NYC weekend: first 24hrs (part 1)
Each year, I like to make a yearly refuge to NYC. this year i almost missed it. then airfare war came. i booked, bought and flew. i made my rounds and now i’m back.
First on the agenda was to catch the moma’s target free fridays. when we showed up, there was already a snake line along the building. they let people in fairly quick which of course funneled into a big crowd inside. okay by me, i’d rather use the $20 for food, anyway.
I’d love to have that giant lamp.
Then my camera died. sorry, no pics of the first evenings meal.
For dinner, we meet up with a bunch of friends for japanese bbq @ Yakuniku. ten of us grilled & drank for 3.5hrs! Not a bad way to end our first night in town.
Next morning, i saw a glimpse of the NY marathon runners on the N train on my way to chinatown.
Walked up broadway and shopped. actually my travel partner shopped till shop I almost dropped. She hadn’t been here since 9/11. In and out a few dozen stores, can make anyone tired & dizzy. So we stopped into miro café for a quick caffeine boost.
I like the woody walls & ceiling at miro café.
Isn’t it amazing what you can do in 24hrs?
