A Few More Sights and Sounds of New York

One of the things we hoped to do while in Ottawa this year was to make it to New York, at least for a few days. As promised to family, and further to the post from a few days ago, here again are a few peeks at New York from our trip last weekend for Mary Frances’ b-day. (Who, by the way, came down with a nasty cold the day we arrived yet managed to hang in there for all the planned activity).

Most of this is tourist action, (i.e. Broadway, museums, and open-top buses etc.), but some is a little “off-the-path”, including a few seconds from inside the Birdland jazz club, and also inside MF’s favorite vegan cupcake shop in the world – “Baby Cakes” (she has their cookbooks). The last shot was the view from our room.

Given the scope of the city and the richness of the culture, three days in New York allows for only a superficial view, but what a view it is! The towering buildings and the cavernous street views give it character beyond description. The unseasonably warm weather and the chance to learn a little more about the City’s history was a real pleasure. Enjoy a quick sampling here. I may add some better photos taken with a proper camera later. As usual I am blogging on the run with my phone.
