So we had a fun weekend with my mom. She flew in Thursday morning and was settling in the apartment right before the 'tornado' hit Prospect Heigths. We scrambled to mop up the water that seeped in around the air conditioners, but thankfully we were safe and sound. There was a lot of damage on our street and the surrounding neighborhood.
Friday was a restful day. We had facials in the morning at Mario Badescu and had lunch with a view at Bouchon in the Columbus Circle shopping center. We ate at the communal table which was fun because we got to people watch and see what others ordered as well.
Saturday we went to the green market at Prospect Park. It was fun to see all the dogs and toodle around. On Sunday after church and a delicious brunch at D'Orsay, we went to the synagogue where my great grandparents were married - Temple Emanu-El. They were setting up the Sukkot for the Feast of Tabernacles. The sanctuary was beautiful with teserae and gilding and tile. The stained glass windows were also beautiful.
