Postcards from New York :: Day 2
Hitty Sparrow liked this building she saw today – it looked as if it would fit in nicely in Paris…and it has a rooftop garden. Plus…can you spy the Empire State Building?
Today she visited Gulliver’s Gate, which is an HO scale replica of important (and imaginary!) world landmarks. (The link will give you a better description.) Hitty Sparrow was delighted to find that, in this world, she was giant sized! She “traveled” many places, including Paris:
Do you know about the Atomium? It was, like the Eiffel Tower, built for a World’s Fair. You can read more about it here!
Hitty Sparrow was tired of posing. (Can you see her pained expression in front of London Bridge? Hittys get crabby too sometimes…) Lunch at Brown’s Bagels provided some much needed sustenance. Hitty Sparrow was anxious to try a real New York bagel and it did not disappoint. See how happily she posed, because she knew she was about to eat:
An exciting discovery this afternoon at the hotel! Hitty Sparrow saw the Empire State Building from her window:
Ah, the beauty of a Spring evening in Madison Square Park:
Tomorrow, Hitty Sparrow will journey home and tell Hitty Jean all about her adventures in New York City. Hitty Jean had to stay behind, as her arms are much too loose for travel. But that is a story we will have to save…
…’til next time…
