    thickening not necessary, it was fine. If anything, it needed some pasta water to loosen it up and help it coat the noodles.

    this Sunday, the wife and I rented a car and drove into Westchester for apple picking. The weather was perfect and the foliage was close to peak. After that, we drove 20 minute south and west to Stone Barns where we picked up some vegetables and meat at the market. Then another 20 minutes to Arthur Ave. All reasons why NY does not suck. We hit a few minutes of traffic in thie Bronx, but it wasn't bad. The roads in Westchester were all quite nice, especially the more north you went. The roads in the Bronx, notably near the 3rd ave bridge, were beyond awful.

    after about 4mths living in Connecticut, I can honestly say that I don't miss Brooklyn as much as I thought I would. As long as you're within an hour driving into the city everything's great.

    what I really love is when you drive in from a long road trip/vacation getting to your house isn't as stressful/cumbersome.

    before driving in from Maine/roadtrip I'd finally get to the whitestone bridge, and remember that there's a good 30min before dealing with LIE, BQE, Queeens highways then Brooklyn (even at weird 1am times can be traffic) because of all the stop signs/lights/no right turns. Then sometimes there's a big accident and you have to really start figuring out how to get home by driving all the way through queens back streets.

    They used those nets to stop a skateboard mob in my neighborhood a few weeks ago. I missed the fun, but did see a few people in cuffs when I got there.
    On an another topic, this: http://www.buzzfeed.com/copyranter/20-things-new-yorkers-older-than-40-have-experienced

    I score about a 15+ Never stayed in the Chelsea and always knew people in Williamsburg (if you count Hasidim rather than hipsters). Also never went to Billy's. My first mugging was in Washington Square Park - I was 11 or 12, had $1 and gave it up.

    skateboarders always piss me off. They take up so much space on the sidewalk just to screw up their fucking tricks. I'm always worried that they're inevitably going to screw up (they will) and their board will come flying into my shins.

    granted, I'd rather deal with skateboarders than motorcycle people.

    As I was reading, was thinking this as well.
