New York Day One..............

We are staying with family who live in Brooklyn Heights, they live close by the river and the Brooklyn Bridge.  This is the view from the end of their street.........


Day one we spent shopping and soaking up the sights. The Magnolia Bakery in Greenwich Village
Famous for its appearance in "Sex in the City".
There is always a queue and today was no exception. 
 Then onto Bryant Park to visit http://www.kinokuniya.com/   a Japanese Bookstore, the selection of craft/knitting and crochet books is amazing, alas the book I wanted was out of stock.  I will get it in the autumn when my brother-in-law visits the UK.     

We then walked what seemed miles to"Gracious Home" a shop which sells all sorts of  household items, our mission, to buy a Dehydrator, we have been wanting one for ages.  I shall show you more about that later.  Exhausted and a bit jet lagged, we found a great pub and saw the second half of the England/Algeria match.   The evening ended with a superb meal here http://thegroceryrestaurant.com/.
