sore feet in NY

Today started with negotiating the subway to Tiffany's to eat bagels and coffee outside the store.(it wasn't 5am though) Then a little retail therapy inside.


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
