How it began…

Alice, tiring of her sister’s chatter, was getting sleepy.  She didn’t think much of it when a white rabbit appeared in front of her and pulled a watch from his pocket.  He began shouting, “I’m late! I’m late!” then he scurried into a thicket and disappeared down a rabbit hole.  Bored, Alice followed.  She tumbled and... Continue Reading →

A Crown Jewel

We love Central Park.  It’s one our favorite places to go to just enjoy the day. Doesn’t matter what the weather is.  In the winter under a blanket of snow, we lay down in the Sheep Meadow and make snow angels.  In the spring, we walk through the Ramble catching the flora come to a...

Katz Deli

The Madhatters told us to do it!  So we did. Katz Deli is one of the oldest delicatessens in New York City.  It was first opened in 1888 in the same location it is today.  Sliced pastrami is their specialty. I had the pastrami on rye!  Justin and Lynn of the Madhatters strongly suggested the... Continue Reading →

The Celtic Option

Spring has been trying to nudge out winter, but old Winter has been putting up a fight.  Saturday it broke even with bright sunshine and cold wind.  Not all we were hoping for, but too nice to miss.  We donned our jackets and later wished we had brought scarves and gloves. We found two options... Continue Reading →

A Walk in the Fog

It was so foggy.  How foggy was it?  It was so foggy the ducks were bumping into the piers.   You couldn’t see the tugboats and barges just beyond the end of the piers, much less the coast of New Jersey across the Hudson. JAM wanted to take pictures in the fog, so we bundled... Continue Reading →

Stardust

For those of you who are planning to visit New York City, we have found a touristy thing  we think you will enjoy. Near Times Square  sits a diner that looks like a movie set from Happy Days.  It’s the Stardust Diner.  There are two ways to spot it.  One, it looks like something from... Continue Reading →
