The New York Diaries #7

My seventh and last day in New York was spent exploring the Upper West Side – I had an idea of it being a really interesting part of town from the movie You’ve Got Mail which is mostly set there, and had been really excited to see it! First stop: breakfast at Sarabeth’s. The most delicious pancakes I have ever tasted, and such a nice, cosy restaurant. If you’re in the area, do check it out! Then it was off to Zabar’s, one of the most famous grocery stores in NYC – it is an institution as it’s been there…

The New York Diaries #6

Walking along the Brooklyn Bridge and exploring Brooklyn/Williamsburg was the original plan for day 6 – but before I headed to the other side of the river, I made a quick stop for breakfast at Egg Shop, which was recommended in Kate’s post.

I spent a lot of time in the Brooklyn Bridge Park just sitting down…

The New York Diares #4

My fourth day in NYC was lovely and sunny, and so I walked to the Highline, and walked through it down to Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. The walk was great and the Highline is such an unusual, cool space! I then went to Chelsea Market, explored for a bit and had a delicious taco for lunch – the market is absolutely incredible, well worth a visit.  It was then time to head downtown to visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum – like a good part of the world I remember that day all too vividly and wanted to pay…
