We stayed at The Eventi in the Chelsea section. The area was home to lots of stores selling handbags and costume jewelry. Few blocks south there was an abundance of flower shops that received large deliveries of shrubs, cut branches and flowers on Monday morning. By the afternoon, most of the goods were sold. It made me want to go home and cut my own branches. Signs of Spring.
On one of our strolls, I was yacking on the phone and Hubs waved wildly at me to stop. I peered into this large room filled with all sorts of goods. It was so much fun to see two floors worth of stuff being sold. I did walk out empty handed just because I am on this "no more stuff" kick, but I really enjoyed checking out the goods. There was costume jewelry in huge piles to pick through.
Waldy's. It was in walking distance and was awesome because thin crust pizza is my absolute favorite!
The Black Keys at Madison Square Garden. The show was great, but I felt like an old fart because I had to stuff tissues in my ears to dull down the noise.
This was the crazy view looking out our floor to ceiling window down at the street. Anyone afraid of heights?
We enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the villages and ended up at the 9/11 memorial site. This is a view from where we obtained tickets and saw the construction on one of the new towers.
We also wanted to take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, but the wait was over 2 hours and we ran out of time. This is on my to do list for the summer. I want to head back.
I cracked up when I saw this photo of me because I am trying so hard not to smile and show my braces. What a dork.
Hope you are enjoying some Spring weather too. The weekend here in NJ is supposed to be great again. I'm ready to pull out all the weeds that have appeared.
