musketeers take manhattan – episode 3

July 12, 2011

Carlo’s Bakery & Central Park

 Our NYC Must Do List contained only four items.  The first two were things that Rosario and I suggested.  As much as Angelica enjoyed those adventures, she only cared about seeing two things: Carlo’s Bakery and Central Park. 

Ang has long been a fan of the TLC show Cake Boss, and even though it’s not in Manhattan, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit Carlo’s Bakery in nearby Hoboken, NJ.  We only have photos of the outside because Ang didn’t want to go inside.  She knew it would be too crowded and overwhelming for her in the store.  Angelica contented herself with standing on the sidewalk under the familiar sign, especially when the storefront windows confirmed her prediction of wall-to-wall customers. 

After that, we conquered our last adventure on our Must Do List: Central Park!  Rosario met up with a friend and headed in one direction, while Angelica and I sauntered through Strawberry Fields to enjoy some one-on-one time.  We didn’t try to explore the whole park – that would have been insane! – but we did enjoy a nice stroll before finding a patch of grass on which to plant ourselves. 

Don’t let the photo of Angelica pouting fool you – we had a great time sitting on a little hill watching the world go by.  The pout came when Ang discovered a mosquito bite on her ankle and proceeded to bemoan the fate of her “poor, poor ankle… poor little ankle” for a good five minutes.  (The woman is so melodramatic!  I wonder where she gets that from… certainly not from me!)  There really is nothing like spending an afternoon enjoying nature as it is meant to be enjoyed: surrounded by a city.  And in spite of the ankle distraction, we did just that!

    You guys went to Carlo’s Bakery!!!! I wish I could have been there just to see Ang’s expression. I’m sure she was trilled. Its okay if she did not go inside, she’s seen the inside on TV.
