NYC- Finally

I don't want to forget some places I've been while in the city.  Just got some updating done. Tomorrow we head to NY for a couple of doctor appointments....I must map out our day being I have an appointment at 10:15 another at 4:15. 
View from the Boat Basin Cafe by the Hudson River.  Take 79th street to the end and you'll find it by the river.

Lucas found glasses at Cohen's Optical on the corner of 60th and Lexington. 
They were super helpful!

Is that Polar Bear Awesome or What!?!?

Can't pass up Serendipity3 for an Iced Hot Chocolate!

A lot of my fav brands.....

I love Sabon- they will let you wash your hands with their beautiful smelling scrubs and then apply their lotion- YUM!

St. Thomas Episcopal Church

I'm not Episcopalian - but this church is absolutely beautiful to see and pray in- there is such a presence there.
St. Bartholomew's Church
325 Park Ave (near 51st Str)
Ny Ny 10022-6912
All religions welcomed here
There is also a shopping area set-up during the Christmas holiday here
I Loved this church because of the huge praying angel inside
I guess they also filmed a scene from the movie Salt in the church
Here's the picture I took of the angel when I was there in December

St. Catherine's (right near Sloan Kettering Hospital)
411 East 68th Street
Ny Ny  10065-6395
they also have a park that you can eat at picnic benches, and kids can go on the swings.  One night we got our self some street meat and headed to the park to eat while the kiddo went on the swings.

Our Lady of Peace Church
237 East 62nd Street
Ny Ny 10021
This is an adorable church- it's so sweet and calming. I attended mass here with my mom.

Grocery Stores- Well the Food Emporium right under the Queensboro bridge is so cool to visit the prices are high. I ended up going to a cheaper market called
1208 1st Avenue & 65th
Ny Ny  10065

Duane Reed is also right on 1st....their housewares items are down stairs. These 2 places were convenient because I would pass by on my way to and from treatment.

There is also a Dunkin Doughnuts on the way ;)

Carmines Restaurant is a great place to eat for 4 or more people because it is family style.

For Chinese on the West Side while shopping around 6th Ave- The Main Noodle has yummy food!
1011 6th Ave @ W38th Street
Ny Ny  10018

Angelo's in Little Italy!
It is the oldest Italian restaurant in Little Italy
My fav  - I love puttanesca sauce!  The broccoli rabe is awesome - oh an order the anti-pasta appetizer!

If you don't want to spend that much and maybe can't get in I also love BenitoII...the guy out front is wonderful and the food is good!

163 Mulberry Street
Ny Ny  10013-6101

Where I stayed while in treatment:

Bridge Suites (they are right near the Queensboro Bridge)

It's a walk up so no elevator- we had to ask for a lower floor. All the rooms are different so make sure you get a decent room. I was in room 121 and it was very nice. I dealt with Sammy O. - he is the nicer of the men I dealt with. These Suits are located at 60th ave and Rads treatment is on 67th so the walk was great.

Like I was told the fruits and veggies on the street are the cheapest and oh so good.

Another note- NYC has better tap  water- great article!

My new favorite bridge
The Queensboro Bridge- read all about her!

Here's a book worth checking out:

Well some more places I would like to remember in the city:
I linked to their websites- there is usually more than one location in the city

Conway (cheapo clothing store)- you have to get to Conway- it's a discount shoppers paradise.  My sister-in-law calls it disposable clothes.
Filene's Basement- where bargains are born- they are my favorite for shoes
Loehmann's- the it store for designer fashions
Daffy's- high fashion low prices- Daffy's is my favorite!
Ricky's- one stop super shop for all things beauty- need a beauty product this is the place- I found my false lashes, ear lifts and even nipple covers here!
Pylones- this place is just plain fun stuff for everyone- unique gifts
take this for example
For the person who has everything:
An egg cup with a spoon and little tool to crack your egg
