Since my move to Hoboken a year ago, I rarely go into the city during the day on the weekends. This is partially due to the fact that I enjoy relaxing in my apartment on the weekends instead of commuting into the city but this Saturday, I got an opportunity to go to the MoMA (a museum on my bucket list) early in the morning before the museum opened (aka no crowds or lines). My mom and I jumped on the opportunity to see Edvard Munch’s The Scream, on exhibit until April 29th, and other captivating famous works of art which you might have seen on Instagram.
After touring the museum for several hours, we stopped by Sarabeth’s at 40 Central Park South. Famous for its brunch, I tried the pumpkin waffle with pumpkin seeds, raisins and strawberries. Absolutely delicious, and well worth the wait which was out the door by the time we left.
Once we finished eating, we walked by Bergdorf’s and headed downtown and stopped by the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale at 260 Fifth Ave. I make sure to go to this every year since her sample sales are full of crossbody bags perfect for commuting at half-price. What could be better?
After that we stopped by The Garage Antique Flea Market, a hidden gem that pops up on 25th Street between 6th and 7th Ave. The 2 floor parking garage fills with antique jewelry and home furnishings every weekend. You never know what pieces of treasure you’ll find for a good deal. After working up another appetite, we topped of the day at Pinkberry – the only frozen yogurt place I really enjoy – and tasted its yummy new Gingerbread flavor. Sounds like a perfect Saturday to me.
