Every time I think it’s finally getting colder in New York, the city surprises us with gorgeous almost-summer weather. Just today, I had brunch outside—in November! The sun was shining, the leaves were slowly changing as we watched the New York marathoners finish their race while sipping on Bloody Marys. This weekend reminded me once again how much I love this city—where there’s always something to do, people to see, and more people to meet. There’s never a dull moment around here, and staying home becomes a rare luxury to relish in once in a while—like a visit at the spa or a Michelin-starred dinner. We may be paying absurd rents to live in literal shoeboxes, but we really do have the best backyard.
