Is Anyone Here In New York?

From the original description of this "Ning" (as Fabrice is so fond of calling it), I understood that this was a place where Francophones and Francophiles based in New York or interested in New York could gather online.

Today, the two biggest headlines that concern New Yorkers are Bloomberg's election to a third term and the Yankees chance at the World Championship.

Why is there apparently no discussion of either subject here?

A mon avis, si vous… Continue

Pour tout savoir sur New York par un journaliste passionné

On décide d’y aller un jour. Sans raison apparente, sans but réel, sans atome crochu particulier pour ce lieu. Et puis on part. Une fois là bas, on visite, on flâne, on respire ce lieu. Et il faut bien revenir. Mais dès le retour, un manque se fait ressentir. Un manque qui va s’accentuer jour après jour. Jusqu’à devenir une obsession : il faut qu’on y retourne…. Absolument !

Cette sensation fut la mienne en 2005. Depuis elle perdure, entre chaque voyage là-bas. Cette ville, c’est NEW YORK… Continue

Amuse-Bouche No. 16: Say it with flowers, but don’t give a friend chrysanthèmes!

Amuse-Bouche No. 16: Say It with Flowers

by Julia Frey

But don’t give a friend chrysanthèmes !

“Comme c’est bizarre,” says Colombine, “every year for la fête des mères (Mother’s Day: in France, the last Sunday in May) ma belle-mère (my mother-in law) gives me a cactus!”

“C’est peut-être symbolique,” I answer. The arid cactus, with its prickly defense system, makes me craindre le pire (fear the… Continue

Spooky you, spooky me, spooky us

One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year.
