The Flatiron district is a bustling little hub of home decor stores, techies, and of course Eataly. My favorite thing to do is order a macchiato and people watch, then grab lunch at Il Pesce which has the freshest seafood and finally pick up fresh pasta to make dinner. I head South to 19th Street to Fish’s Eddy. They have the cutest kitchen stuff and great gifts for the cooks in your life. Next stop is always ABC Carpet & Home which to me is like a vacation. I go inside and get transported away to a far and peaceful place. I could never afford anything in there but I like to daydream. Inside the store, there are 2 of my favorite restaurants, Pipa and ABC Kitchen (previous post here). If I have room (which I always do) I make a stop at City Bakery for a cookie. They have been around for 20 years!! I still remember when they first opened-geez. And that pretty much sums up my favorite day in Flatiron.
