NYC: Highlights from Day 2

A, at a LES playground with Grandma
Sunday we headed to Central Park in the morning. We dodged thousands of pink tee shirt-wearing Breast Cancer advocates and managed to check out three different playgrounds. Around noon we walked back to the Upper East Side, where we had pizza at Patsy's. Josh's parents joined us around halfway through our meal and spent the rest of the day with us.

Shortly after lunch we hopped on the subway to the Lower East Side, where we witnessed (but did not participate in) the International Pickle Day. Z and I took the "Getting By" tour from the Lower East Side Tenement Museum (wonderful and informative, as expected) while Josh and his parents walked around and let A nap in her stroller. Then we hit another playground (where, amazingly enough, Josh ran into a college classmate) and had a dinner of pastrami sandwiches, matzo ball soup and latkes at Katz's Deli.
Mmm, matzo ball soup
