I documented via photographs, which means that I don't remember exactly what stop each picture is off of (we walked several blocks around each stop, trying to head into neighborhoods we hadn't seen before even if we'd previously used that stop), but they're still nice, and I did take pictures of intersections when I wanted to remember where a particular store or restaurant was!
We started by getting off at Astor, as the first picture clearly demonstrates:
Astor is where I used to get off when I worked down at NYU a bunch.
A quick internet search reminds me that Grace Church, in the following picture, is on Broadway between 10th and 11th, so we must have wandered slightly north from Astor.
Anyway, this restaurant must have looked delicious to me, as I documented it carefully:
I guess I'll have to eat there sometime!
We passed a florist shop and I wondered what these very exciting flowers are:
We passed a neat little cobblestone side street...
We must have gotten back on the train at some point, hitting Bleecker and then Spring St., because the next pics are at
where we ate a $6 slice of what was advertised as "the best chocolate cake in the world."
I also made a note to myself to come back to this place,
because I am weirdly obsessed with crepe places, for no good reason, as they are usually not even that delicious.
Judging by the pictures and my rough memory, we walked from Spring down to Canal, during which time I logged several exciting looking places I wanted to return to and check out at a later date.
Also, exciting seafood.
We got back on at Canal St. and headed down to City Hall, the end of the line.
Alex and I wondered if this is where the first Duane Reade opened.
But then it started to rain, so I snapped a few final pictures and we headed home!
