my manhattan // museums, bakeries & rooftops
since june we’ve been doing “nyc bucket list” stuff and we’ll plan these afternoons in which we’ll link together a few things we want to do and make a day of it. this day (a month ago now) was spent at The Museum of the City of New York and down in SoHo at Dominique Ansel bakery. Here are some forgotten photos that I wanted to get on the blog before it was too late…
the Museum of the City of New York was really great. it’s just small enough that it doesn’t feel overwhelming, but still plenty of exhibits to keep you enthralled for a few lazy afternoon hours. we enjoyed the graffiti exhibit, which had a lot of original Keith Haring’s, as well as the Guastavino and Coney Island exhibits.
^^this exhibit was so neat. the Guastavino domes are so beautiful and all over the city. this was a mock-up of the old City Hall station on the 6 line that is now defunct. they had it set up so if you took a selfie standing on the mark they showed you, it looked like you were inside the station. pretty cool!^^
we knew we were too late for the Cronut when we went down to Dominique Ansel. a full year later and this guy still has a line forming at 6am to get the Cronut. i feel okay saying i’ve never had one because I don’t think i’m missing out on too much. honestly, his other creations are just as incredible and those madelines (pictured below in a yellow dish), made fresh to order, were out of this world.
^^always with the espresso, always.^^
just a little SoHo wandering to walk off the key lime pie and madelines we just consumed. i love these old industrial buildings with their fire escape stair cases lining the front of them. so uniquely SoHo.
and when we got home the super moon was incredible. we headed up to our roof where clif snapped some of these shots (like the one directly below) with a long exposure. I just love them. i think one day when we have a house I will have this photo printed on canvas and framed. something about it is just really special…
…more to come from our “bucket list” adventures. we’re on the countdown (under two weeks to go). see you soon!
