You know that I like to get away whenever I can, and for some crazy reason nowadays, I’ve been enjoying visiting NYC. It’s really not so crazy when you come to think about it, but if you knew me in my prior life, you’d know that the Big City always frightened me a bit. I mean, there are so many people and tall buildings, and confusing streets, and numbers of reasons to stay as far away as possible. But these days, one of our sons lives there, and I have a friend I met blogging who lives there. Other friends I’ve met through blogging live close enough that it’s just a quick trip in.
We were invited by Daryl for lunch and she had made reservations at the Atlantic Grill on West 64th St. just off Broadway at Lincoln Center.
This place has great food, and it’s less than a block from Central Park which is straight ahead in the photo above. Lincoln Center is behind and across the street from where I am standing.
Happy Valentine’s Day ~
Inside, at the bar, we met our friends who had driven down from CT as well as Daryl’s sister. The place was packed but the wait was worth it.
Apologies to non-sushi lovers.
But it was so good.
It was dark inside and I had to turn my ISO up way high, hence the noise (grain) in the inside photos.
After lunch, Reena and I headed back to Penn Station to catch the train home. I shot a few pictures through the window of the cab but other than that, my camera wasn’t out much. Traffic got so congested that the driver dropped us off about a block away from the train station because the cab wasn’t even moving at that point. Luckily we weren’t in any hurry.
B&H Photo on 9th between 33rd & 34th Sts. Some day I’m going to visit this place. I have a couple of gift cards that I’ve never used.
I love sconces.
Hope you enjoyed my quick jaunt to the city. Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
