From pop-up boot camp in the city's parks to cocktail-infused yoga, the Big Apple is never short on originality when it comes to getting fit. While tackling the city's cornucopia of sights by foot…Continue

Barbara, you rock!  I'd heard about this but never checked it out, and we often walk down to Chelsea.  This looks yummy - thanks for the link!

Where's your favorite place to have hot chocolate in the City?  This is hot chocolate weather if ever I've seen it!

To add to Pearlie Mae's comments, thanks for all the care & concern.  Seems as though we should now expect "extreme weather events" more often; the hurricane was followed by a nor'easter storm, which brought us some snow & caused additional power outages!  But today it's in the 60s and sunny - such weird weather!  Donations are probably better sent to local groups; I understand the American Red Cross has NOT had the presence one would have hoped for, in the worst-hit areas.  The Mayor's Fund: https://www.nyc.gov/html/fund/html/donate/donate.shtml is the website is making sure ALL donations go DIRECTLY to relief for people who've, so sadly, lost homes and all possessions, not to mention loved ones.

SANDY UPDATE: Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers we appreciate them very much. I live in the Bronx and for the most part there are only pockets of outages because of downed trees on wires. Most all grids are up and running. Staten Island and Long Island are a different story. All shore lines took a beating and still without power. Manpower is what is needed for the clean up. About 2000 1st Responders have severe damage or lost everything. Still not positive of the number, but that covers NYPD, NYFD and all uniformed emergency type responders. Don't have any idea how many civilian employees were affected. If you have a heart to give, there are 3 programs that are working really hard with us, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and NY Cares Coat Drive. NY Cares is our volunteer force of NYers who pitch in and help wherever they can. thanks again for all your concern. We will rebuild even better than before!

I have lived in NYC for 30 years now, since moving here for college. I saw some girls in their cap & gown this week on the subway and it did bring me back. I still feel the same awe for the city. I wouldn't live anyplace else.

I was born and raised in NYC and I miss it so much. I moved to Floirda 15 years ago and I still miss home. I joined just so that I could have a little connection. Hello to all my fellow New Yorkers!!
