NYC Food Diary

It was just a quick trip into Manhattan. I was visiting friends north of the city and we wanted to re-visit both the High Line and the New Museum. We had toured the High Line shortly after it opened in 2009; ditto for the New Museum. An update was in order. The High Line fascinates […]
