spring weekend in New York
Once again, Dick and I enjoyed a fantastic trip with our friends, Mike and Christina. This time we spent a long weekend in New York. Lots of walking and some amazing food made for a delicious and much needed break from the normal routine. Mike and Christina are the best travel companions you could ask for – we all get along great, and the two of them always do a ton of research on the best places to go.
Outside Trinity Church in Manhattan
Delicious break at the Blue Bottle Coffee in Chelsea
Ever since I knew there was an installation of this LOVE sculpture in New York (based on Robert Indiana’s original design in 1958) I’ve wanted to see it. Turns out it was only a few blocks from the hotel.
My first time seeing Grand Central Station (aside from the movies)
Mike in front of the Manhattan Bridge (the Brooklyn Bridge is reflected in his glasses)
a short walk on the High Line
The view from the hotel bar
Just outside the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History
