Highlights: The Chelsea Market, and the Food Art. Grand Central Station and spotting Orion painted on the ceiling. Visiting the Society of Illustrators to view the Student Show, and getting to see the third floor dining room and bar, going up the stairwell past an N.C. Wyeth Robin Hood oil painting. The booths in the Union Square Farmers’ Market, displaying everything from morels to Saxon Merino yarn to maple sugar candy from Deep Mountain Maple. Going to a Garage Sale—in a parking garage! Fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and a chocolate croissant at City Bakery. Trout stuffed with oatmeal at St. Andrew’s Scottish Restaurant. The Empire State Building lit Red, White and Blue for Memorial Day. My new Nikon Coolpix performed well.
Saw a nice big Barnes & Noble. Ignored it.
