The year in cities 2009

For the fifth year in a row I'm chronicling in this space the cities where I spent time in the past year. Per Jason Kottke's rules only overnights are listed; repeat visits are denoted with an asterisk. I've also put a dagger next to cities that I've visited in years past--to date, I only starred cities where I stayed twice in the same year.

New York, NY *† (home base)
Miami Beach, FL †
Puerto Moreles, Mexico
Livingston, NJ *†
New City, NY *†
Arlington, VA *
Boston, MA
Gloucester, MA
Madison, WI *
Hawley, PA
Edgartown, MA †
West Tisbury, MA
Milwaukee, WI
Chicago, IL †
Palm Beach Gardens, FL †

Interestingly, despite many trips to Massachusetts, I don't recall having specifically stayed overnight in Gloucester or Boston before this year. And the rest of those daggers suggest I'm quite the creature of habit.
