A walk on the west side

    After the ballet rehearsal we found ourselves, or I found myself craving Croque Madame- off to Amelie we went. Afterwards we headed to the Equinox Printing House for a clean bathroom and on the way a quick stop at the chocolate shop Varsano’s. And you never […]


Saturday morning and we have no plan… Stay in the city, do a grocery run, its a beautiful day – maybe take a walk.  Well, somehow we both came up with Bethpage.  He decided because it was central on the island and we have done north and south, […]

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 […]
