Broadway might be the most well-known street in New York City, beginning in Lower Manhattan and actually going all the way into Westchester County. I once worked at Two Broadway and I live one block off Broadway six miles uptown. It's no wonder I've spent a lot of time on Broadway. Much of my shopping, walking and bus riding takes place here. I took a few spring photos for Pink Saturday in order to capture the look that this Broadway Baby sees many days of the week.
One of my favorite paper stores was my first stop walking up Broadway...
...then the décor at the soap store stopped my walk for a quick picture.
But it was the apricot torte that was the most appealing to me. I looked, snapped, but didn't buy. I put it on my list to return one day for a treat. This is one of three new fancy French bakeshops within two blocks. This is in addition to the Japanese crème puff store -- really! -- and a Coffee Leaf and Bean. Starbucks is across the street. So far I have been immune to the goodies in the windows and I'm making every effort to keep walking 99% of the time. I want my visit to be a planned treat. Maybe for my birthday...
Question for this Pink Saturday post: Do you have any treats planned for the spring?
Cold, but bright and sunny Sunday today. I made it to the gym and enjoyed the afternoon with my college roommate. We spent time looking at new apps for our iPads and I discovered several that that I hope will inspire me to drink more water. Jane and I met our first week of college in 1968 and have been friends ever since. If anyone had suggested then that we would have computers that we could carry around and we would spend time together looking at book websites I would not have believed a word, or understood what they were talking about.
Here's to sunny days, dear friends and the streets of New York. Wishing you all a very happy and blessed week.
