This day was by far my best in New York (maybe of the whole holiday – sorry whales!).

A fatal combination of farmer’s markets, walking, food, sunshine, food again and lots of dog photographs – how predictable…

We accidentally stumbled across Union Square Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning, which having been in Puerto Rico for 6 months is like stumbling across an oasis in the desert – but an oasis filled with organic fruits and vegetables (and more dogs).

We also visited my favourite building in the city, the Flatiron Building, and sat in Madison Square Park to admire it. For those of you who don’t know, Madison Square Park is home to Shake Shack, now having explained the hype around their food to Jack, and him being disgusted by people’s fickleness and general willingness to queue for burgers and chips, I found myself gravitating towards the menu while his back was turned.

Now, in my defence guys there was no queue and I knew we wouldn’t be back here anytime soon – and it is irrelevant that it was only 10.30 in the morning…

And it really was as amazing as you would hope – softly steamed brioche bun with a juicy patty and a lathering of cheese. Truly one of the best decisions of the whole trip (again, sorry whales) – and I feel lame saying it but I would definitely queue next time – sorry Jack!
