”At this place the cannon brought by General Henry Knox from Fort Ticonderoga to deliver to General George Washington in the winter of 1775-1776 were used to force the British Army to evacuate Boston.”
Besides its historical role and significance, this is a quite neighbourhood park with views over South Boston, surrounded by rows of beautiful houses. Especially ambient at dusk, when the first city lights begin to flicker in the distance.

If you can’t fly over the rainbow, bring the rainbow in the room. Along with one of the most lavish brunches in the City, accompanied by the spiciest Bloody Marys (I had to give up on mine and go for some chilled white wine instead) and soft jazz music played live.
You don’t have to go far – just 65 floors high above the Rockefeller Center.
Because why else would you go chasing rainbows, if not for that view?
Best enjoyed on a sunny day; that’s when the crystal curtains on the windows sparkle the most and spread little rainbows all over the room.
Another martini Mr. Bond?

Waking up in shades of warm pink.
The beginning of a beautiful day.

With skeletons safely tucked away back into the closet, ’tis time for some serious glitter. Joy to the world! November marks the start of the Christmas Season and New York is slowly, methodically getting pretty for the grand finale. And I am going to enjoy all of it!

Walking the High Line can be a real challenge with endless rows of tourists obstructing annoyed New Yorkers obstructing desperate joggers realising only too late that their choice of running track couldn’t have been worse (actually it could but I’ll come back on that later).
But step aside, look left or right away from this nuisance and a broader – brighter – perspective will lay ahead.
