Random art on buildings: gold figures crawling up this one.
Levain Bakery--you'd pass right by it if you didn't know what you were looking for--which we did because they have 6 oz cookies! Ryan's fave.

and their Mexican hot chocolate with chili oil and cinnamon!!
A city that will always have something to look at.

And since, percentage wise, most our meals were eaten here, one more photo at Sullivan
