In a Pickle

I don't think there is any place better in the world to buy a pickle than in New York. Our classic favorite is The Pickle Guys on Essex - truly the real deal. So many choices and they'll even let you sample. Off the touristy beaten path and well worth it!

Cooling Off in NYC

It was so much fun watching the kids play in the fountain at Washington Square - these city dwellers knew how to make the most of a steamy afternoon.

Taking a Byte out of the Big Apple

Thank heavens for Apple and the Apple stores. I have so many clients who have geniuses at what they do, but when it comes to html, code, and all of those other intricate computer languages they have no clue plus aren't interested in spending the time to learn.

The Apple Computer stores, products and geniuses make it so easy to have an online presence and look like the professional you are - not only do they make my clients lives easier they make mine easier as well!

The Best Coffee in New York City

About 20 years ago I was fortunate enough to have access to a loft in Tribeca. That was way before Tribeca was cool - in fact Sunday mornings we would have to go to Greenwich Village or Soho to get a cup of coffe and the Sunday NY Times. I miss the industrial, edgy feel Tribeca had then - now there's a Starbucks on almost every corner and traffic all day and night.

"Back in the day" we survived on deli coffee, or coffee from a street cart in the wonderful blue and white paper cups that were always the same. When I wanted something to brew at home there was only once place that could live up to my expectations - Porto Rico Importing Co.

I would always go to their location on Bleeker Street in the Village. They've been open since 1907 and understand what a great cup of coffee should taste like. Not fancy, not trendy, just great coffee at a very fair price.

Every year they have a birthday sale, and it's going on now until October 31st. If you aren't lucky enough to go to their stores to pick up your favoriote freshly roasted beans, they also sell online and offer free shipping on orders over $75.00.

I'm so glad we still have local places like this that remind me why I love NY.

Only in New York

You just never know what you'll see in New York City, but this was one of our favorites. You have to give him credit for creativity!
