Today’s Wandering Wednesday covers Midtown by Bryant Park, Washington Square Park, and snowy Brooklyn. Enjoy!
A major reason why I was MIA last month, is because my Dad was in town! We got to spend a long weekend together, visiting museums, eating amazing food, watching great theatre, and having a large slice of home at Stella Adler when my first class of acting students took the stage. I don’t want to gush about how great the visit was, how I had not seen Dad since February, yada yada yada. Instead, I’ll do what I do best, show you in pictures!!!
This weekend, I got to cross off item number 3 on my bucket list by attending the Dumbo Art Festival in Brooklyn! Since I waited until Sunday to attend, which was the last day, I decided to make a day of it. As I was getting ready I headed over to Saskia’s website to see if she would be selling jewelry in the area, and to my delight not only did she have a booth at Atlantic Antic, but she herself was selling at that location! So Sunday turned into Brooklyn Day!!
I wandered with thousands of other New Yorkers up and down Atlantic Avenue, on a very warm September afternoon listening to live music, checking out the vendors’ various wares and food options. There were a lot of people (strollers, bikes, and pups, Oh My) but I had a great conversation with Saskia at her booth and even made a connection with a vendor working for a young handbag designer based in Brooklyn.
After getting my fill of that excitement, I traipsed to the river for the Art Fest, picking up my friend AJ along the way. This bucket list item included a lot of firsts for me: I’d never been to Dumbo or Brooklyn Bridge Park, so in between the art and location it turned into a stupendous day. AJ and I headed to Shake Shack for vittles, A/C, and football chatting about upcoming plans and an acting project I’m thinking of producing. (ooooo, mystery) I was incredibly tempted to walk the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan, but with a full tummy and tired feet, I’ve decided to postpone that item. As I know you’ve come to expect I took some great photos along the way and have included them below!
Fall has begun and I already have one item checked off! Can’t wait to see what I knock out this week.
Another Wednesday brings along with it another “Wandering Wednesday!” Today the photos span Manhattan, Delaware, and my Grandmother’s house in Virginia, where I spent the Easter weekend. And even while there is a filter on the Delaware sunset photo, don’t let this information fool you, the sunset was indeed that rich and vibrant 🙂
This past weekend I went thrifting with my roommate Alicia in Brooklyn. We hit up Salvation Army, where I got a great new scarf and polka-dotted sweatshirt for $5, “Out of the Closet,” a second-hand store that benefits an AIDS relief foundation, and this cute vintage and Brooklyn themed shop called Enamoo. I took a few pics of the sunny and semi-warm day (36 lol) as we wandered around, hope you enjoy!
Remember two weeks ago I posted a behind the scenes pic from my photo shoot? Well, I am currently mired in the process of picking which photos will be presented to casting directors for the upcoming year. Here’s just one of a ton I’m wading through.Thanks Billy B!!!! Love that I have so many to choose from.
So this weekend Cynthia and I headed out to Brooklyn to have goodbye drinks with our former subletter, Willow at Burnside Bar. It was great to see her, especially since she’s Ethiopia-bound to start her new job, in under a week. I know that she will have a blast while she’s there, and kick major butt in the office with her knowledge and skills. Wishing you the best of luck Willow! See you when you get back 🙂
