Although I don't currently live in New York, I find myself spending so many weekends there and so much time there in general that it's pretty much my home away from home away from home. (Weirdly cyclical because I consider my current home the home away from home which is New York.)*
*Sorry if that was confusing, haha
Anyways, I'm in New York at least three weekends out of every month because I have relatives that live there, and because of those fantastic fresh fruit and vegetable markets in Chinatown! My parents love them, even though they're awfully overcrowded, in my opinion. We always take the car in and fill up the trunk with groceries for the week the way normal people from the suburbs do on their Sunday afternoon shopping trips.
And the bakeries!
Something else I like to do is take pictures of strangers without them realizing it, haha.
