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.

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!

Bubby’s truck, TriBeCa

Bubby’s restaurant serves yummy brunch but the day I took this picture, we actually came from Locanda Verde, which also serves excellent brunch.

Times Square at night

I was on my way to see The Importance of Being Earnest on a Saturday night.  It’s amazing that I can capture this photo with the flash turned off.

53rd and 6th Ave.

I was on my way to the MoMA when I took this shot.  I like the yellow cabs and the foodtruck umbrella in the background.  It’s quintessentially New York.
