A Day in NYC

On a recent visit to the beautiful Hudson River Valley, I discovered how simple it is to take the Metro North Railway into the city. Got on the train at the quaint Tarrytown Station, enjoyed 30 minutes of gorgeous scenery, and stepped out into Grand Central Station. I know its silly, but I get very excited about public transportation. Taking a subway thrills me to no end.

New York in early June was my idea of paradise. Temperatures around 70 degrees and sporadic rain showers luring me to into H&M to get a colorful little umbrella, or better yet….

Lunch in Little Italy

find a sidewalk table under an awning at a cafe and enjoy lunch as I take in the beautiful sights and sounds of the city.

Walking around the City

Love the old architecture, ironwork, and the lovingly cared for sidewalk gardens.

Walking in and around Central Park is one of my favorite things to do in NYC.

Museum row is near the park and I visited the Museum of Natural History before heading onto Columbus Avenue where there are lots of restaurant options. Decided on Canteen 82  for dinner (ordered the Tropical Mango Spice with Shrimp over brown rice — loved it!)  then coffee and dessert at the adorable Arte Around the Corner.

Then the day ended as it started, with a relaxing ride on the train along the Hudson River. One day was definitely not enough– would love to spend more time in this amazing city. Hope I find myself there again sometime soon!
