Bleecker Street, NYC


A gorgeous autumn afternoon for my daughter and me to head to NYC!
This time, our goal was to explore Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village.


A fabulous lunch at Frankies Spuntino, 570 Hudson Street.
We decided on salads. 
Hers was the Honeycrisp Apple, Eggplant & Blistered Pepper, 
mine, the Roasted Beets & Avacado with Balsamic Vinegar. 
A. Mazing.


Don't you love this pretty flower box outside of Frankies?


OK. So, maybe it wasn't a good idea to stop in the middle of the street 
to take this photo, but I couldn't help myself.
{At least the white hand was still lit}  ;)


The spelling of this shop's name is a clue to the owner, 
for those familiar with designer Marc Jacobs. 
Bookmarc is at 400 Bleecker St. 
There's a fine selection of books on photography, fashion, and art, 
along with classics like Wuthering Heights and The Catcher in the Rye.
You'll see Marc Jacobs bags, keychains and accessories as well.


The "eye-catching" centerpiece of the shop was this 
enormous lit eyeball,
which actually blinked open and shut. 


This bronze sculpture at the corner of Bleecker & W. 11th St.
is called "The Family". It depicts a family of 5 - like mine!
Created by Chaim Gross, who dedicated it to former NYC Mayor Ed Koch.



Check back for pics of the very cool Chelsea Market!
A highlight of the day, and way worthy of its own post.


Time to re-fuel. 
We chose The Diner, located in the Meatpacking District
at the corner of 9th Ave. & 14th St. 
Best veggie burgers ever!


We love the Big Apple!
Always guaranteed marvelous mother-daughter fun!
