We caught the train uptown to Columbus Circle where there were some Christmas markets. As we wandered around, things started to look familiar. It seems all the Christmas markets have the same stalls. But, we did find a stall selling 3 cashmere scarves for $20. Seems was too cheap to be real cashmere but they were soft, we hadn't put scarves on and it was cold!
We went back to the station to go up to 72nd street as this was the best entrance into Central Park for us to get to The Boathouse where we had a table booked for lunch. The park looked different when it was covered in snow on Saturday. Today I thought the trees just looked cold. There were horses & carriages running today & we saw Mr & Mrs Claus go past. The choir was singing again in the underpass which was nice.
The lake infront of the Boathouse looked frozen so I threw a penny on it to see how thick it was. The coin just skidded across the ice.
The restaurant was lovely. We didn't get a table right up against the window but we could still see out across the lake & park. The meal was delicious & the service was very attentive.
After lunch we headed back downtown to the Museum of Modern Art. Some of the artworks were okay but there were also some of the ugliest things I have ever seen. We didn't need to stay too long. The MOMA design store was more interesting!
