three days in NYC

We began with a 6 am flight,breakfast in a diner, a lovely walk through Central Park and then the Metropolitan Art Museum. It was beautiful, long, day.

We all slept 12 hours that night!

Day two, Friday - THE Mac Store (above) and FAO Schwarz (below).
Then we took a cab to SoHo, went shopping at Urban, lunch at Roccos and more shopping at Evolution, Free People and Pearl River. Then the U of R Alum reception and dinner with Jess, Rob, Summer and Zippy. And then some midnight shopping in Times Square.
Below is Aster's pic of preserved beetles for sale at Evolution. Above is a store window - I am not sure where Aster saw that amazing image!Saturday we took the subway to the Brooklyn Flea - the most amazing shopping experience ever! We purchased military pins, a gas mask, vintage wallpaper, jewelry, a cupcake and much more! Micheal and Katja met us and we went to their house for a short while and then back to the hotel to get ready for a night on Broadway!Above is Aster's shot of the subway swipe card entrance. And below is Gage in his gas mask.

Sadly we did not buy this three faced doll.That night we had an italian dinner at Daniella's and went to see Green Day's American Idiot.
It was so incredible - awesome performances, amazing sound and outrageous set and visuals.

There is nothing comparable to Times Square on a Saturday night!

Oh, by the way, Happy Valentines Day!
