New York Day 1
Staying in Soho district at a very modern and super comfortable hotel called the Arlo.
Started the day with a healthy breakfast at Sanctuary T which has an outstanding range of new age tea’s and flavours.
Late morning activity was a visit to The Met on a busy Saturday. Some interesting exhibits from all centuries including Picasso, Faberge Egg, and some modern american artists. Probably prefer MOMA but both need visiting.
Then the rest of the day was spent exploring The Highline, very good coffee and average lamington at an Oz café called Bluestone Lane in Greenwich Village.
Dinner at Bistro Les Amis in Soho which was French/Italian menu. Good food and wine.
New York Day 2
Started the day with a good breakfast and coffees at an Oz café in Little Italy called Two Hands.
Rainy day but got a dry stroll in across the Brooklyn Bridge, the restored promenade and Brooklyn Heights. That would be a place to live. Then train trip uptown to the Smithsonian Institute of Design which was second prize to waiting in a long queue to the Guggenheim. Next visit perhaps for that one.
Day 3 New York
Final day started with breakfast at Jacks Wife Freda. Good breakfast with ok coffee. Very popular at lunchtime when I wandered past. need to queue later in the day.
Started the touristy stuff with train to Flatiron building and then walked down through Gramercy Park.
Then another train down to Battery Park for trip out to Statue of Liberty. Very crowded but worth paying for the Pedestal and Museum. Interesting history of how the Liberty came about and the collaboration with the French.
Dinner at Houseman round the corner from the hotel. Flight to St Lucia in he morning
