No, this is not a museum, but the main post office for New York City at 33rd St. Gorgeous building, not unlike the old and beautiful Penn Station that they tore down to put up a monstrosity.
This was the first time I had noticed the drop-dead gorgeous Art Deco brass doors of the Manufacturer's Trust Company - later known as Manufacturer's Hanover (aka Manny Hanny). The construction interfered with my photo, but that's the way it goes.
The street fair was mostly food stalls with a few craft stalls and some street performances. Uh - Proactive Aloe Detox Water? The emperor's new clothes.
This violinist and his tux had seen better days.
I love their rhyming motto.
Broke our hearts that we weren't hungry. We've been to their place in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn. You have to drive or bike there; there is no subway. Their lobster rolls are iconic - we've been there.
I thought this woman looked wonderful in her red, orange, olive.green dress.
Collecting bottles and cans so she can pay for her dinner.
About 3:30 we needed to sit down, so we went into the espresso & gelato place. I had an iced expresso con panna. The gelato was not for me -- too sweet.
Around 4:00 the dancers from the Joyce Theater across the street came out and gave a lovely, graceful performance.
After the dancing, we headed back uptown. As we were leaving the street fair, we noticed this restaurant and I had to have a picture. Uncle Jack's steakhouse and sushi bar?? What kind of a combination is that? Too funny.
We stopped at my favorite International Foods market and stocked up on spanakopita, taramasalata, real Greek feta, taziki, and halvah for dinner at home. I've been noshing on the leftovers all week.
