But then, slowly, New York begins to be nice again. The apologies begin flowing with the first crocuses. A month after those first blooms and I am completely smitten again. Everyone is happy, the trees are heavy with green leaves, the breeze is perfectly gentle. And I think, "How could I even imagine leaving such a perfect city?!"
Oh, New York, I love you!
One of my favorite things I love about New York City is just hanging out, wandering, and finding new treasures. Last Saturday, that's just what we did. Although, I didn't photograph all the food we ate. Eating delicious food is one of the best things to do in NYC on a beautiful Saturday.
|Street fairs are everywhere! This was a community garden fundraiser in Tribeca. Notice the young gals on stilts in the background.|
|The Balloon Saloon|
|Our destination: The Hester Street Fair in the LES. Pretty awesome & pretty packed full of people. If you go, I recommend you go early or late (not around a meal time).|
|Delicious food at the fair!|
|Beautiful church on Grand St (I think). Near Little Italy.|
|Walk along the beautiful Hudson River.|
|We ended the day with a carousel ride on the Hudson. It's a favorite place of ours.|
**If you go to the Hester Street Fair, please take note that Doughnut Plant is just around the corner.
