It’s another gorgeous Autumn day in the city, lots of sun and cool temps. I took advantage of it to stroll the famous Union Square Greenmarket.
It’s a wonderland for food-lovers. The stalls are packed with fresh fruits and vegetables, and wonderful baked goods (I was drawn to the latter, naturally). I had never seen Brussels sprouts in their native state.

The people-watching in Union Square is glorious. So many attractive women and men in their business wardrobes, grabbing a lunch on-the-go. Lots of mothers with strollers, and a few fathers too. Older people checking out the produce with a careful eye. Just a fun, lively, green place in the middle of a huge city.

After the Market, I did more East Village thrifting. I returned as promised to No Relation vintage shop, where I snagged a yummy Cole Haan leather purse for $20. It looks almost unused, so, happy shopper! I went to a second Buffalo Exchange store and picked up some casual tees. Then a New York style manicure: fast and efficient, but perfectly done, for $10 plus tip!

Tonight we’re planning to go to a book signing by comedian Lewis Black. Have I mentioned I love this city? Will it take a lot of prying and crying to get me on the plane next Monday?? Oh yes.
Happy Wednesday to you all.
