Week 21 Inspiration / New York Edition, Part 2

Last week, I shared some photos from our trip to New York City. Now it’s time to dive into part two!

We started the day at Delectica for an awesome breakfast – an omelette sandwich with avocado, tomato, and chipotle mayo. They also had great coffee and fresh-squeezed OJ that made me VERY happy. We ate there 2 days in a row.

Then we headed to Grand Central, where I proceeded to awkwardly initiate a one-woman flash mob, inspired by this video from back in the day. No one cared.

We made our way downtown and hopped on a free ferry to Staten Island in order to catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. You have to check out the ferry’s website – the “ferry facts” were NOT comforting!

The 9/11 Memorial is a short walk from the ferry. It was a very, very moving experience to be there. We didn’t go inside the museum, as it was not open until the following week.

America’s tallest building – One World Trade Center.

Lunchtime meant a visit to the one and only Katz’s Deli for the corned beef sandwich of my dreams.

Luckily, we missed the sinkhole that occurred right in front of the restaurant just a few days later.

And while we’re on the topic of good food – here’s the amazing spread from Sushi Yasuda for our anniversary dinner.

wk 21 insp 12Several cookies were taken back home and eaten for breakfast, because vacation means cookies in bed. After the trip there, I think I may have to buy Christina Tosi’s amazing cookbook!

I have a few final New York photos to share next week, and that will wrap up the New York edition of my weekly photos.

Oh yeah, and I have a fun gardening project I can’t wait to share with you this weekend!
