NY: Canal Street, Little Italy, Maker Bots, and Fish ‘n Chips


(That photo above is not Canal Street. It’s near Larra & Ari’s place before we hopped on the subway.)

Yesterday after we finished up work we took the subway down to Canal Street and wandered around a bit. I really really want to tell you the story of the cloak and dagger adventure we went on that included a whispering Asian woman, block-by-block handoffs to more Asian women, secret doorways, massage parlors, and hidden rooms full of knockoff designer handbags, but I can’t. Bummer too, because it’s a great story.

But here are some photos of our walk through Little Italy and Nolita:




We stopped in at the Maker Bot store in the Village to check out their 3D printers. So cool!



Those are the spools (above) of the plastics that the 3D printers print with. We watched them print some cool bendy bracelets, and then they gave us a couple to take home. I think Kevin has a 3D printer in his future.


After Maker Bot we stopped for another great cup of coffee at Joe – the Art of Coffee. I took this photo right around the corner from the coffee shop and I didn’t focus in time but I love it anyway:


Nice lines:


We met up with Ari for a dinner of fish ‘n chips at A Salt and Battery. We had haddock and pollock and chips  (all sustainable seafood, no trans fats), with a side of fried brussels sprouts and a Stella Artois. Quite good!
