nighttime in the city...

 you'd never know it by the stretch of freezing cold days we've had thus far in march, but man, february's weather was incredible! we had so many beautiful sunsets, days in the 60's (and 70's!), and even evenings outdoors. we played on the roof a bit, had a few double dates with friends, and a couple awesome girls nights...
 a few picnics on the roof, enjoying that insane space while it's ours...
 dusk walks with a light jacket (and some with no jacket- hullo!).

also, my friend jenn's birthday party, which was basically a girl gab night on the 230 fifth rooftop. THAT VIEW!!!! between the heated igloos, crazy lights, and that 360 view- it was perfection. also, i had a direct shot of mike's office building... ;) shiny!
 a perfectly gorgeous baby shower (to which i left with a massssssive balloon, and my friends actually rode the same subway car with me as i carried that darn balloon all the way home).

also, there was a fire just above jacob's pickles- it basically gutted the buildings, and left a ton of people homeless. the shops and restaurants were forced to close (some permanently), which is really sad. this little neighborhood of ours is so special, and it was shocking to watch a piece of it literally go up in flames. we watched from our roof, and from the ground as hundreds of firefighters broke windows, climbed ladders, and worked hard to put out the fire. the aftermath that followed was sad- apartments emptied onto the streets, and the smell of burning that still lingers...

speaking of pickles, ironically the night after the fire we had dinner with friends at maison pickle, the new brother restaurant of jacob's pickles. the french dip was awesome. the plates, however, were so big we all held half of them in our hands as we ate:) 
those february nights gave me a glimpse into what's to come- summer nights! and maybe spring nights again if we are lucky? maybe? maybe!? ;)
