I arrived at Café Mogador (101 St Marks Pl) just as they were opening at 9am. They offer a brunch menu; I recommend anything with the special Moroccan sauce! Before or after eating take the time to walk down St Marks Place a bit further – it cuts through an interesting, eclectic neighborhood.
I took a leisurely walk back to the hotel along the High Line. What a wonderful concept; locals are lucky to have it. The High Line offers some sun and great Hudson River views. In the warmer months you could even plan to hang out awhile. There are these really cool wooden chase lounge chairs built onto the old railroad tracks that used to run the length of the High Line. If you’ve garnered up enough strength from a hearty brunch, you can push the chair along the tracks to move it closer to your friends or away from strangers.
