It was time to meet up with Misha, my long lost lover of a best-friend who recently came back from the Dominican Repulic after another adventure. (Talk about a run on sentence) We haven’t really been spending much time together to be honest, and it was about time we actually made plans and stuck with them.
Since I had time to spare before our meeting time, I headed to a place I have been dying to visit, just never made the time to. Shame on me as a New Yorker, This is one of the most beautiful escapes I have bumped into in the city. I didn’t even get lost, like I usually tend to do.
Jane’s Carousel closes at 6pm, and I happened to make it just in time, 5:50pm to catch the last spin on this merry-go-round. It was so adorable and I found myself getting super excited like any kid would. And since lately I’ve been taking myself out on dates… I actually have the time to focus on what I like, and Jane’s Carousel was definitely a thumbs up.
Also, I don’t knwo if you guys, have noticed, but there’s a big New York Egg Hunt going on… I this little hunt has me running around learning new places of the city. I got lucky and found 5 more eggs at this point!
I also bumped into this pretty awesome food truck with a great cause.
New York-based Drive Change offers formerly incarcerated youth the opportunity to serve food with a side of social justice. With the competitive job market, finding employment as a former youth inmate can be very difficult, & a lack of income can lead back to a life of crime. Through this food truck program, young adults can start with a clean slate & get a chance at employment, life skills & a future.
I ordered 4 little skivers, that were like pancakes and had chicken in the inside. It was pretty good, and not to mention the employees were super sweet. I wish them all this all the best in their future comings.
Check out a few pics from my little solo adventure…. Now it’s time to meet up with Misha.
Later my loves.
