A day in New York 

The TH Daughter and I went in to New York for hoofing around on a simply beautiful late autumn day. We arrived at Penn Station around 11, and by many stops walked to Dylan's Candy Bar at 60th and Third, where we spent a ridiculous amount of money on a tiny amount of candy. Apparently color-coordinated M&Ms command unusually high gross margins.

From Dylan's we took a cab to the American Apparel store on E. Houston, then walked through SoHo to Chinatown where we took in the sights and partied down with fried dumplings and vegetable fried rice. I took a few pictures along the way. Run your cursor for short descriptions.

No horse riding in NYC?

What's the use of all those lessons?

The Tiger Daughter could earn money doing those tourist carriage tours.

Why is it when I fast scanned those great images, the opening theme of MYPD Blue popped into my brain?

You had some great weather! Let me know if you need any referrals for the next trip. I've been living and working here for 20+ years now.
