Today we walked down and across Central Park to the Upper East Side in order to catch the lunch special at the Heidelberg Restaurant. We were also going to check out the Neue Galerie, a museum of German art, but it was closed, so that will have to wait for another time. They have a lot of Gustav Klimt, I'm told!
The Upper East Side has a different vibe from Morningside Heights/ the UWS. It is overrun with tall children wearing pressed private school uniforms, their posh and sunglasséd mothers, and droves of nannies. Dogs come in one breed: foofy, the streets are ultra clean and crowded, and occasionally a chandelier will sparkle at you through an apartment window. And every residential building has a doorman sporting gold tassel and trim.
