HURRICANE WINDS hit my Terrace at 5pm

And then horrendous rains poured down………..threatening the scaffolds which had not been weighted down.

My pots….trees and flowers were tossed about………DAMN!

COCKTAILS on the Terrace • NY Athletic club

The location of the NY ATHLETIC CLUB is so convenient……just off Fifth Avenue and a block from Central Park.

The rooftop terrace is……fun….sun….and cocktails………or tea.

It’s fun to see my apartment  there in the tower in the distance……..from one terrace to another.

Tid-bits are served……….blue cheese bruschetta with mango for starters.

CAKEBREAD CELLARS………….ordered that just because the name is so amusing.

 

 

 

Ladies Hat Luncheon in Central Park

The Central Park Conservancy hosts the annual HAT PARTY  which raised $4 million this year.

My friend Molly.……in the white dress and the stunning white hat…….met her friends in the garden for a fun luncheon.

The tables cost $100,000  and the 1200 guests show off their most fabulous hats.

Stephanie March wore a hat designed by Lock & Co Hatters.…..a favorite of Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge.

Lunch at JAMS

JAMS is in the lobby of the #1 Hotel.  Great location.  A few steps off 5th avenue and just one short block to Central park…………also, my dentist has a suite in the penthouse…..just in case you need a root canal.

The rooms tend to be a bit small……….but you get a view into Central Park from the upper rooms.

Barn wood ceiling………..tiny ledge for a writing desk………..and $500 a night……..bump that up to $600 with service and tax.

BUT…………you get that partial view……..

 

That’s Dr. B Ziten and Dr. D. Silver there at the window.

 

The interior of the restaurant…..very smart….very contemporary and very uncomfortable chairs and stools.

This was the RESTAURANT WEEK SPECIAL.……..tomato soup………one half chicken………arancini………..chocolate pudd and a completely tasteless coconut cake.

All this for $100 and wine and tax and tip is extra.

The kitchen is “OPEN VIEW” and the staff works their b _ _ _ off to get the food out quickly…..the restaurant fills up fast…….then the noise level is deafening.  I would suggest you book a table for 2pm.  Will I go back?  YES…..and I will order the hamburger with fries.
