We had a wonderful time on our recent trip to NYC. A break from Chinese lessons is what we expected….but we our training was only reinforced by the many many people we heard speaking Chinese and also that we interacted with. Yep, our Chinese works (what little we have!). We loved being in the city, going to Broadway, eating like we had never eaten before, and spending some time sans children!
Really cool lounge at the Gramercy.
We ate breakfast on the terrace at Gramercy Park Hotel. Yummo!
Also at the Gramercy….a butterfly mosaic. Beautiful and intriguing!
A pretty spoon with a pretty image of a pretty spot in Manhattan (and a pretty good looking guy in the knife) at the Gramercy Terrace.pi
We walked from Gramercy Park to MOMA on Veterans’ Day and observed many groups preparing for the parade.
We walked by the famous NY Public Library.
Because it was Veterans’ Day, all the flags surrounding Rockefeller Plaza were the US flag…usually it is a flag from each US state.
Finally I was able to see Van Gogh’s Starry Night in person at MOMA! I had missed it when it was on view at The High Museum (Atlanta) years ago. Incredible in person!
My hubby took in The Scream by Edvard Munch.
We loved this Woman in Japanese Robe by Water by Matisse.
Is he a part of the art, or is a part of him? Although pretty straightforward, we talked about this piece of “art” long after he stepped into it.
My cousin took this snapshot – we should have had him in there with us! Near the subway entrance near Chelsea.
The High Line was a great place for a stroll on a perfect evening!
A great way to experience the city – The High Line.
Taking a break in Central Park.
L.O.V.E. We should all do more of this. By Robert Indiana on 6th Ave.
Radio City Music Hall at Night. We got this great picture from the seat of our Pedicab/Rickshaw.
Here I am posing with our Pedicab driver/peddeler. What a way to travel! I suppose I will have another opportunity to go this way in China!
