Dec. 2, 2013–last day in NYC

2013-11-26 17.40.32Den went to the office for the last time and was honored with a little celebration.  I walked to the library and returned our last books.  Then I strolled to Financier and bought macaroons and bagels at Tal’s.  It was the last walk past Periwater and ZeZe, exquisite florists on our block.  It was time to finish packing and take down our colorful bulletin board walls.2013-11-26 17.41.14

Late afternoon we took the subway from our usual stop on Lexington to 81st, the Natural History Museum stop.  This is one of our favorite stops due to the exquisite animal murals.  2013-12-02 16.08.522013-12-02 16.08.412013-12-02 16.06.58We walked over to The Yarn Company on Broadway, a great little shop up a long steep flight of stairs that I have enjoyed often.

We then walked down Broadway to Winter’s Eve, the Upper West Side’s annual holiday festival.  As we strolled around Lincoln Center Plaza and enjoyed the lights, we remembered dinner at Lincoln, the Met Opera, and the Philharmonic.  2013-12-02 17.58.23The tree lighting ceremony began and as the hundreds of white lights were switched on, Arlo Guthrie sang “This Land is Your Land.”  With the tree aglow and the crowd singing along, it was just the best of New York City.

We have seen so much here and done so very many things.  It has been an incredible opportunity for us.  We don’t think we could ever do this again as we would always be comparing it to our three perfect months here.

2013-12-01 13.33.47We took one last stroll down our block to the East River and bid farewell to the Queensboro Bridge and Manhattan.  WE LOVE YOU, NEW YORK!!!!2013-11-02 13.00.062013-11-11 11.00.38
