Having an extra couple of days allowed me to go in search of the vid camera i was looking for. So armed with "well informed" address' from little Sis, i embarked on the subway and headed for chinatown / little italy / jewish quarter area. However the first stop was to a pickle shop we had seen on the Travel program, which they raved about. The location turned out to be a cross between a 2nd hand shop and pawn shop, anyway it wasnt there. Fortunatley I accidently found it a block down on the way to the chinatown booking stn ( the pickles are damm hot).
I stopped for lunch at Lombardinis pizza restaurant, which is well known and plays non stop Sinatra all day. i wasn't going to second guess the music with the owner, besides you need some Sinatra every so often iand i decided today was it and since this place is the kinda place his friends would visit.i didnt want to sleep with the fishes!! but anyway, the pizza was excellent so no probs there.
So back on the trail for the camcorder . I was directed to a place on 2nd Ave where they supposably had 5. The shop was an entrance leading to a house up stairs. i decided against going up. and the graffiti told me noy to as well. I heard a voice shout " Hey you Mupper Pucker" least i think thats what he said. Either way i decided time to leave and headed for the nearest tube.
My sister is looking for a 4 bedroom House mmmmmm.
Later that night, against my better judgment i went to eat and the Hard Rock Cafe (it was local and still raining). The food was supprisingly good, the service was dire, (15 minutes before i got served at the table), but it gave me the chance to check out all the memorabilia. Even my nephew David would have been impressed They had rock guitars from legends
. Sorry Pete no Nolans stuff that i could find.
