90 Park Ave Walk

Coming down for lunch to meet a friend I left an hour to get here. I didn’t plot my route, just wandered in the direction. What I didn’t think of is that to get from 46th to 40th you walk through the Helmsley Building then through Met Life Building then through Grand Central station In […]

Macy’s Flower Show

Every year macy’s on 34th street decorates its windows and main floor with over the top flower displays. This year it felt a bit less like flowers than like a themed decorative display, but it was still fun to see. As usual it was crowded, we went after work and i learned to use a parking […]

CLAUDETTE

24 Fifth Avenue at 10th Street.  Could be a favorite for sure.  A bit pricey and we skipped the dessert but really a great place to be.  Everything was good, including the free fried cauliflower they gave us because the kitchen had a delay.  We order the special of the day, the Mushrooms with an order […]

Works/Process

As if we hadn’t done enough walking we found ourselves with tickets to works/process at the Guggenheim so off we trudged.  By the end off the day I had 17,658 steps clocked on my iPhone ( approximately).  As usual on the way we saw this and that, here are some photos of things I liked. […]

China Chalet

The walk today:Our place for dim sum… along the river where we met Jill A. Digging in the dirt then up York to 79th , towards the end of YORK we found ourselves passing many restaurants we think we may want to return to then up 79 to China Chalet. And here we are loving […]

AGATA & VALENTINA

Perhaps I will never cook again. At 1st and 79th Streets a market after my own heart. Hopefully the food is good UPDATE: when i did finally make the trip to Agata I wasn’t s thrilled as Ihad hoped I would be. A dirty fish smell pervaded the place, the selections weren’t as varied as […]

Walk to East River Roundabout

Back in January we walked down to the East River, today we are repeating the walk to the East River Roundabout.  It was breezy and cold but so nice to be out.  Along the river we ran into a woman gardening and I did finally reach out and offer to volunteer, we will see what […]

Maybe Good Sams is worthwhile

As i look towards our next outing to Uncle G’s in Jersey I played around on good Sams trip planner and found a really nice itinerary added to the end… I’ve copied it here. I like the details of the stops. Sadly, it didn’t know uncle Giuseppes.. does it not have markets? no, it does […]

Food Market

1200 Lex  b/w 81 & 82.  Food Passion.  Great veggies and fried chicken and some very good looking desserts.

I dont remember reading any of J D Salingers books, and now I definitely want to. I loved reading this happy story of a young girl working in publishing. I recommend My Salinger Year
