I met my friend and we talked our way through Central Park, myself noticing a lighter step. Headed down Madison, I took her to Laduree, then FAO Schwarz, and then just sitting to talk on the edge of the park. As I walked back down 5th Avenue (A lot of walking - I know) this warmness flooded over me. I always get reminders of how much I am in love with this city. When I was little I would visit this Avenue in this part of town to visit my dad's work and see the luxury designer stores come to life. Someday I hope to be able to shop in these places and not just admire the fine pieces of leather and beautiful shoes.
I love 5th Avenue yes, but Madison Avenue north of 55th Street is one of my favorite walks. Try it sometime, you might find a hidden treasure.
Happy Exploring. Xoxo
