the streams of people rushing past me on the sidewalk in midtown and quiet moments on neighborhood streets in chelsea when there wouldn’t be a soul around. i miss the odd smell of the subway air and how my feet would ache at the end of the day, from walking and walking and walking uptown crosstown downtown. i miss the narrow streets of the village and the neighborhood shops on the upper west side. i miss the cab drivers asking me if i wanted to take the triboro bridge or the midtown tunnel from laguardia and knowing exactly where i would end up depending on what my answer was. i miss riverside drive and pommes frites and the cupcake cafe and the mud truck.

but i can always remind myself of the good times and laugh a little bit when i look the brooklynese collection from one of my favorite shops, fishs eddy.





amusing! but i still think a trip is in order soon.

purchase them all right here.

    These are really entertaining. I can totally hear the accent in my ear.

    Boy, New York has great food, but way to fast for me. My natural pace is at least half of what New York’s is. I’ve only been there once and felt like I needed a nap after a few hours. It would be fun to visit again since I loved the Met and only had time to spend in the Egyptian exhibit.

    I wonder if a New Yorker would use this set, or if it’s just fun and silly to the rest of us non-New Yahkas.

    hi bri,

    i think they are funny. i have a theory that the pace o people gets slower the further west you go in this country. 🙂

    i’m thinking this collection is most likely purchased by visitors to gotham, but you never know.

    thanks for the visit!
