I want to go everywhere I haven't been, and back to everywhere I have been.

Earlier this week, I spent a long day schlepping around New York City.......
A long, HOT day, but it was fun.
 Fortunately, it was before today's oppressive heatwave started.......
or I never would have made it gallivanting uptown, downtown, all around the town.

Best Of The Weekend


  1. Wow, you just brought back some serious flashbacks to the days when I was in college and working at the American Festival Cafe in Rock Center!!! Great pics, wow it must have been steamy down there!

    1. I do think of you whenever I'm in Rock Center! Hope it's cooler in the mountains than it is here!

  2. Great pictures I like the Corbin building. I feel bad for John going back and forth everyday right now.

    The humidity feels like it's been here forever. Going to get trains is horrible in this weather.


  3. Looks like a fun day; I can not believe that building is still standing from 1888! That's wonderful.

  4. Buying nothing is a good thing! Lunch and dinner with friends, even better! Sounds like a wonderful day!

    1. I wouldn't have minded one little purchase :) But the best part was seeing friends.

  5. So much to see and do, Ms. Toody Goo Shoes. Love that old Corbin building next to the modern. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    1. Isn't the juxtaposition of those two buildings something? I love it, too.

  6. I miss working in Rockefeller Center and it seems like a lifetime ago. I love going shopping in the Oculus building during the holidays. How fun to meet up with your friends and it sounds like it was a great day.

  7. Amazing pictures of NYC!!! It must be so interesting to live there. I hope you are surviving this heat wave we are having. I do not do well in heat like this. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  8. hope, everything goes well with your teeth...
    Waw….fabulous views.... thank you for sharing

  9. Love that beach just between all these buildings and cool to have a glimpse inside the world trade center. Where I live you see only very few high rise buildings and they are not compared to what you showed here.

  10. Amy the first time I saw the Oculus from outside my jaw dropped. We hear so much about one world trade center but this building is equally striking in its own unique way. And when you walk inside nothing can prepare you for that feeling of awe!

  11. Amy I spend many childhood summers in Greenport and as a young adult I had a friend who owned a home there and would visit every weekend. You bought back so many happy memories with your photo essay. I always wish I could retire out there when I get older.

  12. Amy, I just love your excursions into the City. With all your fabulous photos, I feel as if I'm tagging along. Thanks for sharing! Joan

  13. Buying nothing after hours of shopping is either frustrating or exhilarating!! There's always next time. Great pictures!

  14. One day I hope to visit NYC and the Statue of Liberty--- maybe you would be my tour guide?? Thanks for sharing at Best of the Weekend!
