Tricia arrived in New York today for a variety of work-related events. They start tomorrow. This was a day to explore.
While waiting for her, I made my way to the dry cleaner and managed to figure out a way to identify which key opens which lock.
When she arrived, we walked to lunch at Ajanta - good stuff, definitely a place to return.
An effort to visit Riverside Park failed when the entrance that we selected was closed. We did see the Hudson from a distance and New Jersey from an even greater distance.
Our explorations then took us north to visit Fairway Market. Quite an experience - even though they exploit octopi.
While wandering, we connected with a friend of Tricia's brother. He was doing a music show at the Atria Senior Living Community. We went and checked that out. He took us to dinner at Hampton Chutney - we ate dosa (light crispy, sour-dough crepe made from rice) for the first time. Another keeper.
The evening was gorgeous so we walked up Broadway from 83rd to La Salle.
Oh yeah, I bought a large screen LCD TV in there too.
A good day. With 22,217 steps - even though I did not get to the gym.
