The view from (the Time Warner Center at) Columbus Circle looking east. You can see the faint remains of snowflakes from yesterday's storm.
I gauge my winter activities by the weather conditions. Today was cold, but clear and the sidewalks and street crossings, a big challenge in bad weather, were fine. I made it to Yoga class, to the post office and to Columbus Circle. Actually, this was not a big challenge. It's three stops on the subway to Yoga and then four more blocks to the post office and Columbus Circle. I'm going to share a secret, New York friends, the nicest post office in Manhattan is only a block from this view.
Love the decorations at the Time Warner Center. The atrium is filled with Moravian stars that
change color. They're especially pretty at night, with holiday music playing in the background.
Chocolate or not-chocolate croissant? What's your pleasure?
While I was exploring the Time Warner Center this afternoon I took a quick detour at Bouchon Bakery, one of my favorite spots for a snack or lunch in the area. The food is great and the view of Columbus Circle -- as shown in the top picture -- never disappoints. I was only planning a cup of coffee, but the line discouraged me and happily, kept me from any pastry temptation. I did take a few photographs of my favorite goodies and decided to share them with Buttercupland. Aren't these the flakiest, most delicious-looking croissants? The only problem is choosing chocolate or not-chocolate. Of course we don't have to choose. Let's get both and split them between us, with a nice cafe latte.
The croissants inaugurate a new feature in Buttercupland, New York Yummies. At least once a week I'm going to feature a yummy New York food. Since it's December I'm going to be on the lookout for holiday favorites. I hope you'll enjoy this sweet new feature.
Next time in Buttercupland our focus is on romance. Intrigued? Please stop by for the fun!
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.
