Scenes from the weekend.

My dad was in town visiting, so we had a jam-packed weekend full of New York City sights and restaurants. Brian and I took him to some of our favorite spots like Queens Comfort and The High Line, and also explored some new places together.

On Saturday we strolled through the Central Park Zoo and listened to music at Blue Note Jazzfest. That evening we had a great meal al fresco at New York Dog House- my Far East Dog was so delicious! On Sunday we drove over to Fort Tryon Park to explore The Cloisters, a branch of The Met dedicated to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The museum space was absolutely beautiful. I especially loved the rings and rosaries downstairs near the Treasury, along with the gardens and large wooden doors throughout the space. The Cloisters had been on my summer bucket lists for a few years, so I was happy to finally make it there! I love that after twelve years in the city there are still so many new places to explore. How was your weekend?

  1. I haven't spent much time in NYC - but this post captured much of what it feels like to me each time... A wonderfully, magical and eclectic expression of the human spirit! So much diversity in one place! I was not expecting the leopard - very fun to have him/her staring right at you/me!

    1. Hey Adrienne! Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. The snow leopard was so amazing to see at the Central Park zoo- it's like he was posing just for us!
