People-watching, eating, and walking – my favorite things to do when out in a new place. I got to part-take in all three activities on my first day visiting a friend in NYC.
We grabbed a delicious brunch at Barbounia in Manhattan.
Watched a game of street-polo and families with young children in local parks.
Grabbed snacks in Chinatown.
Saw some great architecture.
Traversed the Brooklyn Bridge, where I swear we passed Sandra Bullock and I ran into an old acquaintance who had moved into the city in the past year.
And grabbed a Mexican dinner in Brooklyn.
Had we not been worn out by all the walking and if there had been better weather, we would have wandered deeper into Brooklyn to watch the sunset at Prospect Park. Even without that final adventure, we had quite an ambitious day of touring the city. On to more adventures tomorrow!
