  1. That croissant is ‘not fair’ I exclaim as I’m dutifully eating my morning yogurt! Oh and I noticed, your cat has some attitude – course (s)he IS a New Yorker, right? And that quilt series, most excellent…I’m googling it now.
    Thanks for the glimpse into the bigger world beyond the cloisters of COVID.

    1. This little bakery is just perfect. They do a tea latte with steamed milk…I could cry it’s so perfect. And yes..the cat is all cattitude… the quilt…I never saw it before. Blew me away. Amazing

  2. First, I went to school with Beth O’Leary. But I know she didn’t write that book. Two, congrats on your 5.00. Gorgeous patio. And last, The Met. You are so lucky to be able to drop in. The last time I was there, Degas mesmerized me, too. Especially his bronze sculptures. I’m not sure I’ve seen Madame X. Love her and your city! Thanks for the tour.


      1. I miss having a cat, but my husband really doesn’t like them and their litter box. Since we lost Park I have been getting used to not having to take care of a pet. I have to go over to my son’s house to get my kitty fix.

  3. You do more in a weekend then most tourists can fit in in a 2 week vacation! Everybody is talking about the croissant, but all I can focus on are those FRIES!

  5. Love NYC!
    My favorite work of art at The Met is Princesse de Broglie by Joséphine-Éléonore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brassac de Béarn. I remember seeing it for the first time when I was a kid and how it mesmerized me.
