Let it Snow…..Let it Snow….LET IT SNOW

New York City is bracing for a “white-out”……….and we love it.  Ice skating at the rink in Rockefeller Center………..or just a stroll in Central Park.  Bring it on!

SPIDERMAN sighting today on Columbus Avenue

I have no idea why we was sitting on the traffic light…..but there he was….SPIDERMAN.

DOUGHNUT PLANT nyc

If you are in or near the CHELSEA HOTEL…………the DOUGHNUT PLANT in the lobby will treat you to celestial delights…..ie,  DOUGHNUTS!

You may need more than one…….maybe the creme brulee…….. or the

tres leches.

$50 a dozen………but worth every bite!

GREENWICH VILLAGE……views and mews…..

The Village has never lost it’s charm……..residents love it…..tourists are shocked…….and I am always amused………….mews……….cottages………..shingled shacks………rooftop aeries…….private doors and more.

Just CLICK ON a door………..

SUBWAY RIDERS and Posters

The MTA actually calls us ” CUSTOMERS”…..but we still call ourselves RIDERS…… at their mercy.  The New York Times said we have the worst record of any subway worldwide.  At times…..we are packed in like cattle!

There are 1,756,814,800 riders on the SUBWAY per year……thats almost two billion!  Woah!  There are 22 interconnected subways  with the largest number of stations of any system in the world.

 

 

SUGAR FACTORY • a fix for your SWEET TOOTH

 

The SUGAR FACTORY [at 1991 Broadway] occupies a PUBLIC SPACE………….which means you can sit here all day long…………with your phone or your laptop or your ipad…….maybe a book…..and you don’t have to buy anything.



You can even bring your own food and eat it in this pleasant surrounding.

I couldn’t resist this $4 donut……..Creme Brulee……….and I ordered one more!

Coffee, espresso, tea, ice cream………  and a YELLOW RUBBER DUCKIE.

Fill a little bucket [very little] with your candy selection……….pay $14……….and satisfy your craving [a little one at that].
