MONOCHROMATIC MORNINGS

Today was one of those days. Do I have to get out of bed? For anyone else that works a 9-5, I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from when I say it's too easy to fall into a routine. Into a monochromatic lifestyle.

But whenever I'm feeling this way, I just need to remind myself that I live in the best city in the world. Any beyond that, (okay here's my biased opinion), I live in the best neighborhood. West side best side. 
Central Park is a 5 minute walk from me, and is therefore the obvious choice for a walk in the park. This morning, though, I decided to change it up a little bit. Two blocks in the other direction--wild right!!? And here, welcome to the Upper West Side. Riverside Park--sure, it's no Central Park spanning 50 some-odd blocks, but it sure is beautiful. Tell me there are cherry blossoms and I'm basically on my way. 


As much as I'd love to relax in the park all day, it's time to head back to my apartment. You know, that whole work at 9am thing? The best part about my walk back, or anytime I leave my apartment, is the little mural just around the corner. Waking up last fall to a Twitter feed full on Banksy spottings on the Upper West Side, I couldn't help but feel like my neighborhood was finally complete. Our very own Banksy!!
I have to say. This picture circa February has to be the best of the bunch, featuring my favorite artist besides Banksy-- titled "Getting hammered in NYC."
Follow him on Instagram here-- he has many more NYC adventures to come!



Monochromatic mornings don't always have to be boring. They can be as colorful as you want them to.
