So I've been jotting down some ideas about what I'm interested in doing in New York while I'm pet sitting and it seems like most of my list is free. I checked the weather and the forecast looks pretty awesome for June, which is great, since at least half of my ideas are out of doors.
I want to spend some solid time in Central Park, specifically, Strawberry Fields and the Imagine mosaic, which I have never seen! I also want to take a look at the Alice in Wonderland statue, especially since I remember seeing the Peter Pan one in London many years ago. I want to walk on the High Line too, and read somewhere that the best time is early on weekdays, so that's in my itinerary.
I've never seen the Cloisters, and I think this trip will be the perfect time to go; since its so far north, I never seem to have a day to devote to it, which is the amount of time I feel it will take. If it doesn't take as long as I anticipate, I'll spend the rest of that day in The Met, as one can never have enough time there.
My daughter has given me a list of cool places to see in the Garment District, so if I am reading the map correctly, I may combine that with a wander around the TriBeCa area, but I'm wrong, I'll just wander somewhere else that day.
If I need any more outdoor time, I will visit the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and/or Prospect Park. I definitely plan on some down time, in bookshops, knit shops, and coffee shops. And I'm hoping to see a lot of Brooklyn on my walks with Ollie-dog.
For now, I have some knitting projects to pack. I will definitely post some photos over the next two weeks! Ciao!
