April showers brought May flowers… and more showers. So, when there were a couple of consecutive days of actual sunshine last week, I was certain to take advantage of them. When the weather warms up, habitually angry city dwellers suddenly become jovial, relaxed, and if you look very closely, you may even see some of them smiling. The West Village is prime for people watching. Restaurants expand their dining rooms out onto the sidewalks and seats outdoors become prime real estate. Spring in New York reminds us all why we suffer through bitter cold, slushy streets, and near hypothermia. It gives us just enough to fall back in love before cursing it again during sweltering summer months.
