Sunday in the City

Hey there!

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! I woke up to sunshine and a gorgeous view of the New York City skyline. What a way to start the day. Imagine waking up every morning to that view.

After dillydallying around the apartment (and cuddling with Bailey), Theodora and I headed to breakfast at the Theatre Row Diner.

The diner’s décor had an old-school movie theme with images of Marilyn Monroe and other famous actors on the walls. It was actually a lot more hip and upscale than the diners that I usually go to! The food, however, was pretty standard for a diner.

I started with an iced coffee with cream and sugar.

To eat, I had an egg and cheese sandwich on a toasted everything bagel.

I love New York bagels in a weird way. They’re simply the best.

After breakfast, Theodora and I wandered around a nearby flea market.

We didn’t end up buying anything, but it was still fun to window shop and check out the goodies for sale. Flea markets rule.

Soon, it was time for me to go back to Boston, so I said goodbye to Theodora and Bailey, and then walked over to the bus stop for the Bolt Bus. I planned to take the 12:00 bus home, but the 11:00 was running late, so I made it just in time to snag a seat on the earlier bus. I’ll probably get home about 30 minutes early. Sweet.

Bus snacks: banana, KIND bar, and coconut water.

I’m spending the bus ride catching up on blogging. Stay tuned!



  1. There is nothing weird about loving NY bagels. I’m a Long Island native and no one here in PA understands my love for bagels and my refusal to call the bread here by that sacred name. No one makes ’em like NY delis. 🙂

  2. So…I’ve never had a NY bagel but I’ve been reading about them so much from NY ladies that I’m feeling deprived. Lucky you! Everything has always been my absolute favorite — wish I could have joined you ladies!

  3. Don’t know if anyone’s mentioned this, but NY bagels are so good because of the water used in the dough. Same for the pizza crust. That’s why they can’t be re-created anywhere else. 🙂

  4. NYC is amazing to wake up to everyday – i do forget how lucky i am to live in an amazing city. My fiance is from Boston so i go there often and i always think to myself how amazing it must be to get up and be able to run along the river and when i see your pictures. Unfortunately in NY when it starts getting dark earlier (like now) i feel very unsafe running alone in Central Park (central park jogger) or WSH – so my 530 am weekday runs are on a treadmill booooooo
