I have lived in Harlem for 10 years and although we may have soul food, amazing architecture and some great gospel music, we have something no other neighborhood in Manhattan has- Tumble Weave.
It can be found rolling down sidewalks, clogging up drains and skeeting down the subway stairs.
No matter how bad your day is, when a tumble weave twirls by with some glitter, old leaves or an eyelash thrown in, it's simply un-be-weavably amusing.

Olivia's Very First Tumble Spotting!
My dear, darling friend Olivia who hails from Europe (I can't say one country since she has lived in almost all of them) has been on a serious hunt for a tumble weave for years since I gave her the gift of weave knowledge. Last Sunday she finally found one in the East Village.
"I totally did a joy dance when I saw it!!!" she told me.
We are very proud of you cherie! You are that much closer to being a real New Yorker.
