A Sunday in Pictures

Some of the cool things about living in New York is that you can have breakfast at an iconic greasy spoon like Tom's Restaurant of both Suzanne Vega and Seinfeld fame, where they haven't let their notoriety go to their head as is evidenced by the fact that they haven't redecorated since the late '80s.
And where if there's a wait for a table you can always enjoy a view of St. John the Divine just around the corner.
And after breakfast you can wander through the Farmers Market.
Where the apples look particularly good.
And the tomatoes are locally grown.
Then you can stroll through the quad of venerable Columbia University where hundreds of families and children have turned out for The New York Times' "Great Read" sponsored by Target to promote children's literature and admission is free. And if you're lucky, maybe, just maybe, Julie Andrews will be there doing a Q & A with her daughter, Emma Walton on their collaboration of children's books which you can read more about at the JulieAndrewsCollection.com.
And that's what's cool about New York.

Yes, New York IS very cool. Last time we were there we just happened upon the Feast of San Genaro festival in Little Italy while looking for a place to have dinner. We ended up spending the rest of that evening strolling the streets in little Italy watching bands play and eating and drinking great Italian fare.

Sometimes I think I'd give anything to live in New York. If I was rich.
