Mad Hatters NYC - What's This All About?

As we embark on a new year, we thought we'd remind everyone (and ourselves!) why we do this.

This is a love story. A story in which a man and a woman fall in love…with a city. But not just any city. The City. We’re often asked what it is, exactly, that engenders such extreme devotion. We might tell you that it represents the best and worst, the heart and bowels, the unvarnished truth about humanity every minute of every hour of every day, and that there is something beautiful and ugly, exhilarating and stifling, about it all at the same time. But that description, honest as it is, falls short. We cannot simply tell you. We must do our best to show you, and that’s precisely what we’ve set out to do here.

Thank you for joining us on our adventures!

Looks and Books: Why You Should Visit the Jefferson Market Library

The West Village is as picturesque a neighborhood as one can imagine, with tree-lined streets, dreamy townhouses and cute cafes. The Jefferson Market Library’s beautiful Victorian Gothic facade fits right in. We’ve passed it a million times, admiring its beauty in passing, but never really taking note. But the Jefferson Market Library is a structure that’s rich with history (including some salacious bits!), and it tells a tale of reinvention that seems perfectly at home in New York City.

Cider House Rules: Apple Picking Near The Big Apple

Nothing embodies the seasonal changing of the guard from Summer to Fall quite like going apple picking. With our obvious love for all things fall and all things food, this sits squarely in our wheelhouse. There are farms that offer a wide range of produce and enough activities to provide a full day of family entertainment. And there are orchards that offer a no-frills, day-on-the-farm, pick-your-own experience. Here are two great options located in the charming town of Chester, New Jersey. Chester is just a little over an hour drive from New York City, which makes it ideal for a day trip. Go forth and celebrate fall!

Spirited Away: A Visit to Green-Wood Cemetery

You know how some people celebrate their Birthday Month? We celebrate Halloween Month. It’s our favorite holiday, hands down. I’m a horror movie aficionado, and Lynn’s a huge costume buff. (She hasn’t really delved into that for herself as much as she’d like, believe me, but she adores watching other people do it really, really well.) We’re always excited to attend fall favorites like Brew in the Zoo, The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze, and the Halloween Dog Parade. So when our friend and fellow blogger Lauren of Girl in Gotham City asked if we’d like to hang out at Green-Wood, we couldn’t say yes fast enough. It’s long been on our list of things to do. So, let Halloween Month commence!

A Marriage Made in Heaven: The Best Street Art and Street Food in Austin

If character is a collection of distinct qualities, Austin has character in spades. And one of the qualities we particularly loved in our recent visit to this vibrant Texas city was its embarrassing wealth of art. While there were incredible museums and parks, we are firm believers that some of the most important art can be found in public spaces.
