Cafe Luxembourg and The Grand Bazaar NYC

A few weekends ago, with this amazing mild weather, I headed into the city on a Sunday. I love Sundays in the city as they are usually very calming. I headed up to the Upper West Side for some breakfast, and shopping at the Grand Bazaar NYC flea market. 

The gorgeous building above, The Dorilton, was completed in 1902 at a cost of $750,000. The building had separate servant and passenger elevators, filtered water, separate tenant storerooms and a provision for charging electric automobiles. 

The one- to four-bedroom apartments, four to a floor and renting for $100 to $300 a month, had long halls, unusual paneling and mirrored bathrooms. But there was marginal closet space and a skimpy bath-to-bedroom ratio, both typical of early apartments. 

I really enjoyed staring at this building for a while before I walked on my way to breakfast. What an absolute gem! 

I had wanted to try Cafe Luxembourg for a while, so today was the day.  
My eggs benedict were okay. The potatoes were totally yummy, I just felt it should have been a bit more fabulous than it was. The atmosphere was very New York, many locals dine here as well as the tourists.  

Cute card with your bill! I hate to say I don't think I will be back, there are so many other places to try in this area for a meal, but I am glad I did visit.  
While walking to the Grand Bazaar NYC more lovely architecture along the way!  
I really loved the details here. This city is going to make me take a class in architecture! It makes you become so interested when you walk around a city where it surrounds you!  
Detail everywhere!  

This is up close detail of The Ansonia building, which does offer apartments to rent or buy, and once housed the fabulous Babe Ruth. If I won the lottery, I would look for an apartment here!  
                                                            I just love these types of chairs!  
We are now at The Grand Bazaar, which is located at West 77th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenue. 
How fantastic are these coats? Love !!  
You will find a nice mix here, from vintage to artisans, and a great place for browsing!  
Just about anything can be found here!  
This was only $15 and if the colors were right, I would have bought it! What a steal! 
Who doesn't love a good vintage handbag?  
One of the great artisans at the bazaar is SPJ Jewelry who I was thrilled to meet. Her designs are very dainty, elegant and so unique. I purchased the rose gold earrings in this photo, they are just so darn lovely!  
It was hard not to purchase everything at this table!  

Love, love that half moon necklace. A great layering piece!  
For those who are looking for vintage jewelry, that can be found here as well. I was so proud of myself that I brought none home!  
Those cameos were talking to me, but I didn't listen!  
Fun vintage mixer!  
Records seem to be making a comeback, I see my local Barnes and Noble selling them now. That is pretty darn cool!  
I need to come back for some of these items, just love!  
This candle smelled AMAZING from Harlem Heirloom, I probably will be ordering from them online. I hate purchasing heavy items and then having to carry around all day.  
More original jewelry designs  
Very cool bag!  
Loved these designs with the Beatles, Snoopy and other famous characters
