New York, New York

Here are some more pics from my New York days – a range of everyday (or not so everyday) sparks that caught my eye as I wandered around.

An important discovery – Trader Joe’s chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
The best toy shop in the world. The best.
You can even adopt a baby at FAO Schwarz. The staff in this area wear white coats, like all good dolly doctors should.
Oh, the things you can do with duct tape…
So, I found this amazing. And other people were taking photos in the Macy’s bathroom too. That’s the tap in the middle, the soap on the right…and the hand dryer on the left.
Serious table tennis players in Bryant Park.
And in upstate New York, a cool way for kids to travel (and be distracted) during the weekly grocery shopping trip…
It’s a drive thru kinda country. This is a drive thru bank in upstate New York – ATM on the left, deposits & human (voice) interaction on the right.
And if you’re tired of your Snuggie, maybe it’s time for a Footsy – the throw that’s a treat for your feet!


Finding those everyday sparks - the ones that make life funnier, scarier, happier, nicer, weirder...

  1. Some observations:
    1. This is now the 3rd time you have mentioned Trader Joe’s chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels. BCD and I are expecting samples. Please.
    2. The newborn nursery gives me shivers. And not in a good way.
    3. I can SO see you buying the Duct Tape Bangle set. For yourself.
    4. I’m with you on the Macy’s bathroom taps. Well cool.
    5. I’ve heard about drive thru banks & ATMs – still an’t quite believe it, but…
    6. Footsy just takes the cake (and in man colours, too)

      1. Hahahaha – to be honest, I included the picture this time just for you! Nevermind samples – I want to look into exporting them to Australia! 😉

        1. Oh, and the FAO Schwarz nursery is frightening – I actually remember taking a pic on my last visit because it freaked me out so much. I was wishing the assistant in the white coat would hover closer to the babies so I could get him in the pic too. The duct tape bangle set made me snort with laughter as I passed it, can’t believe they didn’t give it another name. And the Footsy is only $19.99 – Merry Christmas, LM!

    1. Hahahaha – that kit made me laugh so much. They could have at least given it a cooler name – imagine the disappointment of a little girl getting duct tape for Christmas!

Enough about me, what do YOU think?
