Temporary Tourist – Part Two.
After visiting the Whitney and dragging Lauren to look at a couple of potential new apartments in the city, we had a lot of ground to cover on Sunday.
We slept in and all we wanted was a little bit of good brunch grub. We went to The Diner in Meatpacking. Lauren ordered Huevos Rancheros with orange juice and I had eggs, toast, bacon with a side of greens and a cup of Mud coffee. Chelsea Market was next on our list so we perused the shops and headed to the High Line. Thankfully there were not very many people out and about yet so we had a nice stroll along the railroad tracks/ art park/ public space.
After the High Line we traveled up to Columbus Circle. This is my favorite spot in the city. During the summer I like to go to Whole Foods, grab lunch and sit in Columbus Circle while people watching. Not to mention, the view from the atrium of the Time Warner Center makes you fall in love with New York time and time again.
After Columbus Circle we headed for a walk through Central Park – where there happened to be an adorable children’s Ice Skating Competition at the Wollman Rink. Maybe it’s because I’m from Florida where there is no such thing as snow [except for sno-cones] but I thought the little kids skating competition was the cutest thing ever.
Monday we rode the Staten Island Ferry, visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral and dined at Malatesta in the West Village. Thanks for visiting, Lauren! I kind of enjoyed being a tourist for the weekend!
CrossFit started this week [more on that in the near future].
