  1. There's also a weekday greenmarket at the plaza at the State Building. Who knew?

  2. I saw the green market at the plaza's State Building today! I also Thank You for the rainbow of glorious suggestions for our weekend.

  3. I went to the Mount Morris Park Market on Saturday and got some of the most delicious white peaches I have ever eaten in my life. Thanks for the suggestion! Your blog is helping me figure out my new neighborhood.

    While I was over there, I noticed a church on 124th between 5th and 6th that is covered in vines, but seems to be the only building of its kind on that block, or in the area in general. What is going on with that?
