Korea Town New York City

Hi Friends. I am going to take you on a little tour of Korea Town in New York City. Korea Town is located on 32nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. There are roughly 100 businesses located here. What is fascinating is that even though it is a small street and you wonder where would they fit 100 businesses you look up and smile. Yes they just have businesses all the way up in various floors. One thing I noticed was there are lots of Karaoke Lounges. Seems like a really fun group to me. I enjoyed exploring and trying different things and I hope that you get to visit and love it just as much as I do. 

These dumplings "pocket buns" were huge and filled with different flavors and meats and also had a sweet potato one that was my favorite.
These little fish shaped cakes taste like mini pancakes, some are filled some are plain. I like the plain the best.

Animal shaped face Masks

Love the cute packaging

Korean Bakery Tous les Jours

beautiful cakes

Pink Ice Pops

I love this store with cute packaging of their cosmetics

Hair Mask so cute works great

Paris Baguette Bakery is the equivalent to our Starbucks. Packaging and the sandwiches and pastries they sell is just so adorable and tasty also.

Van Gogh's Ear Rockefeller Center Art

I could sit and watch all the tourists pass and stare and comment at this art installation at the entrance of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue in New York City. Funded by Public Art Fund created by Elmgreen and Dragset this depiction of Van Gogh's Ear which is a pool on the side is catching lots of attention. I have heard "Only in New York" comments and also heard and watched people stare at the pool like it is a fascinating painting and studying it's angles. I love it. One can say Van Gogh was insane cutting off his ear and one can also say it is insane to see an upright pool on Fifth Avenue! The Art Installation will be up from April 13, 2016 to June 3, 2016 at Fifth Avenue between 49th & 50th Streets. 

Van Gogh's Ear or an  Upright Pool?

Easter Bonnet Parade in NYC

Warning this post picture heavy:

Easter Sunday on New York City's Fifth Avenue was filled with lots of bright colors and interesting "Bonnets". It was the Annual Easter Bonnet Parade from 49th Street to 56th Street. It is not your normal parade with floats and marchers and bands but it is as colorful and as fun. The streets are closed off to traffic at this time and everyone walks around wearing their fabulously decorated bonnets and others acting like the paparazzi trying to get a picture of the masterpieces (ME). Fifth Avenue seems magical on this day as the doors of St. Patrick's Cathedral swing open after mass and parishioners in their Easter finest come out into the parade of bonnets. Rockefeller Center is decorated with a giant topiary bunny balancing an Easter Egg on his nose and a big bush tail that seemed to wiggle with glee. Lining Chanel Gardens on both sides were big colorful adorned Eggs. If you are ever in NYC during Easter it is a must to see and participate in. I hope you have fun looking at the pictures xoox
