My favorite hotdogs in the city!

Statue of Guiseppe Verdi in park across the street

It's a very scenic drive from the Berkshires to Manhattan. We stopped for lunch at Seven Stars restaurant - the half way point. Driving in the city is CRAZY but my sister manages the traffic and congested streets like a pro.

After unpacking we walked the streets of the neighborhood, did some shopping, and went for a manicure/pedicure. We had a big lunch so a couple of Greys Papaya hotdogs sounded perfect for dinner. We took our order "to go" and ate them on a park bench in Verdi Park.

We have tickets to visit the 911 Memorial Site tomorrow at 4:15 . Rain is in the forecast but this is the only day during our stay that tickets were available. My sister can come back anytime but I have no idea when I will be in the city again so rain or shine I'll be there.
