A wellness journey in NY. I thought I would have a hard time to find. The first thing that comes to us: Central Park- the green lung of the island, where you can see Upper East Side’s New Yorker do their running. But here as elsewhere, the Big Apple (well, well another allusion to the well-being!) is so more and so ahead of many others.
While Occupy Wall Street echoes in the world, I am touched to see all these small initiatives. It makes me hope America can still change.And hoping that they also become points of interest.
Images and addresses of our 4 days of wellness in Manhattan:
We went to visit the second segment of the High Line recently opened, taking care to get lunche boxes from Lobster Place at Chelsea Market. A good dose of omega-3 in the open air.
It was the Cider Week in New Amsterdam Market. So we enjoyed a delicious variety of local apple cider, but I wish I also tasted the homemade soft drinks and local beer , they have so nice packaging! I returned later when we crossed the ice cream truck Van Leeuwen and their inspiring flavors: red currant and cream of the Hudson Valley, Oregon Organic Mint and Chocolate Chip, Ginger, etc..
There are a multitude of healthy “Food Truck” in the city, we will have to come back and try them!
Sunday Program: Laugh! No need to exhibit statistics on the benefits of laughing,you know. Hot Soup’s on Sunday Night @ UCB East is an evening of young stand-up comic in East Village.
UCB Theater East-155 East 3rd Street.
While I was waiting for Hugo at Union Square Market, I bought my last memory: Honey produced in New York’s bees from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Andrew’s Local Honey
Another souvenir Edible Brooklyn Cookbook, which I bought because I really want to start making ice cream, but it will be another post.
Apothicary and perfumers, a few good adresses:
