Date Night: French Restaurant Week at Gaby Sofitel

by Tracy Kaler
The interior of Gaby at Sofitel is spacious, comfortable and inviting.
Although I'm not a fan of foie gras, I love a hearty bowl of beef Bourguignon, or a beautiful plate of duck confit. And when I dine out in New York City, I often choose French food, not only because it's a personal favorite, but because it's easy to find good quality French restaurants in many Manhattan neighborhoods.

If you’re a New York City local but you weren’t born here, you’ve probably heard it at some point – “you’re a transplant,” or “you’re not a real New Yorker.” Yes, a significant chunk of people living in New York didn’t actually grow up in this city.

Conquer Your Fears

by Tracy Kaler
 To commemorate four years of blogging, I'm sharing a few of my very first posts from TNYL. In 2011, I had a tiny audience with only a handful of readers. Today, Tracy's New York Life continues to grow and reach thousands of fans around the globe. Thank you for reading!

When I made my big move to the even bigger city, I had little time to focus on all the life adjustments I would need to make immediately upon my arrival.

Would I be able to conquer my fears enough to live in a high-rise, ride in an elevator daily, and handle a town of more than eight million people?

Every time I find myself walking on West 20th in Chelsea, I'm quickly reminded why it's among my favorite streets in the city. From charming Cushman Row –– a stretch of 1840 Greek Revival row houses on the south side between Ninth and Tenth Avenues –– to the home of the Atlantic Theater Company and St. Peter's Church, this enchanting street is infused with history and culture.
