Spring Break in NYC: Day 2

On our second day in New York, we started in Harlem for brunch at Lido for some quality time with two of our favorite people.

All-you-can-drink-mimosa brunches are a New York must. And so is Levain Bakery, which was conveniently across the street from Lido.

From Harlem, we entered Central Park on 110th Street, picked up my cousin at East 86th and walked all the way down to West 66th Street, Lincoln Center. 44 blocks through Central Park ain’t no thing, especially when I used to walk to and from work everyday from 90th to 53rd for a while. (Actually, I was really tired after all that walking in the wind!) It was so great to catch up with my cousin, who just moved to New York, on one of my favorite city walks.

We had worked off our brunch and it was time to eat again. We headed back up to the Bronx for a reunion dinner with 9 of Russell’s old students. This was the real reason for this trip all along. Russell had promised his high school students that he’d be back to visit before they graduated. And he’s a man of his word.

What a fun and ambitious crew! Thanks for hanging out with us, making us laugh, and reminding us why New York is so awesome. Russell thinks the world of you guys.
