The last six months, starting with Hurricane Sandy, have been nothing but dark and dank freezing temperatures. Then in one 24 hour period, the temps are 20+ degrees higher and it’s in the 70’s. Can we please experience a little transition period for godssakes?? I had to quickly dust off my flip flops and head straight to the nail shop for an emergency pedicure. But the biggest thing the warmth brought was the unbelievable mood shift taking place amongst my fellow city folk. The rollerblades are out, the smiles are on and the tourists eating at the Times Square Applebee’s aren’t making me angry.
Parked in the slot usually saved for the weekly Carnival cruise ship was this small wonder of a yacht, the Eclipse. Turns out, this skyscraper on the ocean (and largest yacht in the world) belongs to Roman Abramovich, billionaire boyfriend to Russian socialite and “art dealer” Dasha Zhukova. She’s quite pregnant now and rumor has it they want the child born on US soil, or water that is. Whatever, I’m just freaking out how it’s NOT dwarfed by the aircraft carrier to the left!
