Walking the 20 or so blocks back to our hotel..down 5th avenue and all the fabulous designer stores.
We are staying near the garment district and today I discovered a whole street of fabric shops, so crowded with materials it was difficult to move around inside the store.( not patchwork fabric though) mostly evening and bridal fabrics...still I loved looking!
NY material from the city quilter.
a walk across the Brooklyn bridge
Visit to St Paul's Chapel, the church beside the World Trade Centre that survived the 9/11 attacks. It was extremely moving, and filled with tributes and stories about the victims.... Such a beautiful old church built in 1766.
to top off the day, Kerry and I walked very briskly up to Times Square ( just 7 blocks this time!) to see Jersey Boys....which had us singing and dancing in our seats! On our walk home we discovered a bar called ' Stitches' so had to stop for dinner and a wine.
Another exciting and busy day in the Big Apple.
Tomorrow we catch a train to Lancaster...Amish country...and hopefully a slower pace.
Till next time
