Trip to New York!: Central Park & Brooklyn Bridge

While we didn't go to the MET or the MoMA, we did go to the MoMA Design Book Store which was super cool!  I spent some early birthday money and bought this sweet clock.  Afterward we met up with the bride, groom, and some friends at Central Park.  Central Park is really lovely.  Have you been?  Everything is landscaped and well-maintained.  Lots of soft grass, tall stately trees with cool shade, as well as flowers, vines, fountains, benches, and sidewalks.  Lovely.

Then there's the Brooklyn Bridge and its lovely parks below.  The bridge itself is really impressive, and the horizon of skyscrapers behind is a perfect match.  It was a beautiful morning - perfect for an ice cream cone at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (Ryan got chocolate-chocolate-chunk, and I got strawberry!), and a stroll along the water.  After a quick stop at Jacques Torres Chocolate in DUMBO, we left Brooklyn with big smiles on our faces.

I appreciated that both Central Park and this park below Brooklyn Bridge existed as open (and quiet) green space to offer some space and tranquility from the chaos of the city.  Smart thinking, city planners.
