A NY weekend —short and sweet just the way I like it.
The Chrysler building is still magnificent—I like the upper east side best.
sometimes photographers have to take some risks,
New York is a walking city and the shop windows are fabulous—I have dedicated an entire future post to it—Bergdorf Goodman’s window displays are so sophisticated, they are like mini-exhibitions.
India is big on Fifth Avenue:
so is the cathedral…
Manhattan is a “hall of mirrors” with a maze of old and new architecture to dazzle you:
Brownstones are beautiful in springtime,
so are bluestones!
Prepare yourself to eat half a cow at Carnegie Deli,
and then the other half:
Jim Dine’s Venus on the 6th avenue,
The upper west side is younger and hipper—Amsterdam avenue leads you to a little gem of a café, good enough to eat.
A hole in the wall, Zibetto espresso bar, is an ideal place to get you going again,
to see some more of this beautiful city:
and its skyline.
I visited the Metropolitan museum and the Frick Collection as my usual pilgrimage but the most exciting show was at the New York Public Library. I have two great exhibitions to tell you about but that’s got to be in the next post.
