I have found my new favorite place. I don't know if I want to tell you where it is, because then you may steal it... I discovered this little safe haven on the way to work last week. It's a little courtyard nestled in between two buildings between 48th and 49th. Woops, just gave it away! :) The rock wall is about 12 feet high and has a waterfall running down either side with a glass tube and bridge running through it. This morning I left for work 20 minutes early to make time to sit here and read my book for a bit. It was so relaxing and the sound of rushing water successfully masked the sound of busy NYC traffic. Start of a new morning tradition...? I think so!
