Photo Recap of Mom-in-Law’s Visit

Here are a few photos from our food tour of Nolita and NoHo (north of Little Italy and north of SoHo or Houston Street).

NYC's new rental bikes. We didn't see anyone actually riding one that was rented but these bikes collected people sitting on them using them as exercise bikes (just sitting there pedaling away) or using them to sit on while they make a phone call.

 One of our food stops that made us feel like we were back in San Miguel, Mexico!

The reflecting pools and fountains are pretty awesome. To think that a very tall building once stood in its place. It's somehow right that they chose to go down instead of building something "up" again.

Reflected buildings. What is really in the skyline?

 

On our way home we took Lynn to the best view of Manhattan that we know of—a little park in Weehawken.

As you can tell, the weather cooperated for both city trips although it was very hot and humid on the day we went to the Freedom Tower. We enjoyed her visit so much!
