City of Letters

Just a short post for today, I’ll be back with something a bit better tomorrow. If you follow me on Instagram (alexshook), you know that I’ve really been getting around New York. I’ve been in Williamsburg twice in the past month and DUMBO for the first time. I really can’t believe I’d never been in Brooklyn Bridge Park before.

I’ve been spending more time in Alphabet City as well. I don’t know how I’d never been there before last month either, especially because it’s so close to my neighborhood. It’s quite a good place to wander around, especially on a Sunday after a jaunt to Brooklyn Flea. Only one stop on the L.

It’s officially coat season in New York. London Fog trench, J.Crew blouse and skirt, Cole Haan shoes, Longchamp bag.

Manhattan from the East River Waterfront, Williamsburg.

      It’s warm enough. It has a flannel lining, so it’s too hot for a lot of traditional trench weather, but too cold for true winter. It’s perfect for temperatures now, about 45-60 degrees. Too far above 60 and it’s too hot though.
