new york city, maryland, and the perfect sandwich

Last weekend, after watching the Women’s FIFA World Cup loss at a bar in Chelsea (no, I don’t want to talk about it…), I decided it was time to finally check out the new section of The Highline.

Pictured above is the Chelsea Market, a great market that’s right by The Highline.  It’s full of great shops and restaurants, and a perfect break from the heat.

A few years ago Joel Sternfeld released a book of gorgeous photographs that featured The Highline before most New Yorkers even knew what was up there.  It has since become a great place to enjoy a new and different perspective of the city.  The park puts you on an interesting plane; you are level with some apartments and other buildings, but still able to look down upon the street below.  It’s always exciting to see the city from a new angle.  Here are a few of Sternfeld’s pieces.

How did all you New Yorkers survive the heat this weekend? To escape the record breaking temperatures we were having here, I jumped in a car with a few friends and went down to Maryland. Our friend has a house right on the Chesapeake Bay, where we enjoyed the central air, her two cats, and being on the water.

In other news, our friend Kylie just launched her new blog The Purplest House. This is her story as she writes it, “Hello! My name is Kylie, I’m a recent graduate from Sarah Lawrence College where I studied acting, writing, and Liberal Arts miscellanea. I’m interested in good food, pretty things, shiny toys that make tinkling sounds, and furry creatures. I consider “never leave home without a book” to be one of my core, fundamental human values. This blog is meant to be a collection of all the aforementioned interests, as well as a chronicle of my long journey to the mythical (for now) Purplest House.

Look at her perfect summer sandwich.
