(part 1 is back HERE)
Other things we did there:
One of my favorite places to people-watch. Ever.We only got video footage of the most interesting people so you’ll have to check out Elle’s video (at the end) for that.
Take-out Thai dinner on my brother’s back porch.
Breakfast on my brothers porch:We had to take advantage of that thing…so rare to have that much space to spread out in NYC. They sure lucked out with that apartment.
One of my favorite things: crushed fall leaves on black asphalt.I know, I’m weird like that.
Church in my brother’s ward on the upper East side.
Didn’t get this pic. until after we changed, but had to get that sign. Met so many cool people there…namely a guy from Romania which I was so excited about since I lived there for a year and a half.
Kind of sad that I could hardly speak a wink of Romanian to him though…
I am in love with art museums.
My very favorite is the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (which I fell head-over-heels in love with when I studied Art History at Boston University).
My second favorite is the Met.
I adore all the different kinds of ways creative people have figured out to express themselves.
And I think I adore even more sharing that with my family.
…and watching my kids soak it all in.
I was obviously very excited about this one. It’s one I’ve taught every single one of my kids’ kindergarten classes for Art Masterpiece.
One of my favorite parts of The Met is the roof.
Because that view is a piece of art itself as far as I’m concerned.
Loved being with my brother Eli and his cute family there. Eli loves art almost as much as I do. I love hearing his thoughts on all the different creations there.
I think that reflecting wall up above is a pretty cool piece of art itself.
And that baby…LOVE.
How did we ever, EVER live without the handy dandy iPhone maps?
Staten Island Ferry.
One more little diner for breakfast on our way out of town.Shots like that one make me go into IWAN phase a little bit.
Goodbye for now.
Just found out Eli is going to be leaving DC to join Tal in NYC in the next little while…so glad we got to spend some time with both of them in their city.
Best tour-guides ever.
Here’s Elle’s video that I’m in love with.
