We had one beautiful day while in New York City and we took advantage of it. We started the day people-watching and listening to music in Washington Square Park. We had arrived at Salmagundi too early and popped down to enjoy the sunshine while we waited for it to open. It can be difficult to see the AWS exhibition the night of the banquet, so I like to see it the day before or after if possible. And I linger for long periods in front of some paintings, so that's suboptimal while so many are there for the awards dinner. Anyway, great start to the day. After we took in the show, we walked over to the Whitney. We began on the top floor and came down. Two floors were not for viewing and I felt a little ripped off, but I enjoyed what I saw and I liked the views outside as well. After that we grabbed a pretzel and a coke out front before popping on the High Line. Was this a highlight? Indeed yes! No lights, no auto traffic, just a nice flat walk with great views. I absolutely loved it. And so did everyone else in NYC because it seemed everyone was with us enjoying this fantastic day. We walked until we ended up at Hudson Yards. So....the stairs to nowhere? I told my husband it was a modern labyrinth. If you are going to do it, think of it as a meditation device. His response - hard pass. The other option is a shopping mall. I bet they have some great food choices in there...but I'll never know. I didn't come to NY to spend my time in a retail mecca. Sorry. Crossed the island back to our hotel and time for dinner and recoup. Back to my brushes.
