My friend Claire told me about this awesome website theskint.com. It lists the daily free or low cost activities going on around the City. So, I looked there for suggestions on today's adventure. A two o'clock showing of the 1937 classic Shall We Dance starring Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire was playing at the Lincoln Center Amphitheater. Usually I would have just slowly eased into my morning, heading Uptown around 1pm. But, new roommates were moving in, so I left Laf around 10:30.
But with hours to kill, today I decided to walk. Art booths decorated University Place from 4th-14th Street, and the typical Veggie Market was going on in Union Square. At 24th and 5th Avenue Madison Square Eats featured treats from 25 famous food tuck vendors. It's going on for another week, so be sure to stop by. I tried a Blueberry/Mint popsicle from People's Pop. The $3.50 price tag was a little steep but definitely worth it. Whole blueberries and mint leaves were in every bite...yummy!
So if you have a favorite place I should check out, please let me know. I'm in need of a few new suggestions!
