AAS - you want color? I'll give you color . . .

The weather in NYC has turned sunny and seasonably cool, albeit blustery, especially along the Hudson. I spent much of the day walking, to enjoy the weather, trekking from Murray Hill to the boat basin at Brookfield Place, and back again, along the Hudson and up the High Line.

I've changed clothes for dinner out - another hike from home to the area around Carnegie Hall. One hopes that the calories from lunch and dinner fall out along the way . . .

You live in Murray Hill? Wonderful neighborhood. My dad and his business partner
owned several Brownstones in the Kips Bay area in the 1950s through the 1970s.

Yes, after 37 years in the Upper West Side, an apartment with all the things I never knew I needed until I had them (views, a double vanity in the master bath, and a second toilet) became available for sale, and we moved. We've not regretted it a bit.

I often stayed at the Shelburne when I came to NYC. Around the corner is Sarege's Deli, the likes
of which I do not believe exists in the Bay Area. It goes far to satisfy this ex-New Yorker's gluttony
and challenges the fit of any SF-compliant clothing I am wearing, most recently last May.

Your comment in regards to gluttony, Sarge's Deli, and challenging the fit of SF-compliant clothing is why I stay away from there, as well as avoiding the Second Avenue Deli on 33rd St.

AAS - More color is on the way - put on your sunglasses . . .

The weather in NYC is about perfect for an early Easter Sunday - sunny, breezy, and cool, but not too cool. As this is NYC, and it's Easter, there is that pleasant, albeit strange ritual that is the Easter Parade, which has morphed from the elites parading their finest attire after Easter Sunday services to a spring version of Halloween, with an emphasis on outrageous hats. I have hats, but none which I consider outrageous, but otherwise conceived of a color scheme for today's attire that would be apropos, were I to audition to become an Easter egg.

The welter of people made it nearly impossible to get a "lifestyle" shot in the parade itself, but after our first visit to the parade, my husband and I walked through Central Park, and we took some photos there. I also include one photo from the parade of a couple in full Victorian kit - definitely the most elegant of the flaneurs out today.

Despite the relative convention of our attires, my husband and I were asked to pose for photos several times. The first request came from a gentleman who, at seeing my attire, said "Mafia", and was ready to take my photo, until he realized that I was with my husband. He then included him in the photo, and apologized for initially leaving him out. I told him that I never go anywhere without my consigliere.
