Dad's Spring Visit to the City

Dad got here last Thursday morning for a visit.  He has been hanging out doing various things during the day while I work - like having breakfast at H&H Bagels, going to Home Depot and figuring out what A/C unit I need for the apartment, replacing light bulbs, taking a trip to Ellis Island and riding the bus around the UES (Upper East Side).  We have been trying various restaurants in the neighborhood for dinner - the favorite is still Hi-Life.  

Saturday was a nice day (it has been raining A LOT here) so we went to the Union Square Farmer's Market and then rode the Staten Island Ferry.  

On the Ferry - it was windy and cold.

Last night we saw Jersey Boys on Broadway.  It was a fun show and one that I would see again.  After the show, we stopped at Stage Deli for a piece of NYC Cheesecake - I think that restaurant is Dad's favorite.

It has been good having him here but he goes home on Saturday.  That is the hardest thing about having people here is seeing them leave, knowing that they are going to AZ.  At least for the summer I have a good line-up of people coming to visit!

Did you buy any of the fresh produce at the Farmer's Market. You forgot to mention Starbucks. Great post with all the pictures. See you soon!!!!
