    Visit The MOMA’s Sculpture Garden For Free

    Thursday, July 24, 2014

    On a recent visit to the MOMA, I noticed the queuing system had changed…it seemed they were only checking tickets to go upstairs, rather than also on the ground floor of the museum…the floor that houses the sculpture garden.  I asked at the information desk, and sure enough, the garden is now free to the […]

    Bye Bye Starbucks, Hello Save Bucks!

    Wednesday, July 23, 2014

    A few months ago I interviewed Stefanie from The Broke and Beautiful Life, who has a really great mantra when it comes to spending and saving money: write everything down!  So I did just that.  And you know what a quick scan of my iPhone Notes recently told me?  Since the start of summer, I’ve […]

    Get Blown Away (Or Not) At The New Museum’s Exhibit “Here And Elsewhere”

    Monday, July 21, 2014

    {totally love this dishtowel hanging in the gift shop…says it all;-)} As Manhattan’s only dedicated contemporary art museum, the New Museum is known for being THE destination for new art and new ideas.  And on top of that, the museum features the work of living artists, which we at UYC think it pretty awesome. {Sidenote: I’ll […]

    New Yorker Moments: One Year

    Friday, July 18, 2014

    Last week Mr. P and I celebrated our 1st anniversary of being very married!  Seriously, where does the time go?! I mentioned to him that as an anniversary gift (because 1st year = paper, right?), I’d like to make a tradition of taking photos each July 7th.  Ya know, kind of like how some families […]

    An Afternoon On Roosevelt Island

    Thursday, July 17, 2014

    I often joke around that I’m “staying on the island for the summer”…meaning the island of Manhattan, of course.  But there’s another island right next door that’s super quick and easy to get to (no car needed!), and offers a lot of quiet, solitude, and nature that we’re not necessarily swimming in on the island […]

    Lunchtime Meditation At The Three Jewels

    Tuesday, July 15, 2014

    Meditation has always been something that’s intrigued me (remember, it was on my summer to-do list!).  While I practice yoga on the regular, it’s never been much of a zen activity for me…let’s chalk this up to the fact that I like hot yoga, and it’s hard to be zen when you have about a […]

UYC’s Kitchen: Ricotta Crostini

Every time I go to a wine bar, my go-to appetizer is those delectable little ricotta crostinis.  A combination of so many of my favorite flavors, they’re the perfect meeting point between salty and sweet, filling but not stuffing, to pair with a glass of vino.     On a whim, I decided to try […]

Picnicking Made Pleasant With The Parasheet

What’s the one thing that can ruin a NYC picnic faster than you can say rainstorm?  Why, the picnic blanket, of course.  Hear me out on this, New Yorkers. If you’re anything like me, extra sheets are a rarity in the apartment because 1. it discourages guests from overstaying their welcome, and 2. unlike people […]

A Day On A Dude Ranch

When I was in elementary school, my first grade teacher taught us to tell the difference in spelling “desert” and “dessert”.  ”Dessert” has two s’s, because you always want another helping, whereas “desert” only has one, because who in their right mind would want a second helping of something so dusty, dry, and hot?  Mrs. […]
