I spent a whirlwind day in New York City this past spring to celebrate a good friend's birthday. One of the purposes of this trip was to see the Spider-Man musical, which was still in previews at the time. The signs were everywhere!

The show was... interesting... I wouldn't call it good, in fact, it didn't really make much sense. Even the name of the show is puzzling. After seeing it, I have no idea who or what turned off the dark. Someone must have turned on a light at some point, but it wasn't the one over my head. There were some very cool things in it: the webspinner girls at the beginning, the comic book set pieces, the villains' costumes and the performance of the Green Goblin were pretty spectacular. And I would recommend seeing it for the amazing wire work, especially the fight scenes between Spidey and the Green Goblin. But if you want to be entertained with a coherent storyline or memorable songs, then you should see something else.

We visited the Apple Store.

Saw the fun subway signs and weird buildings.

H & H Bagels was pretty awesome, if no frills. They had fresh bagels, cream cheese and some drinks, but they had no coffee and were not located anywhere near a coffee shop. Sadly, H & H has since closed for business.

We went to the Jekyll and Hyde Club for lunch, which had talking inanimate objects and decent food.

I liked the way these two businesses were side by side. I wish we had time to have some noodles while there. Of course, we hit a Starbucks.
Two of my favorite things. A food truck and a duane reade.

This sign contains so much delicious food! Biscotti! Cupcakes! Soup! Risotto! and Oatmeal! I don't know why we didn't stop there!

This was a great sign that we came across on the day of the supposed Rapture.
Goodbye New York! Hope to see you soon!
