Eric and I look a little trip to the capital of the world-NYC! Last time I was in NYC was in 65/67, I was a young kid, went to the Worlds Fair! Eric and I are not big city people, but we had a niece getting married in the city and off we went. Surprisingly, Eric and I loved NYC! So much great food, old and new things to see, LOTS of friendly/helpful people, shops, parks and sitting out on the pier watching sail boat racing, (well- I was knitting).
We walked 5-6 miles down, from Mid-town to Battery Park. Stopping in SOHO for some yarn shopping. Purl SoHo has the NICEST people working for them. I did not realize that Purl SoHo had their own line of yarn! And, the price point-fantastic! The shop is small, not much to really see, but worth a trip.
I also went to Brooklyn General store, nice, but again, not much to see!
Sarges, where we ate the BEST corn beef sandwiches, like biting into butter! Eric and I split one sandwich and that was enough till a late dinner. New York has great food and the pastries, over the top.
I'm not sure I'll ever return to NYC, it's a long ways from my home, but it is so worth, at least once to visit that great city.
