The final installment of my Best of 2011 covers late Autumn in November 2011 till mid-winter in January 2012.
During this atypically warm Winter season, I stayed mostly in New York, checking out art exhibitions in the major museums and landmarks, searching for beauty in my immediate neighborhood of South Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and starting my blog projects Dream Of A City and 100 Ways To See A Street.
Hopping over to London and Berlin one last time to say farewell and to bring closure to one chapter of my life, I return to New York to find that I had missed the single day of snowfall.
To the coming of Spring, and another eventful year!
