It’s nice to see the Lower East Side hasn’t changed as much as I thought, and to share my old ‘hood with my kids? Well, that’s just the icing on the cake. We got a clear day to enjoy gazing at downtown architecture, stopped to check out books at The Strand and popped into punk rock and Goth shops with costumes (and a room of glow in the dark clothes that Zoe really loved). We even tried some new-for-us food faves like Japanese street food from Otafuku.

Now that the weather is nicer we’ve been getting out and enjoying Queens. A trip to 5 Pointz in Long Island City is always a great diversion, especially amidst the rumors that it may get demolished by September of 2013. Since graffiti is no longer apparent on subway trains, I’d kind of love to see these buildings and their art stick around. (I’ve been in NYC so long – I really do remember trains looking like this when I first moved here!)
