Confession: I have major outdoor space envy. As Curbed recently pointed out, “Private outdoor space is an intoxicating amenity—in fact, it made this Times writer give up an apartment twice the size of his current one in order to possess a 10-by-40-foot patch of grass.” I would do the same in a heartbeat. It’s funny that we all wish we had this little concrete jungle, where we could stand single file facing the BQE. I guess it’s the one thing we all left behind, privacy and greenery.

This flowering tree sprung up in my favorite restaurant’s garden. I ate under it tonight. I like how in New York these secret spaces become like your own backyard.
