It's Good to Be Back in New York + 6 Under-the-Radar Affordable Neighborhoods + Worst Summer Dates in NYC + More Linkage

If feels wonderful to be home. I've been out of town quite a bit since April –– first at a Bat Mitzvah in Tucson, followed by some vacation time in Sedona and Palm Springs. I went back to the city for but a few weeks, only to leave again for the North Fork of Long Island at the end of May.


When Friends Fly the Coop

It's not easy when your best friend leaves New York City. {credit}
I’m fortunate enough to have two of my best friends from college living in New York City. We never planned on it –– if anything, I never thought we'd live in the same city once we all graduated and left London. So once my friend Bekki broke the news that she and her husband would be leaving NYC, I wanted to throw a fit and scream something along the lines of “OMG NO!  How can you do this to me? Stay here and be my friend, dammit!” But instead, I managed a calm “Okay.”

Summer Streetwear

Do you don flip flops around town? To be honest, I wear them on a regular basis. {credit}
To commemorate four years of blogging, I'll be sharing a few of my very first posts from TNYL over the next several weeks. 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.
Flip-flops are the most popular footwear choice for New Yorkers in the warm-weather months. They're cool, comfortable, available in many styles and colors, and look good with just about anything. However, there's the occasional incident while traveling about the city in these sidewalk-snapping thong shoes. Of course, I would be one to not only witness these happenings, but be the victim of a few.


What It’s Like to Be Directionally Challenged in NYC

by Lauren Malamala
Navigating New York City can be tough if you're directionally challenged.
I thought I was relatively skilled when it comes to directions, that is, until I moved to New York City. It didn't take long to figure out that Gotham is a different beast when trying to get around. With five different boroughs, as well as neighborhoods within those boroughs, not every NYC transplant can be expected to navigate the city perfectly right off the bat.

Even after living here for four years, I still feel directionally challenged at times and have to pull over on the sidewalk occasionally to sort myself out, depending on the area. Sure, I know the Upper East Side like the back of my hand, but if I venture too far north, south, west, or to another borough? That’s a different story. Here’s an idea of what I and other directionally challenged locals face.
