Back in New York City

I'm back in NYC and regular programming will resume.

This photo was taken a couple months ago at an Italian cafe called, Caffe Dante in the Greenwich Village . My friend and I were early for a movie so we stopped in here for some coffee and gelati, and that was when I noticed the reflection on the window. What you see there are some of the most beautiful and expensive townhouses in Manhattan. These buildings are very characteristic of the Village's architecture. The cafe is very popular among hipsters and tourists alike, so if you are even in NYC, you should stop by Caffe Dante.

So how was your month of July when I was away? Did anything exciting happen?

Te veiled return in Big City. Then content with your voyage? I do not know “Caffe Dante” but I note for October, when I would make a ballade in Greenwich, I would come to take a capu.

Hi Ming,

Welcome home to the Big Apple. I have enjoyed the photos of your trip and look forward to more of New York.

I will certainly check out the Caffe Dante when I am there in September.

Peter said...

I have a feeling that I was there. Was it there three years ago (unfortunatley my too long ago latest NYC trip)?

Thanks for your posts during your long vacation trip!

... and now daily NYC again!

Olivier & John - If you guys would like to meet up when you're in NYC, let me know.

Peter - I believe it has been there for years, if not decades. :-)

Chuckeroon - There is no place like HOME!!!

Hi Ming

Welcome back!
It's now back to regular programming I guess :-)

What was the lady in the reflection eating? She seems to be enjoying it!

Annie said...

The Village - it is a place everyone has heard of but not all of us have seen.

Ming, it's so nice to have you back. The most significant thing about my July was home pleasures - gardening and reading and thinking.

Oh for the love of food! said...

HeyMing! So, you're back in your comfort zone. Have you gone out to celebrate? HA!HA!

Kate said...

Glad to have you back. July? What can I say...it has flown by!!

missy said...

Oh your back! I have missed you, it was great to see pics from you travels but can't wait to see some more of New York. I saw a friend today who lives just outside NYC she said its very humid there at the mo. She has been telling me lots of stories and I so want to be there in Manhattan! hopefully next year x

GMG said...

Great to see you back, lucky traveller!
Nice shot; like reflections.
Caffe Dante was there at MacDougall Street in 1979, my first time in NYC. But it seems that they're on business since at least ten years before John dos Passos wrote Manhattan Transfer in 1925...
Enjoy!

Caffé Dante eh? Aaaand do they know who Dante Alighieri was? What did he write? Or only gelati and caffé there? :-))

I missed your blog and your questions. Really. Happy you're back.

Did you like your holiday in Jersey city? How did you find Staten Island? And Queensborough? ---> Teasing you :-))

Dijah said...

Welcome back to NYC.Missed your pictures of NYC.

annulla said...

Welcome back!

Nope, nothing happened at all while you were gone. BTW, beware of the frozen zone in midtown, but really ... nothing happened.

Sonia said...

Welcome home, Ming!

Love that photo with gorgeous townhouses! The word "Bon Appétit", is very suggestive!
