I don't know about you, but I tend to get in ruts. In showing people parts of NYC, I tend to walk the same path, go into the same stores and do the same things. I sometimes need to be forced to walk a different road.

Mom and I headed into the City today to go the Antiques Garage flea market, and it was good, but not as good as we hoped (or as good as the Paris Flea Market in Denver). Although I did walk away with one little treasure.

But afterwards was good, because we walked different roads than I have done in the past and we discovered new neighborhoods that I hadn't seen before.

How many times have I seen the Chrysler Building peeping through as I turn a corner or walk up 5th Avenue to Central Park?? Lots of times, but I have never actually walked by it. But we did today. And check it out! These buildings are amazing. The Chrysler building and the surrounding buildings remind me of a classic car all shined up in chrome (which was the idea behind the design). As a lover of vintage metal items, I loved this view.

And how many times have I walked by the NY public library, but never gone in?? We visited the children's room and discovered the ORIGINAL stuffed animals that were the inspiration for all the Winnie the Pooh stories and books.

It was a great day of discovery. Thanks Mom. Dad rode the train in and we met him at Grand Central so he and Mom could have a date night. They enjoyed dinner at the Bryant Park Grill, and I came home for a quiet evening with my family.
