Early Saturday morning I boarded Amtrak to NYC to spend the day with my grandson David.
He meet me in Penn Station and we immediately headed to one of his favorite cafes, French Roast on W. 11th street. We both had eggs Benedict and I can honestly say it was the best I ever had! The eggs were cooked to perfection.
In our cappuccinos, he got a leaf and I got a heart.
Next we strolled around the city heading toward the World Trade Center Memorial. I’ll be sharing that in another post.
The buildings were amazing.
Dave has taken classes on the history and architecture of the city, so he was a great tour guide, but I don’t remember the names of these buildings!
The arch at Washington Square commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington. I did remember that, it’s inscribed on the stone!
The opposite side has a fountain.
Another little park with a fountain, again I don’t remember the name, but this is where a tiny piece of paper flew in my mouth and grossed me out and Dave spilled his Starbuck’s drink all over his boots.
Roof top gardens were spotted here and there.
We saw many bikers riding in the crowded streets. I think they’re crazy!
I loved the look of these old buildings. Would you live here? Are you a city person.
Soho and Tribeca areas. As you can see, it was a gorgeous day!
No trip to NYC would be complete with a glimpse of the Empire State building.
We took a carriage ride around Central Park, rode the subway several times, strolled through China town and ended our day at a great little Italian restaurant. I took lots of pictures to share with you and we even saw a star! A real movie star! I got some pictures of that too which I’ll post soon.
It was a great day! Love ya Dave.
