Diving into Budapest (Blue Wings, 10/2011)

DIVING INTO THE EIGHTH. “Up and coming? The Eighth?” Up until a few years ago, the average Budapester would have described this raffish, pie-shaped district on the eastern side of the bifurcated Hungarian capital as anything but. Now, thanks to an infusion of imagination and investment, and a healthy dose of Hungarian coffee, the eighth, which is also the site of two of the city’s greatest musea, is popping with new cafes, boutique hotels and uber cool shops, while managing to retain its late 19th century feel. Dive into my newest favorite city with me in this feature about this hotsy-totsy Hungarian hood—the first full-length feature about the 8th published anywhere in the palacsinta-noshing world (and you can take that to the bank)—I published in the October issue of Blue Wings, the fine magazine of Finnair, my favorite airline. See you at the Budapest Jazz Club!
