Summit One

A few months back another observation experience opened in the city. This one is high atop midtown at the new One Vanderbilt tower. I took advantage of a picture-perfect day to get up there and experience the immersive views. The space is floor to ceiling (and wall!) mirrors. You truly get views like no other. There are a variety of rooms each mirrored, but offering something new and unique as you take in views of the city and even NJ. 
This was just beyond amazing! The mirrors made it so unique and so different. This isn't a simple "go look" type place, it was a true masterpiece. I'm surprised my stomach didn't drop off when I got up to the window glass, I think all the reflections made it feel less "on edge." When I was outside on the 93rd floor though and nowhere near the edge, well I was convinced I was going to topple over! This was really just so fun and worth the admission price in my book!

5th Avenue in Bloom

Spring is in full swing in the city. Fifth Avenue is full of fun blooms right now, too. Including a new art installation. There are 14 sketchbook-esque planters along the avenue, filled with flowers that match the whimsy of the giant planters.  
They are the creation of artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet and are so fun! I love how big and creative they are and that they create a nice contrast between the glassy storefronts and bright flowers. They really liven up the street and are a perfect spring exhibition.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 20

The Good:
Always good when I can pop into By The Way Bakery for some treats!

The Random:
I don't know if this is more of a random or a "wtf" but the kiddie waiting area at my local Mavis Tire is pretty "ummm, what?"


The Fun: 
WDS marched in the Israel Parade on Sunday! First parade since 2019!! It was such a fun day in the city despite the insane heat! I met the attorney general and a Brooklyn assemblyman, too. I was marching with the student council in the governor's group but sadly never saw her.

Harry Potter Store NYC

I took advantage of Pesach vacation to finally get into the Harry Potter Store in NYC. It's usually packed with a several hour wait on a virtual line, but random April Wednesday and I was in within 15 minutes. The store is really cool lots of knick-knacks and HP memorabilia (including some actual props) and a lot of merchandise for sale. 
The details in the space were really well done! The stone gargoyle spinning above the spiral stairs, the elevator opening to reveal a flu network-esque space, the luggage with logos, and more. It was so cool to see the Ravenclaw diadem, some Death Eater masks, and Gaunt's ring. The wand section had every type of wand the characters used too. Super cool spot and glad I can say I finally saw it.
