I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

TODAY IN NEW YORK CITY: 5.19.16




On the way to the periodontist for the final check of my recent gum surgery,
I happened upon the set for Access Hollywood Live in Rockefeller Center Plaza.

I couldn't stick around too long, since I had a lunch date with a friend,
but I did get to see Natalie Morales of the Today Show 
sit down for a chat with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
Seems that Natalie and Billy are switching jobs (and coasts).

Let me just say that Natalie Morales is STUN-NING in person...
her hair, that dress, those shoes...oh my!
 (sorry it's a little blurry).

From Rockefeller Center, I was off to meet my friend at The Pennsy,
a hot, new, upscale food court just inside Penn Station,
(near the entrance to Madison Square Garden).

Don't look for Taco Bell or Subway in here.
This uber-cool space has culinary offerings from chefs like 
Pat LaFrieda, Mario Batali, and Marc Forgione.

After lunch, I just had to stop at Macy's in Herald Square, which was just a block away.

It's probably been four years since I've been inside.

Finally, I walked up Broadway...

and headed through Times Square.

It was time to get the car and head back home.

  2. Natalie does indeed look stunning! Love that dress :)

    Looks like Manhattan has undergone some changes for the better. Good to know.

    (Believe it or not, I'm STILL sick!).

  3. I like the idea of an upscale food court. Usually there is nothing in those places I want to eat!!

  7. Natalie is beautiful, she has a look of the Kennedys here. I'd never noticed that before. What was just another day in the city for you is sure the stuff of fairy tales for someone like me who has never been to NYC. But what did you have for lunch? Tell, tell!
