We have been quite busy the past couple of days. We wandered around Soho and the Lower East Side yesterday. Lots of walking again.
In Soho I was able to go into The Purl Wool and Quilt shop. They have a new shop which has both the wool and fabric - instead of the two separate shops. Cute little shop - and I did buy myself a lovely little bundle of fabric. I was coveting the Liberty fabrics the shop has there -- but a small stack of Liberty Fat Quarters was $95.00!! A little too much for me!
I did take a couple of pictures of the new shop - a long and narrow space - full of colour!
We also wandered into the Lower East side and we had a Pastrami Sandwich at Katz's deli.. Now that was an experience!! This is the deli that was in the movie - "When Harry Met Sally" It was frantic and crowded and the sandwich was fabulous - a bit pricey - but the people watching was worth the price of the sandwich and the pickles were to die for!
After a busy day walking for another 6 hours - which seems to be our daily average - we came back to the apartment - had a little rest - I snoozed and snored - until 5 PM. We then hopped on the Subway for a quick trip to Times Square and got Theatre tickets for the Broadway play "Race" with James Spader - who I love!! The play was great - James Spader was fabulous and we had wonderful seats - and we just missed the "package left in Times Square" incident by a few minutes.
This morning we headed out early to spend the morning at the American Museum of Natural History.
It is HUGE - 5 Floors!! We saw as much as we could - I think you have to be selective there because you could never see it all in one visit -- hmmmm - I guess we will have to come back to New York!
Then -- It was off to see the David Letterman Show -- How fun was that!!
The guests were Micheal Keaton and Jenna Fischer from "The Office" Micheal Keaton was a real hoot!! What a once in a life time experience - I was so surprised that we got tickets. Another great day - I think we are starting to get tired though.................................
