What a gorgeous weekend in New York. It was in the 70s when we started out for South Street Seaport on Saturday. The 1 train is only running to 96th Street. So, we boldly decided to walk the 37 blocks to catch the train there. Funny I never noticed before how uphill it is. So by the time we got to South Street, we were glad to settle down for a nice lunch outdoors at the Heartland Brewery. The weather was so nice we decided to skip the Bodies Exhibit. The Seaport area is more of a mall than a seaport lately. But we enjoyed browsing and looking at the water. (Photo to follow when I reinstall some software and/or figure out how to use my new network.) Nerd that I am, my favorite souvenier is purse size notebook from the Metropolitan Museum gift shop.
For dinner we went back to a place we'd noticed on our long morning walk. At Henry's, on Broadway and 105th, we had melt-in-your-mouth crabcakes, homey roast chicken and fine braised lamb shank. Not to mention Tiramisu and Blueberry cheesecake.
On Sunday we sucessfully navigated a trip to Target in the Bronx and Whole Foods in Edgewater. I now have a much better idea of the Whole Foods vs Wegman's competition. Back at my sister's house, Maggy made a delicious chicken picata that rivaled our terrific dinner of the night before.
