A Re-visit to The Doors of the Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is famous for many of the best museums, colleges and home to some of the world's most wealthy people. I love to just walk around the side streets and just see what I find. I always feel New York City is best when you don't have an agenda, and you let your feet guide you.
inside doorway of the Neue Galerie 
I loved the lantern's on the side and actual door designs 
I stood in front of this building a long time....just staring at it's incredible character...
I think everyone can appreciate the beauty of this architecture 
one stunner after another.......
doors can be almost magical, can't they?
of course in NYC, everything is magical, isn't it ?
many of these buildings are homes to businesses like doctor's offices 
This one would probably open to one gorgeous building inside 
The Upper East Side still represents the classy "old" New York as apartments can be less expensive here because of the lack of subway service. 

Would you like to live on the Upper East Side? I feel it would be an experience like none other..........

Throwback Thursday "Happy Thanksgiving Masking"

Lots going on in this vintage photograph from Thanksgiving. There was such a thing called "Thanksgiving Masking" where mostly homeless/poor children would wear masks and went door-to-door asking for handouts. Sounds pretty crazy to me, but I guess it made sense to them. I love the fact you can get a whole Thanksgiving dinner for .40 ! And how about the "Tables Reserved for Ladies" sign? I really love when a photograph such as this one has so much to tell. Before you know it, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving but again. Where has this year gone?

A Sweet Trip to Dylan's Candy Bar

I don't think I have taken you to Dylan's Candy Bar in a while, so let's go for a sweet ride! Dylan's is owned by Dylan Lauren, daughter of Ralph, and has been open in NYC at this location since 2001. Dylan's favorite movie was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (mine as well) and even had her wedding a "candy" theme!  
Lots to see here folks so let's get moving. Did you hear Hello Kitty is not a cat? I think that is rather silly, and love her anyway! Great items here, and I was so good not to purchase any!  
Adorable for the fall season, don't you think?  
Love the displays at Dylan's and it smells so great in this place!  
Everyone needs a pair of candy pants, no ?  
You can go crazy with the selection here, and we are only on the first floor!  
Love this !!  
More cute Halloween cookies!  
I was never a fan of the gummy candies, and with the selection here, that is a good thing!  
Is it possible to have a pretty skull cookie? Yes it is !!  
The bark candy is really good and she has so many various flavors.  
Never was a peep fan, but if you dip them in chocolate, I might be !  

Sriracha Chocolate Licorice - Hot stuff !  
Gee, I never saw so many pretty skulls in all my life! Too cute !  
We are heading downstairs now  
Lots of NYC items to take home to family and friends  
Okay, I LOVED these but kept my cool and did not purchase any of them  
Everyone needs chocolate iced doughnut earrings, don't they?  
So cute !!  
I really wish they would start making neat phone covers for the Samsung line. These are really sweet!  
You must have fudge in a candy shop! 
These cakes made out of candy would be fun at any party! 
How pretty is this one? 
Sorry for the blurry on this photo, but since I love Kit Kat, had to show you 
Looks like a wedding cake!! 
Chocolate covered pretzels are great but you add sprinkles and you have something really special !
The candy counter downstairs is pretty good, I must say
I am a big fan of coconut and these looked fabulous
How can you not choose an item here? Impossible! 
Homemade chocolate covered graham crackers are always better than store bought 
Of course they have a chocolate waterfall, makes perfect sense 
A really fun store 
I love popping in here every so often. They do sell online as well, but I hate to pay the shipping for the chocolate items. If you are a candy lover, I would say this is a must stop when in the city!!
