Gallivanting in Flatiron

{In front of the Flatiron building}

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.
