Back to Meatpacking

I dreamed I went back in time, to the Meatpacking District before it was "MePa," before it was a luxury shopping and partying destination. The buildings were all made of brick and covered in graffiti. I had my digital camera and became very excited to take pictures of everything.

There was more, but that's all I can remember. I often have this dream where I go back in time to an older New York City, armed with my digital camera, and I become very anxious, running around trying to get pictures of every detail.



  1. Let's linger over supper at Florent.

  2. Wandering the empty early '80s streets of Tribeca at night, having dinner at Le Zinc...I dream of the days when downtown was not a tourist destination and the restaurants were scattered among abandoned and day-use-only buildings like in a scavenger hunt.

  3. I've had my camera in dreams, but can never use it. There's always something wrong - the buttons don't work or it's missing a piece. Lots of anxiety in that dream.
