Noho and other places

New York has some very funny place names. I have been giggling at Noho for the past week now, which Cassy has been quite unappreciative of. Yesterday we have had a lovely day shopping, then taking the bus to Union Square and then walking down through Noho and Soho and Chelsea, which was very lovely. We ate at the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park as well (nommy cheesy fries and cheeseburger!) while watching the fat little squirrels and sparrows stealing food in entertaining ways. We found the Chelsea Hotel where famous writers and artists have stayed (Jake, Jack Kerouac wrote there in the 1940's) and sat there for a while listening in to people asking other people to proofread their poems. Walked back eventually through Times Square and shopped at the Virgin Megastore (which is closing down, so everything is on sale!) and then got back to the Bronx where we managed to do some last minute food shopping before heading back for a lovely evening of Daily Show and then sleep (did some cleaning first though...)

I like New York.

However today we managed to fail to go to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty because of thick fog.... got a refund, will go again tomorrow.
