We spent the better part of the first week in New York. For both Karen and I, it has been a very long time since we have been to New York City.
So we wanted to feel like we lived in New York and rented a very nice apartment in the Chelsea District of New York. They say that it is always about location, location, location... and the location of this apartment was excellent. Located on West 14th there were easy connections to three different subway lines so travel was very easy.
The High-line, the old elevated railway that was made into a park just a few blocks down the street. The Chelsea Market offered loads of restaurant and food locations.
One night we thought we were going to as local diner to grab a burger, and it turned out we walked into a great restaurant.
West 14th Street
We sat at the bar the first night, we went there twice, the couple beside us said it was their favorite restaurant in New York and their tomatoe-basil pasta was their signature dish. Karen had it, it was.
Glenn was attending a fine art architectural photography workshop for most of the time, and Karen enjoyed the neighborhood and took in a show - The Jersey Boys.
