New York is steadily transitioning into winter. Most of the leaves are off the trees, eggnog lattes are in abundance and pea-coats are out in full force.
I am ready for winter but right around this time every year I feel a a tinge of longing for the last few days of autumn. The bright colors, crisp 55 degree mornings and a general calm about the city. I know fall is behind us and I am prepared for the next few months of winter. I have decided this year I will embrace the cold and intend to fully cover the city and all its winter related activities (and yes, I will attempt to cross-country ski in Central Park this year.)
