Today I'm back for another interview. Thanks, Tracy, for agreeing to do these Q & A sessions.  As you know, I find New York to be fascinating, as well as the people living in it. So, let's chat again. Me, in my house in Digby, Nova Scotia. You, in your apartment on the Upper West Side of New York City.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Bushwick, Brooklyn

Straight from the outer boroughs

Roberta's pizza is some of the best pie you'll find anywhere in NYC. 
Before Vogue named it one of the world’s most stylish neighborhoods, Bushwick was, and still is an artistic, family-oriented area in Northern Brooklyn. Current residents have gravitated towards Bushwick due to its proximity to Williamsburg, (and cheap rent as compared to other parts of New York City), resulting in an influx of artists, renovated warehouse lofts, and artisanal coffee shops.

If you find it tough to walk around the Big Apple without indulging your sweet tooth or satisfying your carb craving, rest assured, you're not alone. (Millions of others are right there with you.)

These local favorites produce pounds of sugary treats and wholesome baked goods for New Yorkers and tourists alike. In fact, where would sweetaholics be without NYC's best ethnic bakeries?

What to Do in New York on a Rainy Day

NYC isn't quite as romantic in the rain. {photo credit}
Let's face it –– New York loses an inch of its romance when the weather is crappy. I'll be the first to admit that I hibernate when arctic air takes over Gotham, or a damp, rainy day headlines the forecast. Luckily, this city offers a host of indoor activities that can be almost as much fun as exploring the streets of Williamsburg, touring major sights, or decompressing in Central Park, all of which are more apropos when the sun is shining, and the temperature exceeds 50 degrees. Since Mother Nature doesn't cooperate 24/7, let's take a look at what to do in NYC on a rainy day.

A Manhattan Picnic Guide: Where to Go and What to Pack

by Lauren Malamala
Central Park is the obvious choice for an outdoor meal, but the city offers a list of lovely places for a picnic lunch.
Once the warmer months return, New York City is the perfect place to have a picnic. Rather than packing and schlepping an enormous basket with dishes and silverware (although it can be fun to go the more traditional route once in a while), NYC is full of restaurants, bakeries, and delicatessens with a wide range of delicious to-go options. Of course, Central Park is an obvious choice for an outdoor meal, but here are five alternative Manhattan picnic spots and where to shop for your al fresco foodstuffs.

New York's urban forest is spectacular. 
We might not think of the concrete jungle as very green or environmentally friendly, but unbelievably, NYC has more than five million trees, and 592,000 of those trees live and grow on city streets. That's impressive....
