Sunday in New York - Eataly

A few Sundays ago we took advantage of a beautiful day and ventured into NYC. I wanted to see an exhibit in the Guggenheim Museum and decided to walk the 30 blocks ( one way!) from where the free ferry bus dropped us. I didn't realize the only way to be able to ride the city bus was to have exact change of quarters with no other choice but to walk...walk we did!
The first stop to rest some weary feet was Central Park. So many families are out and about on Sunday, playing in the park, sailing their toy boats and having just a great time.

After seeing the exhibit of abstract art at the Guggenheim, next stop was Eataly.
If you've never been, it's a fabulous marketplace of artisinal Italian food and wine. Very upscale, meaning very pricey, but amazing. The place was extremely busy, it was Sunday after all, and I suggest if you ever want to go, pick a weekday for a less crowded market.

The breads , cheeses, pasta...everything looked delicious.
There are several areas to sit down and have a meal, even an upstairs.

Lots of different cookies, biscotti, chocolate and just about anything Italian you can think of.
The place is huge so be sure to wear comfortable shoes!

I can't wait to go back...with plenty of quarters for the bus ride!
