NYC

We were in NYC twice the past month. We did a lot of walking even though it was hot. We stopped into the Apple store on Fifth Avenue to chill. Don't you love the way the foot steps show through the landing on the stairs? The store is below ground level. The only thing you see at ground is a glass cube, which is the entrance. Our goal that day was the Neue Gallerie on 86th St. The show was about how Van Gogh influenced German & Austrian artists, like Egon Schiele, Klimpt, and lots of others. The little cafe was called Die Fliedermaus and was like from 1900. I cauught a good reflection in the wall while we waited for our Kaffes and Strudel. End of the day we walked through Central Park to meet Mica and Eliza at a Mexican reataurant on 9th Ave. Frida Kahlo watched while we had our meal, which was very good. Our last night in the city, Z treated us to cupcakes at this place on 23rd St. We shared three amazing flavors between the 4 of us. Yummy!

We were so full from dinner that we only had cupcakes but the menu for food looked good. Next trip! The pastry, a real strudel, was at Die Neue Gallerie. It was very good but not as good as Frieda's. If only someone had gotten THAT recipe!
