Spring Kind of Fling
After living in NY for a while, there comes a point in the city when the New in New York doesn’t feel very new anymore. Everyday starts to look like the other: after work meet up with friends, go to bars, dine out, listen to music, repeat.
With the hope and promise of eventual spring in the city, I’ve decided to try something different this season.
For starters, I could begin by walking dogs in the neighborhood as a volunteer at the local shelter in Williamsburg, BARC, on 253 Wythe Avenue (at North 1st Street). http://www.barcshelter.org/ .
It could double as an excuse to walk around my block and meet rather cute neighborhoodies once the weather warms up.
Also this year, if Spring hits me harder than it usually does, I could discover my inner showgirl and sign up for Burlesque dance lessons from the School of Shimmy with the Red Hots Burlesque group.
(a hidden talent?)
Finally, something that I don’t do enough, but would love to, would be to visit various open houses around the city and admire old and new New York architecture. It’s one of those love affairs I have with this City.
And I’m hoping it’s just the inspiration I need to get into spring.
