Upper West Side, Midtown, East Village, Downtown Brooklyn
I ran from Lincoln Center home! My husband and I went to a New York City Ballet matinee and he took my street clothes for me. What a perfect day!
Running in midtown is like biking in midtown, lots of near misses, lots of stopping and starting. I spent a lot of time on Second Avenue and I got a chance to zone out and run in a straight line. I only get that funny floating feeling (not unlike looking at a magic eye picture) is hard to get in Brooklyn or anywhere less predictable. Even though I moved to Brooklyn in 2000 and before that I only lived in Manhattan for two years I still get lost or at least disoriented in Brooklyn. In Manhattan, with its long avenues and easy grid I can go on autopilot.
