i’ve started my summer wanderings early this year. first stop, NYC!
i stayed in Harlem for a short weekend, visiting a cousin who just wrapped up her first year at university. we packed up her dorm room and then hit the town hard! well, as hard as 1-sleep-deprived-30-something and 1-19-year-old could. read: we ate well, shopped, and visited world class museums :-)
i was taken aback by the lack of street art. that city really has cleaned itself up over the past 5 years. there were a few deliberate murals, and maybe a handful of stickers on a random door in the Village. but that was it.
