Adventures in New York City

In a New York minute

October 10, 2013

Adventures in New York – the final installment These are a few of baby girl’s and my favourite memories, some standout New York minutes of the places we visited and the people we met in the Big Apple. And to think that we saw it on Mulberry Street Somewhere near Mulberry Street we came across […]

You can’t touch this… Oh yes I can!

Adventures in New York, part eleven Baby girl wanted to see whales. In the middle of New York City. And so off we went to the American Museum of Natural History. They were displaying what was purported to be the skeleton of the largest whale ever. Not really. It was just the largest whale skeleton […]

Where the hell are the….

Adventures in New York, part ten New York City is FULL of amazing things to see and do. And we saw as much as we could in six short days. But what often stuck out were the things that were missing. Three things in particular. Bugs. Seriously, there were virtually no bugs. No mosquitoes. No […]

Canadianisms in New York City

September 2, 2013

Adventures in New York, part nine Baby girl and I are proud Canadians. We love our big little country and revel in little glimpses of our piece of the world when we travel to other pieces of the world. New York was no different. These are our favourite Canadianisms in NYC. In La Cucina, a […]

The dirty underside

August 18, 2013

Adventures in New York – part eight Baby girl and I had avowed to take taxis everywhere we went in New York. Or walk. Crawl if we had to. Anything but take the subway. The subway. The dirty underside of New York City. Where every ride on any train is a life-risking endeavour. Where the […]

One night in New York

August 12, 2013

Adventures in New York – part seven Our third night in New York was one for the history books. And the daytime was no slouch either! It was Thursday, the day we were whisked up to the top of 30 Rock in a glass-ceilinged elevator (*squirm, vertigo-fueled nausea*), the day thar be giant whales at […]

I just can’t wait… to see The Lion King!

July 24, 2013

Adventures in New York – part six Since the first time we saw that wonderful Disney movie, The Lion King has been baby girl’s favourite. Which is a relief because before that it was Dumbo, the most cringe-worthy ‘children’s’ movie ever made (therapy? Who needs therapy?). When she turned twenty-one this past February, her birthday […]

The Philosopher king – and other NYC waiters

July 14, 2013

Adventures in New York – part five At virtually every place we stopped to eat in New York City, we were impressed by the wait staff. Here at home, you get a waiter. Just one. Sometimes another person will fill your water glass, but not often. In New York City, we were served by a […]

Now that’s art

July 8, 2013

Adventures in New York City – part four After our less than satisfying streak through the Museum of Modern Art, my baby girl and I decided to skip the culture and tour the streets of New York City. We hopped the subway (more on that in a later post) and rode it all the way […]

You call that art?

July 1, 2013

Adventures in New York- part three My baby girl and I are what are commonly known as ‘streakers.’ No, we weren’t running naked through central park scaring the locals – we tend to ‘streak’ through attractions, such as museums, rather than study the details, or pore over each artifact. Along the way, we aren’t shy […]

Taxi Driver

June 20, 2013

Adventures in New York – part two My baby girl and I got our first introduction into New York life with a taxi ride from JFK to Times Square. And if that wasn’t enough to send us running back to polite, quiet, safe home, well, nothing would be. The system was well run, just walk […]
