Summer Streets

This morning it was ‘Summer Streets’ in the city, where one of the avenues up to the park is closed to motor traffic and open for all to walk, run and cycle on. We took advantage by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge and walking up to Soho and then across to the East Village. After a stop and rest in Tompkins Square Park and an explore, we continued on to the Lower East Side where we stopped for a bite to eat and the delicious and incredibly stylish Shillers. We popped into the brilliant Essex Market to buy a few fresh goodies and finished the afternoon with a stop off at the famous ‘Baby Cakes’ where we treated ourselves to a cookie sandwich (calorific but utterly divine) and a vegan chocolate cup cake which was surprisingly delicious.
