Hard to believe that it was just last Sunday that we were strolling around NYC. I'm in another world here!
Washington Square Park. Despite signs forbidding it, the kids were of course all playing in the fountain!
And the crowds enjoyed a pianist!
Meanwhile, Mighty Mutts was having a dog adoption event.
And I think this was Union Square. There was a great farmers' market happening there, with lots of beautiful food I wanted to buy but couldn't, because how was I going to bring home a giant wheel of cheese?
I did buy some honey from two different beekeepers. One was cranky, one was really nice!
We also went to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, which was lovely.
Of course I started photography bugs!
Like this HUGE hornet/wasp! It was at least an inch long. Anyone know what it is? It and the butterfly with it were interested in some sap oozing from the tree bark.
They didn't seem to mind each other!
The lily pond was gorgeous!
And this...er... thing. Around here, we'd call this a burn pile!
You could actually go sit in it. You can just see a woman's head in there if you look closely.
We visited the Brooklyn Museum too.
Very interesting collections! I like the Egyptian cat stuff.
It's pretty easy to get around on the subway.
Closer to our hotel...
The Empire State Building pops up. The mast on top was originally built as a docking station for airships, but that didn't work out. Well, I guess the whole zeppelin thing didn't quite work out once the Hindenburg exploded!
And back to our fabulous hotel. I really loved this place. Our 23rd-floor room was dead quiet and immaculate. Very well-equipped and spacious. And the staff were great!
I would definitely stay at the Kimpton Eventi the next time I'm in NYC.
