legos

As much as I have come to love Boston and all its Massholes, New York City is — whether it’s because I read the Times daily (sorry, Tim, I just can’t read the Globe!), or because my family is nearby (out beyond the red lego, above), or because the years I spent living in Manhattan just after college are indelible in their penury and excitement — the city I still know and, perhaps, love the best.

I miss little things, little things so brilliantly captured in this Times  piece today.

  1. The legos were, as you said, mind numbing, and I read the entire Times piece; thanks for the pictures.

  2. “Penury and excitement” – there is no better encapsulation of those heady, post-collegiate days.

    And I never could read the Globe, either. I’m also, I’m willing to bet, the only stop on the Times’ delivery route in San Diego.
