NYC Weekend

I had the lucky opportunity to go to NYC this past weekend and spend a day and night with my mom and sister who were visiting from Florida.

We signed up for a walking food tour of Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district so we started the day by walking around the area. First stop - Washington Square Park where we realized we could see the Empire State Building through the arch.

Here are my mom and sister with their phones - they had to text and post on Facebook. After they were done they realized their hands were freezing and all texting could wait until later.

Chelsea Market is in what used to be the old Nabisco building. They had a display case of Nabisco memorabilia which I had to photograph as my father in law worked there for 35 years.

The place was beautifully decorated and the "ornaments" were made from recycled items - this big red globe is made of plastic cups. They had "snowflakes" made from white plastic forks, knives and spoons. They were really clever.
The tour was amazing and we had plenty to eat from a variety of stores and restaurants. It was a fun 24 hours in NYC with my mom and knitting, no yarn store crawl (wrong sister...she's not a knitter) but definitely lots of laughs and lots of fun.

I'm glad you had a fun weekend! No knitting? That must have felt weird. :)

Sounds like you had a nice time. How that happens with no knitting is beyond me ;-)
