You always find something new in New York City! Today we went into Manhattan to see The Butterfly Garden at New Victory.
It was wonderful. Innovative. Beautiful. I have never seen anything like it, and I have seen A LOT of theater. Go see it.
In Times Square we met some lovely ladies handing out Wonka candy. Perfect — since we just finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
After the show we headed over to Bryant Park, a gem of a city park. Let me whet your appetite.
There is also a carousel, as well as free yoga, delicious sandwiches and free summer movies. But best of all is the restroom. I’m serious. I’ve been to Bryant Park many times, but had no idea.
When Daddy-O and I met afterward we both looked at each other in total amazement. Just check out the welcoming flower arrangement (and velvet ropes!).
Clean (always a winner), fresh flowers (several vases), mahagony (well, OK, mahogany-like) stall doors, mosaic tiles and….. classical music. Just piped-in music, but maybe next time it will be live. I wouldn’t be surprised. When I took this photo it was in the morning. I visited again later (I had a large beverage, OK?) and there was a line.
It was worth the wait.
