It was a beautiful day in city. The sun shining and the smell of Spring in the air. I met up Ali with at B&N at Union Square.
Union Square is one of my favorite places in Manhattan. For me it's the point when the hustle and straight laced vibe of midtown melts into the funky bohemian feeling of lower Manhattan. Ali and I went on walking tour. I love walking tours and this one was free! (Even better.) It was a tour of Union Square. As much as I love the place, I know little about it's history. The tour was good and I got to learn a lot about one of my favorite spots in the city. I wanted to share pictures I took today. Please be aware, I'm still learning the ways of taking good photos.
I saw this beautiful door of a townhouse around 8th avenue. I imagine if you went inside you would be greeted by a gracious lady. She invite you in for tea and scones with clotted cream. (I do love clotted cream.)
This was taken in Barnes and Nobles. When I looked up from reading, who was there was my new friend Emily Dickinson. I had to take this shot.
This is the house of the author Washington Irving; It's on the street named after him called Irving Place. I especially love the window.
