A short subway ride from the Big Apple

Here is my niece Wendy watering the flowers on the lovely roof top of the apartment where we spent 7 days together just a few weeks back. It felt very posh to have the circular staircase wend it's way up there and, although it was Brooklyn and not the actual City it was, as I labelled this entry,  just a short subway ride from the center of the Big Apple and a lovely place to start off my vacation..   
 The weather was exceedingly hot so we didn't overdo it at any one time.   However we managed a few excursions into the city and I just soaked up the atmosphere as it brought back memories of the time I lived there in 1957 to 1964.  Many, many thanks to Wendy for making this possible !

Gee, I am puffing just looking at those stairs. New York has endless opportunities for entertainment from museums to night clubs. Know you enjoyed.

The photos look very inviting.
So glad you had the chance to do some reminiscing in your "old" town!

How wonderful. I had a friend who had a penthouse apartment in Manhattan and I stayed with her when I traveled to NYC. A lovely way to live. She had a cat who liked to sit out on the ledge.of the roof. It gave me vertigo. They also had a spiral staircase, however, I slept downstairs. Great fun. Popping out to a corner bistro for breakfast.

Ah, there are folks who love cities - and then there are people like me...
I am so glad you got to enjoy a place you love - and some of your favorite people!

But I am glad you are home, safe and sound!

Even if it wasn't in NYC, still a great view and really liked that staircase too!
