What do you like to do in the fall?

Taking long walks with my wife, because the weather starts to change and the leaves start to change.

What’s your best memory from this summer?

My daughter turned 15. And going to my wife’s school, because she is in cooking school. She cooked a few meals for me and she is really good.

What do you like to do most in the fall?

I like to go to parks and the museums and I like shopping Downtown.

What was the highlight of your summer?

I moved to Brooklyn, so it was sort of a while moving and getting set up there. Just spending time with friends and going to the beach.

Definitely summer, because I hate the cold, absolutely.

What do you enjoy doing in the fall?

Going to Battery Park, because it is right at the water; you can just go there have a coffee and sit by the water.

What did you do that was fun this summer?

My mom came to visit from Ohio, so we went to a Yankees game and we went to a play and did a lot of stuff.

What season do you prefer?

Definitely fall. I like the leaves changing, I like the weather and my birthday is in fall.


Lives in Village, 39


What do you like to do in the fall?

To go to all the lounges and clubs. There is a nice place on Ludlow St. where I like to go — the crowd is great, very sexy, very nice, very dark!

What’s your best memory from this summer?

The highlight of my summer had to be going on a moonlight cruise from Chelsea Piers — smooth jazz, very nice.

Which season is your favorite?

Fall, because I hate the winter, it’s way too cold. In the summer, it’s way too hot. And in the fall everybody can look pretty and dress up comfortable.
