on to our friday in new york...
well, we began by having breakfast in the most beautiful park (and probably my most favourite place we visited), bryant park. we were so lucky that it was only a 2 minute walk from our hotel. i'll have to do a post just about this place. we took so many photos.
there are little kiosks in the park where you can buy food. i had the most delicious oatmeal with cinnamon butter, almonds, and dried fruit.
after breakky, we set off to explore the city with only one plan: to visit the m.o.m.a.
on the way there we saw.....
wonderful photography exhibits by atta kim and weegee
the nbc building (what a gem...amazing art deco interior!)
water fountains that looked like dandilions
the famous "love" sculpture
and some pretty cool window displays
we arrived at the m.o.m.a. and realized there was more than we could possibly see in a couple of hours. to ensure everyone saw what they wanted, michele and deutsch went their way and paul and i went ours. we saw some incredible art!
after a little rest in central park, we headed out to brooklyn to eat dinner at foodswings. the legend of faux buffalo wings was all the incentive we needed. and let me tell you, they did not disappoint!!
just looking at that picture, i can almost taste them again.
after dinner we walked around williamsburg. michele and i were lured into the mini minimarket where we found great jewellery, clothing, cards, and bric a brac by indie businesses. so sad that we got there just as they were closing and only had a few quick minutes to browse around. (probably good news for my wallet....) while we were in the shop, paul and deutsch found a bar a few doors down and stopped in for a beer. michele and i met up with them afterwards and we all ended up staying there well into the a.m. i think this photo pretty much says it all, folks. hee hee
needless to say, we didn't get to bed until 3am and got a bit of a late start the next day.
