Saturday morning we headed out to walk the Brooklyn Bridge and ride the Staten Island Ferry.
We needed to go to a different Subway stop.
This one was in the opposite direction than the one we had walked to and from each time we left the apartment. We walked toward Spring St.
When we got our corner we looked around to try to find a place for breakfast.
I asked a woman at the stop light if she knew of anything nearby.
She was just walking a friend's dog...and had to think a little bit about it....but then she said, "the cronut bakery is just down the street."
Yes. Of course I want to go there!!!
We found it easily. Just two blocks down.
A perfect french bakery.
I got a cronut. I didn't know it would come in a special box.
How about this packaging?
What words to use for this packaging?
We waited in line.
A little while. Nothing terrible.
Emma chose a ham and cheese croissant.
The cronut of the month was maple pecan salted sugar.
It was absolutely delicious.
It was remarkable.
It was fantastic.
We were lucky to find a little spot to sit.
Sitting is important to me.
I also ordered an almond croissant.
Flakey. Almondy. Perfection.
I have not had such a perfect croissant since we were in Paris.
It was my favorite place to eat in New York.
This and the bagels.
But I think Dominique Ansel's bakery was exquisite....
189 Spring St.
New York, New York
Then we subwayed our way to the Brooklyn Bridge.
It was a beautiful day as you can see.
There is a walkway down the middle and the cars travel below the walkers on the right and left.
We took a picture of a stranger and he offered to take our picture too.
Guess he didn't notice the cable shadow going across my face.
What cha gonna do? I am sure he was transfixed by my amazing style.
He did however make it look like we were the only people on the bridge.
Staten Island Ferry.
The free way to see the Statue of Liberty.
