The Big Apple

We may have traversed 5 continents but we finally made it to NYC!

After arriving at JFK and a somewhat tame cab ride (compared to Tijuana or Bangkok), we arrived at Stirling and Cassandra's apartment somewhere between SoHo and the Lower East Side - an area they affectionately deem "No Man's Land."

However,with chilled wine in hand and sunshine the City had not seen in days, one had to admire the view:

If you like off the beaten path types of places, consider Pegu Club which one would hardly give a second look as it is tucked away and not given much curb appeal fanfare - but inside the swanky setting tells a different story:

Another place we were taken by our hosts was Madame Geneva's which has all the great couches and lounge settings that NYC apparently has a thing for and people flock to.

We also hit Kittichai for dinner (Interpretive Thai as they are calling themselves) and Puck Fair for some after dinner drinks - by the end of the evening (or late night if you want to be specific), we were all feeling no pain.... and this was just our first 5 hours in the Big Apple.
