Back to work….
Two weeks off work finally ends on Monday..but what a start to the holidays….
On Sunday 22nd December we travelled to Westfield New Jersey….Westfield I believe is close to Soprano land…..
After Christmas we moved on to New York and a short stay in the Waldorf-Astoria…with visits on day 1 to Times Square, the Rockefeller Centre, Saks 5th Avenue and then to little Italy for a late meal….
We stumbled across this trendy eatery (The Italian Food Centre Restaurant on 186 Grand Street near Mulberry) which was quite reasonably priced and played some wonderful music.
on day 2 we ventured to my favourite areas in New York (Greenwich Village and Soho) with their trendy boutiques, cafes and neighbourhoods surrounded by brownstone buildings with the New York fire escapes. But first off was breakfast at Penelope’s…
My only purchase, made on the border between Greenwich and Soho, was a New York style woollen hat. I will have to go back to New York again for shopping later in the year when it is not too crowded.
We came back to Toronto only to find many of our favourite walks covered in fallen trees….. case in point ”the Gardener Beltline” where we take our dog Bella for walks…..
