Woke up feeling very lazy and not at all motivated to get out so I went back to sleep for another hour or so, just because I could.
|Late Afternoon in Times Square|
It was the first time in weeks I had done that because I had been always up for bag pulls or such limited time to see somewhere so I didn’t sleep in apart from the days at the B&B.

So awake and refreshed so I unpacked and put everything in the drawers and cupboards so I could literally live like a human. So I took my bottle of water and went for a walk around Jacqueline Onassis reservoir only wishing I had brought my camera but it was kind of nice just to enjoy.
Then headed back to the apartment and grabbed the little trolley and went for a walk to find the Laundromat by this stage I was starving but given that I was dragging my washing through Harlem I decided I would turn around and go the other way then find somewhere when my washing was going through. So I waited until I found the Laundromat, put the washing on and investigated some of NYC famous delis and got myself some food because by then I could eat a horse.
Settled in to do the washing and did some blog writing and emails while I was at the Laundromat. I have to say while the washers are quick you have to watch the dryers and that is where the price goes up and up so I will keep an eye on that for next time.
But It was a real experience in being one of NYC Laundromat and it is an awesome place to people watch. Even made a friend with a gal who lived up near 59th St but works up this way and it was so cool to be sitting there chatting and getting to know each other.

I took myself back to the apartment through the beautiful brownstone streets and the awesome fall colours falling around me. I officially fell in love with NYC at that moment. I really wished I had my camera with me.

So I learnt that if I got the first one I could walk straight out to the stairs and walk home in like 3 mins. I felt perfectly safe and carefree in my hood. I love my piece of New York heaven! I fell asleep that night listening to the noises of the big city smiling because it was finally real.
