JFK/Manhattan, Day 62-Stored our luggage at the hotel and grabbed a cab to Manhattan. Susan’s apartment is in a 5 floor brownstone (literally) across from the Flatiron building. She has a great walk up flat with two fireplaces and baths. The neighborhood is bustling and is located between Union Square and Madison Square parks.
We had a very yummy lunch at Irvington cafe in the W Hotel on Union Square. After lunch we walked around and got the insiders neighborhood tour, which was fascinating. Susan took us to Eataly, which is a large emporium of everything consumable and Italian. They have shelves and shelves of olive oils, cheeses, gelato, wine, fresh and dried pastas, beers, coffee, olives, seafood and much more. We went back later to hang out before our cab arrived. As you can see they carry Stumptown coffee, about the only non-Italian product we saw.
We are now sitting in Terminal 5 of JFK waiting for our flight home at 8:40 pm. This is the end of the blog until the next big adventure. Thank you to all that have been following along. Your interest and comments have been appreciated. Caio!
