One more week to NYC!
Just one more week! I'll be wandering around New York City a week from today! I've spent many hours over the past few days with my nose stuck in my Frommer's guide, and my mind is just bursting with plans and information, and I'm giddy with excitement. From the sounds of it, I might never want to leave. There is just so much cool stuff there. It is so hard to try to prioritize so that I actually experience the city and its offerings, and don't just exhaust myself.
So far, my husband and I have loosely planned the following itinerary: Tuesday, fly to NYC on Virgin Airlines, check in and find some dinner. Explore areas like the Village, SOHO and Chelsea, and maybe a little Brooklyn and Chinatown too on Wednesday, when we're likely to have the most energy. Thursday will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cloisters, Central Park, and St. John the Divine Cathedral - and the opening of course! Friday, breakfast with some relatives who are coming to town for the opening, then some other area of town, or maybe something we missed in the neighborhoods we've already visited, maybe MOMA - haven't really decided yet. And a romantic dinner with my sweetie. Saturday, a quick breakfast then head back to Seattle.
If you're a local, or just have a lot of experience with NYC, what are your must-sees in that city? What are your favorite places to eat?
At the gallery, I've had my first sale from the exhibit! It will be great to open with a red dot. Hopefully it will be the first of many. And Liz has designed a catalog with images of all 21 paintings, available here on LuLu.com as a printed book or as a download. She has also updated the gallery's website to include a page of available works for the show.
