Back to the NYC Mother-Daughter trip of a lifetime.
I gave you a break in case you overdosed on buildings?
Saturday was day 4 and we started at MOMA!
six floors of galleries of art ...
installations, multi-media, film
& art ...
and more art!
We saw it all ...
& did some damage at the MOMA gift store.
Then a cab to SOHO!
Brunch, sightseeing and shopping ...
I love graffiti & street art ...
and architecture ...
Cheryl is a huge Prince fan,
note the shirt,
so we had to get a picture
on Prince Street in Soho.
And, we were in Little Italy for the ...
89th Annual Feast of San Gennaro, noted as
NYC's oldest, biggest & best religious street festival.
Streets closed for food booths, vendors, people & dogs!
A walking marathon, loving the buildings but
WW said this Mom hit a wall, so parked us at a cafe for sorbet.
More buildings, walking & shopping ...
We went in this terrific upscale antique store ...
I fell in love with the huge & very worn carnival game,
the 5 foot wide, $45,000 chandelier was not bad either.
The grouchy owner needed a vacation. More walking.
While on our walk to a different restaurant,
we passed Dos Caminos and voted for Mexican food.
Smart move. Great choice & so ready to sit.
A delicious & leisurely meal in Soho.
We stopped at the famous Magnolia Bakery for extra calories!
Back in our hotel rooms for the evening ...
|Hilton Midtown Manhattan|
we learned of the nearby Chelsea bombing.
The NYC mayor, fire & police chiefs were impressive
on tv, on top of the situation, and such pros.
We all received texts & e-mails checking on us.
Readying for our last day of this magical trip on Sunday.
And still ...
A smile for Tuesday ...
