I spent Thursday in the city puddle jumping and without planning to, having a very French experience. My favorite thing about NY, that I'm reminded of every time I go, is that from the outside Manhattan seems to be an over-consuming, vulnerable, neatly organized yet extremely messy metropolis of an island, but once I step out from Grand Central the city transforms. The notion of scale that fuels this perceptive transformation is why I like to walk. Conquering an urban environment by foot seems to makes it feel both grand and manageable.
