The last month...

OK I know I said I would be good but to my credit - the alst month of work has been nuts! Now that I have some down time and things are coming to a leveling off I will be around more. : )

Last weekend Alex and I went down toan to the Festival of Ideas for the New City  - Street Fest.

"major new collaborative initiative in New York involving scores of Downtown organizations working together to harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore ideas that will shape it.'

It was such a great day to head down there and we go to visit some very interesting tents too. There weer areas where they were teaching kids to cook using all locally grown food... An area that was just about educating people on bike in the city,  areas on how to green your building and or roof... And an area tht kids could go and play with large foam shaped to really encouage using their hands and enforcing imaginations etc.

There was plans and designs for what the next stage of the subways would be... These were really great to read about and to see.

It was a wonderfull day that also brought with it amazing local eats from Brooklyn! ( Big fan! )
