Yesterday my daughter Lizabeth introduced me to one of the seven wonders of the culinary world–pasta pizza. A little pizza joint near Manhattan’s financial district was our first stop after making the flight from Phoenix to Newark.
Along the way, she gave me a brief walking tour of the area. The Seaport Historic District, Ground Zero, a city park filled with people and public art — which I captured on camera while she patiently put up with my “Stage Mom” musings.
Today we’re off to Greenwich Village and the Art Gallery District in Chelsea. We’d love to do Shakespeare in the Park this evening, but tickets are hard to come by so we’ll probably have to save that for a future trip.
Note: The three pieces of public art pictured above, all from City Hall Park in lower Manhattan, are Splotch 15, 2005 from the Lewitt Collection in Chester, CT; Three X Four X Three, 1984 — one of several Sol Lewitt Structures in the park; and Pyramid (Muenster), 1987.
Coming up: Gardens & greenery of NYC; Of scooters & subways; “Kickstarter” project supports art near Ground Zero; NYC: The good, the bad and the ugly
