Blog2018 ≫ New York day three

We had the High Line as one of our things we must do on this trip, but I was slightly underwhelmed by it. Nice however to a) get a different view of the city and b) be able to walk more than one block without traffic lights.

Lunch was falafel in Papa Kebab, and nice. Deliberately a small light lunch as we had plans to eat later and didn't want to spoil it.

Walked through Chelsea and down to Greenwich to City Winery, very nice. This one we were expecting to be expensive as recommended by Clare's boss. It seems to be multiple different venues in one, one part is more restaurant, one is a gig venue, the bit we went into was the Barrel Room I think, and all wine. They make it themselves on site, and we had a "flight" each, smaller sampling glasses each, three different kinds of red wine. After here to Obao a Vietnamese place Kevin had found and booked, back in Hell's Kitchen again. Very tasty and probably the most reasonably priced. I had spicy tofu and eggplant (oh yeah no more boring aubergine for me) and the drinks were in happy hour too.

Why does this autocorrect on my phone keep replacing for with fur???

Next stop the circle line cruise, see the city from a boat at night. Great commentary, learned some things saw Statue Of Liberty up quite close. You have to get close it is smaller than you expect compared to everything else around.

I left the others up in our hotel bar so expecting a bill there... but THANKS to the generosity of Kev and Guiselle they seem to have picked up the whole thing.
