Yesterday, Henry and I headed uptown to meet friends at Serendipity 3, a popular restaurant and tourist attraction. We were supposed to have a dessert there with Colm, Mimi and Malichai, her eight-year-old nephew who was in town from Indiana. Having never been there, we were under the impression we could just simply walk in. This, however was not the case as the restaurant has a two and half hour wait and does not allow strollers.
While our names were on the wait list we took the Roosevelt Island Tramway. I had not been on the tram since 2002 and it offers a very scenic view of the city. We never got dessert at Serendipity, but had cupcakes at a Magnolia Bakery outpost in Grand Central instead. It was a nice outing for Henry and me.
