Visitor from San Francisco, wide eyed and bushy tailed

Hi, I’m Liz. For a week or two, I’ll be giving you my San Francisco Metroblogger viewpoint of New York City. I’ve visited a few times very briefly, in transit or towed by relatives, but this is really the first time I’ve “been to New York”.

My plans are to walk around, going to libraries, cafes, and bookstores, pausing to write wherever it seems convenient, so it will be a nerd’s eye view. In SF, I blog about random encounters with people, and library trips, literary readings like Writers With Drinks, poetry, and performance events like Lynnee Breedlove’s One Freak Show, life between the sort-of-suburbs and the city, and, well, hanging around writing in internet cafes, time-honored tradition of bloggers everywhere.

I also write for BlogHer, mostly on the topic of what’s going on with Latin American women’s blogs; for other magazine; and for Feminist SF, a group blog about feminism and science fiction.

    Don’t forget the boroughs! While Manhattan has plenty to keep you occupied for years, I recommend you visit Brooklyn and Queens while you’re here. My neighborhood (Astoria, Queens) has its own unique feel, superb Greek food, the renowned Beer Garden, and some great museums and parks. Just take the N or W train to 30th, Broadway, or Ditmars.
