Do you know why they call it “The Catwalk?” The term is derived from the way models walk, which is similar to a cat. Meow, if you say so. It’s also the platform these show-stopping women (and men) walk on. In my case, I’m no professional, and my elevated platform was a cement walkway in one of the grittier corners of my neighborhood. But when a cat’s gotta walk, a cat’s gotta walk!
Hamilton Park, our JC neighborhood, is the perfect urban mix of charming and scruffy. Something I think you can’t miss from these pics. It reminds me of growing up in Greenwich Village in the 60s/70s or living in Brooklyn in the 80s/90s. Some streets are completely rehabbed, others sport vacant lots. On the weekends we love wandering around and discovering new shops, restaurants and more. And when we set off on one of our jaunts we could easily walk 3 or more miles. So…comfort is key. But not at the expense of having a little fashion fun.
