|THE WORLD OF NANCY KRULIK|
There is no better time to be a New Yorker than the summer. (Okay, so maybe living in an apartment is great in the winter because you never have to shovel. And in the fall the leaves in Central Park are breathtaking. And spring is gorgeous wherever you are. But I love summer.) The great thing about New York in the summer is that it's empty. No really. Empty. All those restaurants you have to make reservations at months in advance the rest of the year have tables just waiting for you to wander in to. The weekend classes t the gym have plenty of room, and Josie and I can spend hours sitting on the grass in the park listening to guitarists and jazz bands who will play great tunes for the fee of whatever you will drop in their hat.Sure it's hot here, but there's the Hudson River (where you can rent a kayak or have outdoor barbecue near the boat basin) to cool you off. And outside at Lincoln Center there's free dancing to live music in the evenings. If you ask me, the song should never have been called Autumn in New York. Because it's most definitely summer in New York for me!
