I am jazzed* about spending four days en femme in New York City!
My workshop is in the Chelsea section of NYC and I plan to stay at a hotel within a short walking distance of the workshop.
Chelsea seems to be a perfect choice for a T-girl. According to Wikipedia, "Chelsea is a melting pot of cultures. Above 23rd Street, by the Hudson River, the neighborhood is post-industrial, featuring the newly-hip High Line that follows the river all through Chelsea. Eighth Avenue is a center for LGBT-oriented shopping and dining, and from 20th to 22nd street between Ninth and Tenth avenue, mid-nineteenth century brick and brownstone townhouses are still occupied, a few even restored to single family use.
"Since the mid-1990s, Chelsea has become a center of the New York art scene, as art galleries moved there from SoHo."
This is very exciting!
Between now and then, I have to decide what to bring to wear. I figure something casual for the daytime and something dressier for the evenings. Maybe two outfits each that I can mix and match to create eight outfits. Maybe I will even have to buy something new. What a dilemma!!!
I came across an interesting story about another girl's adventures in New York City. I hope my four days in NYC are as half as good as her six days there!
Did I mention how jazzed I am about the prospects of this trip?
* In all my life, I never used the word "jazzed" until now. I think I needed something to kick me out of the winter doldrums and this must be it!
