Yo! - Japanese Street Food in NYC

Yo! is a Japanese Street Food and Sushi place in New York City. Yo! is located at 23 West 23rd Street in the Flatiron District. I had visited a location in London and was so happy when I saw it opened in NYC. It is the cutest little place with counter style and some booth tables. This long conveyor belt has different foods that pass in front of you that you can grab yourself and eat. There are some dishes that you must place order with your server. The plates are color coded and prices run from $3.50 to $8.00. At the end of your meal they count the plates by color and work out your bill. Make sure you leave room for dessert! Obviously not the best Sushi you will have in NYC but the experience and fun you have is worth it. I loved my choices (see captions below). Oh and make sure you have some Sake, it will make your experience so much more fun. Yo! Yo! Yo! New York Style.

Macy's 2017 Flower Show - Carnival


Macy's Flower Show 2017 Presented "Carnival" at their New York City Herald Square location. 
As I walked by and admired the beautiful window displays I just could not wait to enter and see what Macy's Magic was in store for me. The Flower Show is from March 26, through April 9, 2017. 


As I entered Macy's I was hit with the beauty of a vintage "Grand Carousel". It turned and showed beautiful flower displays. 

 It seems like the Carousel ride characters have gotten away.........
 The Unicorn was majestic as it pranced up and down proudly displaying beautiful flowers.
 The Rooster with it's vibrant colors stood proud.
 The Lion was not as mean as it looks.....



 These two are adorable with their barrels going down and exposing their beautiful flowered undergarments.

Victoria'sSecret Flagship in NYC - A Retrospective

 Recently Victoria"s Secret opened a New Flagship store on Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street in NYC.
As you walk around the store there are beautiful costumes from the December 5, 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from Paris. On the 3rd Floor there is the Victoria's Secret - A Retrospective that showcases some of the outrageous fabulous works of art that the VS Models wore. There are Design boards with fabrics and beads and some Swarovski jewels to show you a peak into the designing of the costumes. Along the stairwell there are pictures of the models and background voices of them complimenting and talking to each other and describing their costumes.  There is also a Photo Booth that will take your picture by a tiny costume and Wings! (No I did not do it as the camera was broken) hahaaha..... If your phone needs charging make sure you stop down in the basement to the "phone chargers" in The Pink Section.

I love being a Tourist in My Own City and sharing with you all. Enjoy xoox
