I'm Off For NYC

At SFO airport now, catching the 10 PM redeye to JFK, arriving 7 AM. I love to do it this way, arriving in the Great City at dawn. Just after crossing the Hudson, my pulse starts pounding. Now THIS is a city. I’m hopelessly in love with it. I can’t sleep even a bit on airplanes, but I don’t take naps, rather stay awake until bedtime that night, and, voila, I’m into east coast time.

   I’m going to the BEA big book convention (and exploring city with new camera, seeing friends, seeking adventure). Staying at hotel in the Village, old building, I’m excited by this.

   Any tips on NYC? Coffee, food, music, whatever?

    Reade Street pub always feels like a home from home to us

    Lloyd –

    Will you be doing any public appearances? I believe you have visited local independent book stores during BEA in the past. Would love to bring my collection of Shelter books for your sig.

    Hey Lloyd, check out Cafe Mogador on 8th st. It's a great place to go in the afternoon and get some food, read and drink a huge pot of tea.

    Enjoy NY!


  4. Check out the crazy Japanese food at Kenka on St Marks between 2nd + 3rd aves… terrific. I like the octopus balls at Otafuku, 220 E. 9th st.
