New York City, Family & Random Photos - 5/30/12 - 6/1/12

Lucky for me, my Brooklyn-residing sister-in-law was free and could met me in the city - score! Nothing's better than being with a native in New York City :-) We started at a coffee shop that she liked.
We walked around the city and ended up at my niece's school, at the end of her school day, where I snapped a few pictures of her teaching (she made me read the kids a story).
A couple nights later, our last night in NYC, my niece and her husband met us for dinner at this crazy restaurant of their choice :-) So fun.
 The rest of the photos are random shots taken while wandering around  the city for a few days.
Flat Iron Building
 Street Vendors
Sweat shop?
A delicious small meal here.
 Sadly, no time for the Guggenheim this trip.
Pigeons on Sherman
This was taken at Mustang Sally with our bartender, Liam. He's from Cork, Ireland and has been in the U.S. for 27 years, and at Mustang Sally for 17 years. Best Irish whiskey? Red Breast. Best sellers? Bushnell & Jamieson. And the best cocktail in this country according to Liam is the Maker's Mark Manhattan:
3 1/2 oz bourbon
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
1/2 oz dry vermouth 
splash of bitters
(May substitute campari for sweet vermouth & omit dry vermouth.)
Our last night, and as usual, we ended our evening at the hotel lounge.
Cheers to you, NYC - until next time.
