Little Things: City Shots

I can handle NYC in small doses. Day trips here and there where I adore the hustling and bustling city.
There is a beauty to the city. The lines. The sounds. The sights.
I guess taking in NYC in small doses allows me to really find the gems within the city!

Seaglass Carousel

I'd like to be, under the sea...
In an octopus' garden in the shade...

{Octopus's Garden -- The Beatles}

When mom and I were down in Battery Park we stumbled upon the most amazing carousel.

The Seaglass Carousel is in a little pavilion along the water front and is a seriously amazing mix of fish on turn tables. They rose and spun as lights changed and music played.

Mom and I are both serious carousel fans (our boardwalk routes) and we so enjoyed the ride!

It was the perfect way to end the day in the city!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v 49

The Good:
Yesterday, I volunteered for Maimo's Yom Chesed. Close to 500 people volunteered at a variety of projects to help the local community. Shifra and I worked on a project preparing Chanukah bags for the Jewish food pantry to ensure all local families can celebrate the holiday!

The Random:
I mailed out my Christmas/holiday cards this week. With Chanukah stamps...conflict of holidays?

The Fun:
My kids love to learn cursive. I know it's a dying art...but they love our lessons on Friday. This week, we learned lowercase f. All of a sudden, I hear a kiddo singing..."I like big f's and I cannot lie" I nearly died laughing...how he knew the song and how to riff on it is beyond me!!

Little Things: MET


Mom and I headed back into the city during Thanksgiving weekend for a show and some culture at the MET Museum.

One of the exhibitions they currently have is all about Jerusalem from 1000 - 1400. We were both excited to check it out.

But first...I had to stop by the Egypt exhibit because it must be one of my favorite parts of the MET. I fell in love with it all over again being there as the sun went down...gorgeous!

The exhibit was really interesting. Tons of amazing artifacts. So much gold! They had an impressive collection of old books: bibles, qu'rans, and more. It was really interesting to see how Christian the city was in those years!

It was a fun afternoon of culture for sure.

Brooklyn Bridge

Like to plant my feet on the Brooklyn Bridge...
The good old Brooklyn Bridge...

{The Brooklyn Bridge -- Frank Sinatra}

On Thanksgiving, mom and I went into Lower Manhattan to explore. I realized I had never been to the Brooklyn Bridge so we made our way to the span.

It's such an impressive bridge! I just loved all the lines the cables created - a photographer's paradise.

I loved the old up against the new of the shiny buildings in the city. Such a great contrast.

Got to love NYC!
