Sorry for the delay; I have been a little busy lately....
When we got to New York, it was freezing, of course. It was perfect New York weather. We checked into our fabulous hotel, the Hudson, and inspected our tiny, 150 square foot room. Tiny. The Hudson is fabulous. You walk in and are greeted by two huge green escalators that lead up to an ivy covered lobby. It was gorgeous. It was a great welcome to the city.
We were starving, so we went to Rolf's where we were told it would feel like you were in a Christmas tree. Rolf's did not disappoint. Rolf's is a German restaurant run by Indian men and has French food on the menu. I don't eat brats and sausage so I stuck to the French Onion soup. This was our cheapest meal of the whole weekend. Two French Onion Soups and two German beers later, we were ready to hit the sites of the City.
We left Rolf's and headed towards 5th Avenue to look at the store windows. Bergdorf's did not disappoint. Their windows are incredible. The theme this year is "Curiousier and Curiousier" which is inspired by Lewis Carroll and his works Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. We walked by the windows throughout the weekend and I always found something new and interesting in each window. I could look at them for hours and still be amazed by them. Here is a favorite of mine. I think that this one is incredible; the thought and time it took them to go over every detail. It is amazing.
