Flushing, Queens & Bryant Park
Anthony Bourdain once ate a cumin lamb sandwich in Flushing on his show No Reservations. He made it look so damn good Randy had to go over there and try it. For those of you who don't know, Flushing is the Chinatown of Queens. It's about a 45 min train ride from where we're staying, we practicallly got off the subway, headed to the restaurant, went back to the subway and back into Manhattan. Hahaha, yah, it was that good, and worth the trip.
Down the street was the food court where the restaurant was. Don't blink cause you're gonna miss it! We almost did...
Only 3 bucks for the sandwich! If you like cumin, you're gonna love this sandwich. It was a little spicy I could only take a couple of bites before my mouth was on fire. A guy on Yelp recommended the noodles, they were ok. They were fresh noodles though, so that was nice. After we ordered them we saw another picture with oxtail and the noodles. We shoulda got that instead.
Back on the subway...
We stopped by Bryant Park and I noticed these old Jewish men were playing what I thought was Bacci ball (cause I'm such an expert, I've photographed an event before...hahahaha!) but I was wrong!
They were playing something called Petanque. Whatever. I think it's Bocci ball in a different language.
NY Public Library...I heard it's beautiful inside. Couldn't go in. They were closed today :(
Took some long exposure shots in Grand Central Station. I thought they came out kinda neat. The people look like ghosts!
We did get caught in a little rain storm walking to the theatre, but when we came out, it was dry. Hope it stays that way :)
**Sorry, this stupid blog is driving me bonkers tonight. The settings just don't wanna cooperate and I'm too tired to figure it out. ugh!
