the egg-venture begins

Image

As many of you might know,  New York has been invaded by eggs,  a couple of hundred, 266 possibly rumored to be 268 to be exact or maybe not exact.. but somewhere there abouts, hidden in all 5 boroughs.

My youngest son is turning 18 soon,  his whole life ahead of him and away from home to find his own.  He and I have always gone on grand adventures:  we roadtripped across the West, we have collected minerals, geodes and fossils all over the Southwest, we have explored caves and mountains.   I will miss those times so much.

One last grand adventure…   How many eggs could we find together and how many more lessons could I teach him in navigating the world.  So our mission begins today in Little Italy and continues through the Lower East Side.

So many discoveries along the way,  Economy Candy on Rivington was overwhelming and wonderful all at once.

We will stop here for the first installment,  many more to come.  In the last few days I have been inside museums, barber shops, tattoo parlours, galleries, stores, bakeries, restaurants, hotels and others.  So,  stay tuned….

  1. Wow – fantastic eggs and even better send off adventure for you and your son. I didn’t realize the eggs would be decorated and large (like horses, cows, whales, etc). This is very cool. Thanks for showing the eggs – much easier for me than a trip to NYC!
