New York in October - Part 4 - Brooklyn, Good Friends, NYC and an indian restaurant.

We ended our trip in New York City. Our first night we visited our favorite Indian restaurant, Surya, in the village. Funny we ended up sitting at the same table and had the same waiter as last time. I was delighted to see they had been growing runner beans and winter squash up the garden wall. We stayed in a charming apartment on 28th St, between 5th and Broadway. We had the most spectacular view of the Empire State Building.
On Saturday, despite my fear of bridges, heights and losing personal effects in places where they can't be retrieved, we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and met up with some good friends, Katie and Matt, who recently moved to Brooklyn. We spent the entire day walking, drinking, talking and eating. It was perfect. On our way to the bridge we stumbled across the Union Street Greenmarket. Amazing!
Sunday was our day to wonder. We took a walk on The Highline, through the Meatpacking district, and all over SOHO. We stumbled upon The Laguardia Community Garden (part 5 coming soon) and then had dinner at Balthazar. We split the roasted free range chicken. It was amazing. Then after a quick stop at Dean & Delucca we took a cab back to the apartment where we watched Swamploggers and packed our bags.
