That’s Bubby’s, where we gladly found an outdoor table to have coffee and slices of a fabulous house-made pie, a welcome pit stop after walking the length of the High Line. Whitney Museum is nearby. took a long weekend hop to New York City just for grins.  No agenda.  No pressure.  Weather was fantastic for late Spring.  The following is a series of random shots from the Roosevelt Island tram to the south end of the High Line, where we found Bubby’s (73 Gansevoort St,) for pie and coffee.  Bubby’s is just east of the Whitney Museum.  Original photography by Michael Shess,, please credit.
Roosevelt Island Tramway is an aerial tramway in New York City that spans the East River from 59th St. and 2nd Ave. and connects to Tramway Plaza on Roosevelt Island.  The tram (every 15 minutes) connects the East River island to the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The tramway is the first commuter aerial tramway in North America, having opened in 1976.
Tourists snap away on the Roosevelt Island Tram as it heads toward the famed narrow island in the middle of the East River.  Is it fun crossing in winter? “NO!, we’re told.”
That’s New York.
