New York part 2

We spent the 2nd day in New York walking around Greenwich Village which I think was my favorite part of NYC

There seemed to be photo-worthy scenes everywhere.

A friend of mine recommended The Spotted Pig restaurant, which was a very funky place.

We scored a seat by the window and watched all the goings-on outside.

I had a roasted beet salad and Scott had a Cubano sandwich...oh and beer.  It was yummy.

Washington Square Park was a crazy place with lots of activity including this amazing jazz band.

Not sure  how this guy managed to get a grand piano into the middle of the park, but he was very talented.

We took the Staten Island Ferry to get a closer look at Lady Liberty.

I thought Wall Street and the Financial District were very imposing.

New World Trade Towers still under construction

We went to a matinee of "Memphis", it was excellent.

I loved the tiled signs at each subway station.

Did I tell you that my husband got asked for id.....twice?  I mean really....I'm 4 years younger than him.  No one asked for my id.  (Oh, and I must tell you....he had a hat on each time {wink}

Having supper at an Italian restaurant.

This cute waiter at the restaurant had only been in the USA for 11 days.  He came from Naples and his English was very limited, he was very charming.

This was a little Italian coffee shop where we went to have lattes and chocolate croissants.  The croissants were so amazing....I had to get 2 more to go.  Thankfully we walked a million miles on the weekend to make up for this.

I had to take a picture of these swings that were in Bryant Park.  I'm trying to convince Scott to make me one for our verandah.  Aren't they dreamy?

  1. This all looks so fun! The first pic reminds me of "You'e Got Mail". I didn't realize they were rebuilding the Twin Towers. I love beets and think that lattes & croissants from that cute bakery would be well worth lots of miles! You and your hubby are such a cute couple, how great that you got away together!
