So have bought a bike now. Not beautiful, but still. Old in a somewhat charming and somewhat annoying way. It looks like this, except it’s dirtier and rustier:
Anyway – it’s a much better way to get to know New York, than just going down through a hole in the ground, and then up from another. Would I get to see the riverside like the one below then? I don’t think so!
The photo is from my first bike ride here, on my way to class in the MFA program in Interaction Design. Oh, and while I still remember this: the chair of the program, Liz Danzico, took a photo of both 1st and 2nd year students a week ago – when we met for the very first time. So here you have most of my lovely classmates at the Graduate Student Reception.
