Happy Easter, everyone! I'm not really up to anything much today, aside from eating jelly beans and relaxing (maybe I can sit out on the balcony and enjoy some spring weather later on.) Whatever you're doing, I hope your day's a good one.
Per my Instagram, here's what I've been up to lately.
One. Cool street art spotted in Astoria.
Two. Blooming trees in Astoria.
Three. Amazing birthday cake cream cheese at the Tompkins Square Bagels.
Four and five. Graffiti spotted in the East Village.
Six and seven. Saturday was Record Store Day, which means standing in line with music junkies to snatch up limited edition records. Though I don't have a record player, my boyfriend does, and I always enjoy browsing record stores and experiencing the enthusiasm around Record Store Day. We stood in line at Turntable Lab for about two hours, then dropped by Kim's (only to find out that they had the record we'd been waiting in line for, only there was no line!) It was a lovely day to be out and about in the East Village; spring finally seems to be here (despite the snow we had last week.) Also, in case you're wondering, we were seeking The Field's album From Here We Go Sublime. And it did indeed sound sublime on vinyl.
Eight. It was crazy bright yesterday, and my shadow was so intense that I had to take a shadow selfie.
Nine. A beautiful view of St. Mark's Place with the trees in bloom.
As you can see, the city's in bloom and I couldn't be happier. I hope all of your cities are just as beautiful right now!
