Day 2 in NYC

Thursday began with breakfast at Appleby's - only a block from our hotels, serving up good food and free Wifi. Yes, that man is carrying an umbrella but he only needed it for five minutes.

A visit to Lee's Art Supplies (as recommended by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, a fellow artist and native New Yorker).

A walk in Central Park.

Lunch was a hot dog from a street vendor, just because I had never done that before.  Who knew the mustard was going to be so darned hot??!!!

More walking, past the Guggenheim (closed on Thursdays)

followed by a visit to the Museum of the City of New York - quite interesting, quite unique.  We watched a very interesting 25 minute film on the history of the city, narrated by Stanley Tucci.

A short walk through part of East Harlem to admire the street art

followed by a ride on the subway (oooh, firefighters!), back to our hotel.

Dinner and drinks on a rooftop patio.

A Broadway show - Wicked!!  We laughed, we cried, we enjoyed it very much.

Another great day in the City of New York!

Do you recommend Lee's Art Shop? I've not been there. I'll be back in NY later this month - is Lee's worth a visit?
