Over Memorial Day weekend this past May, I spent a few days in New York City. My husband was supposed to go with me, but couldn’t after all. I had to attend business meetings the following week and had already bought my ticket. Alas, there was nothing else to do except make the ultimate sacrifice and leave without him.
I spent the weekend walking everywhere. I walked a lot. I forgot my Fitbit so I don’t know how many steps but I walked for hours each day and it was hot. I meandered around SoHo, walked up and down Canal Street in Chinatown, past the Greenwich and West Villages, through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, then all the way to Columbus Circle and the Upper West Side. When I became really tired, I rode the subway. It was fun and exhausting. Here are snippets from my walks.
Cool window displays in Soho.
So much yarn, so little time.
Cooling off in Washington Square Park.
Walking past the Chrysler Building in search of yarn…
…but it was closed. 😞 I found out after I walked up the six flights (elevator wasn’t working). 😓
Nothing to make me feel better than a whole restaurant dedicated to meatballs on the Upper West Side.
Heading back to the Financial District, I walked past Gramercy Park and found this little gem in the East Village – Downtown Yarns.
Tiny and adorable with the sweetest staff.
Didn’t catch the address but I call this the “Jenga” Building.
Yarn bombing at PS 87 between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues.
Where else can one get warm cookies delivered to your door until 3 am?
Hanging out on Columbus Circle.
Yarn purchase from Downtown Yarns.
Next stop on the F Line – Bergen Street, Brooklyn.
