The end of my New York trip comes full circle. Jane and I took the train into New York to meet up with Karen and Richard and see the Gates by Christo.
I left Jane, Karen and Rich at Billy’s cupcake went to meet Jennifer Nash at LeGamin. We had a long discussion over hot chocolate and crepes. After crepes we split very yummy French pastries at La Bergamot. Jen was looking as beautiful and sexy as ever. She made a couple hour drive in from Philadelphia to see me.
I met up with Jane, Karen and Rich at Bud’s for a taste of Billy’s cupcakes before going off to see the Christo’s Gates. Billy’s cupcakes were just ok in my book. I didn’t like the frosting at all it left a funny aftertaste. I’ve known Karen as long as I’ve known Jane we met in the New Haven Art community.
Off to the Gates. Oh what an impression presentation! I love the whole concept of the Gates. Christo spent years planning this wrapping of Central Park and raised more than $21 million for it. People from all walks and talks of life passed throught the gates. Each had a personal impression of the experience. I was even more impressed on this freezing Saturday afternoon the park was packed.
I had a great trip saw my fabulous friends, enjoyed some very delicious eats, and spectacular art. Farewell New York and I’ll see you again soon.
