for now, i just have a few things to say. if you're short on time, please read #3!
1) i found housing! i got accepted to the i-house, but then decided my money would be better spent experiencing new york so i'll be renting an apartment for june. tonight i found out things might still be a bit iffy, so let's keep our fingers crossed!
2) i'm sad i won't be able to take the awesome rebel xsi with its wonderful lens that i've grown to love so much, since it's my work's camera, but i will be taking my holga! today i bought 4 rolls of various holga film. we'll see if miss holga decides to give me some good shots this trip. i also pray that my point-and-shoot camera lasts...it's been dying for some time. i'll try to sketchbook what i can't photograph.
3) most important: i need your help. if you have any advice about new york, including places to go/visit (big places, little places, restaurants, shops, parks, fun niches that no one pays attention to, etc), please let me know! also, if you have any words of advice (i've heard walking around at night is not so good, to get a metro pass, etc) let me know as well. also, if there's something you think i should attend or do while i'm there, even holga or camera tips, or just anything else, feel free to inform me!
[above left: map of NY to carry around and thereby orient self, above right: best advice yet. it makes sense to me...trust me.]
don't be scared; please leave a comment below, so i can have all my NY advice in one place! i'll not be there for long, so i really want to maximize the time i have.
thank you! i'll blog a few more times before i go. i'm off for an adventure for sure.
