Town so Nice they Named it Twice

 New York,  New York.   I took a one day trip last week to NYC.
I took an early train with Mr. Fun who goes to the office about once a week.  I look like "take your munchkin to work day".   We come from the boonies of CT and the train fills up more as we get closer.
Does your starbucks sound like this first thing in the morning?  Are we in a club?  They shout the names through their masks and you can not hear them. lololol
The Plaza outside his building was beautiful.
First Stop:  Moma  ( I really wanted to go to the Met but they are closed on Tues & Weds).

Favorite Paintings of the Day.
I took myself to lunch on the 6th floor terrace.  I had a little sparrow for a friend.
 
Next Up:  Central Park Zoo  
I watched the famous Delacroix Clock with dancing animals.  I've always loved this famous clock.
Beautiful flowers in the zoo.
I strolled through Central Park - past The Mall Literary Walk.
I visited the Lincoln Center Folk Art Museum Gallery.  On display:  Weathervanes.
Beautiful Flowers at Lincoln Center.
I met Rich for dinner at one of our upper west side favorites, Fiorello's.
Mmmmmm delicious after 9 miles of walking!
Grand Central Station Celestial Ceiling.   Off for home on the choo choo again.
Thanks for visiting New York, New York with me!  
I hope you are getting out and about and staying safe and well.

  2. I cannot believe you had a sparrow visit you for lunch. Did your Mom love NY too? So special. Thanks for the tour. Glad you had fun.

  4. I was born in NYC and lived there until I was about 13. There is nothing to compare to NYC. We lived close to Central Park and I loved walking there. Thank you for sharing a little bit of memory with me.

  6. What a delightful day, Barb. I thoroughly enjoyed tagging along--the art, the flowers, the birds, the clock, the weathervanes, the GCS ceiling. I have never been to NYC, though my son lived there for a time (and loved it). And 9 miles of walking--good for you! Am currently in a walking boot and can't even walk a mile a day!

  7. Sounds like a fun filled day! I would have loved to tag along in person rather than just in pictures! Great weather too.

  9. Looks like you had a wonderful day! That fish reminds me of the one in Cherie Payne's Sweet Land of Liberty quilt. I always wondered why she put a fish in it. Now I know, it's a weathervane. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Thanks for sharing your fun day in NY! I've been to NY many, many, many times over the years and actually lived there for a few weeks while I did a clinical rotation at St. Vincents Hospital in Greenwich Village when I was in med school. Our son lives in Brooklyn so we try to get there regularly. I LOVE visiting NY! We often eat at Fiorellos if we are attending a concert at Lincoln Center. Now I'm itching to go again soon!!!

  11. Wow what a busy day you had, and I'm not surprised you walked 9 miles. You certainly did your daily steps for the day! Lol! Love the Delacroix Clock, and the flowers. All in all a lovely day out. Was that a Martini you had at dinner? I have never tried one, I'm a wine girl. :))

  14. Beautiful visit. I am so glad you had a great time. I just told my husband last week that I wanted to go to NYC. Thanks for sharing your photos.

  15. What a fun day! I bet Rich enjoyed the company on the ride. We loved our trip to NYC in June. I've gone back several times and scrolled through our photos we took. Everyone needs to go at least once in a lifetime. How fortunate you are to be close enough to get there easy.

  25. Well thank you for taking us along! You sure did accomplish a lot in one day by yourself. I'm from western New York State, but I've never been to NYC and I've never heard of that clock. I enjoyed the video.

  26. Hey Barb, thanks for including us in your NY day trip! Your photos are wonderful. I like the ones where you are peeking in from the side, especially the ones including Frida. Such a wonderful rich getaway, and you didn’t even have to drive!
