Here are some pics from the Upper West Side neighborhood.  I took this picture while in a cab on the corner of 79th and Broadway.

I’ve never actually tried a Gray’s Papaya hotdog but I heard it’s tasty.


Columbus Circle

I was in a taxi when I took these pictures of Columbus Circle.

Midsummer night in Harlem

I celebrated the longest day of the year with a dinner in Harlem.  On my way there, I saw this beautiful glass mosaic mural, Spirit of Harlem, designed by Louis Delsarte. Notice the gentleman with the hat, sunglasses and umbrella.  Priceless.

I had dinner with my friend, Angelica, at Red Rooster on 125th and Lenox.  The cornbread with honey butter was delish! We sat outside and people-watched in between bites. Next door, a band played jazzy tunes and people gathered on the sidewalk to watch.  It was a perfect summer evening.

West Village Bookstore

Only in the West Village… I bought a New York City guidebook here that I’ve used often.

Met Opera House

This was taken earlier this year when it was still cold outside. I was on my way to see Swan Lake.  Beautiful.

Staircase, MoMA

I love going to the MoMA.  It’s one of my favorite museums.  I discovered Modigliani here.  If you haven’t seen one of his paintings, go here!

MacDougal and Houston St in Soho

Another street scene, this time in Soho on my way to brunch on a Saturday morning in early April.
