This is my neighborhood.

Send me a photo of what your part of the world looks like.

This is White Plains, New York. You can see a little bit of my building on the far right edge of this photo. We live on the 18th floor. We can see a little bit of the New York City skyline, trains, lots of trees, the Bronx River Parkway, and usually about 8 planes over JFK and LaGuardia. We park our cars underground. I can walk to Macy's, Target, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble Booksellers, and the train station for NYC. It's a nice place to live. We've been here for 2 years.

I'm guessing the view outside your door is a little different. Show us!

Oh Wow Karen. I never dreamed that White Plains has grown so much. I lived in NYC many, many years ago, but the outskirts always seemed like mostly brownstones. Thanks for sharing the picture.

Wow a busy place. I was in NYC one time a long long time ago. I can't get over the very tall buildings there. It is nice to be able to walk to all those places.

Hi Karen
Just found you through a link; my son lives in Dobbs Ferry and works in White Plains at a college. I have been up that way in quick succession a few years back. Comparing White Plains (where a dear uncle had a hearing aid business for many years) with the bucolic Dobbs Ferry is always amazing.
Your work is interesting! Will be checking out the selvedge stuff soon.
Always blessed,
Blondie
