rob spent some time doing a show in germany last year and shared with me that they often refer to frankfurt as mainhatten because it's the only city in the country with skyscrapers (and because it's located on the main river). i think it's a tremendously clever play on words so this edition of my manhattan will be entitled in that same spirit.
wednesday night found the two of us swing dancing (where i was too busy doing the lindy hop to snap any photos) followed by a lovely walk in riverside park. the weather was heaven-sent: cool and crisp-- one could smell the lushness of the northeast. it was one of those nights that reminded me why it is often in the dead of summer, late in the evening when the city has thinned and settled, that i am most in love with new york and all its offerings.
