Thursday Morning on Lex, on the Upper East Side

Donohues, nyc Photo by myself on Lexington Avenue around 64th Street, on the Upper East Side.

A man stood in the doorway of Donohue's Steak House on Lexington Avenue, Thursday morning. He enjoyed a quiet moment.

Usually, Lexington Avenue is hustling and busy. The street is lined with stores and restaurants. Offices and apartments occupy the floors above street level.

New Yorkers refer to this street as 'Lex', as in 'take me to 53rd and Lex', when speaking to a cab driver. We don't have time for the additional syllables! We have people to see, things to do!

The 'A' rating in the window refers to cleanliness, only. All the restaurants in New York are inspected by the city and graded an 'A', 'B' or 'C'.

If you have plans to dine out, you can look up the grade of the restaurant online, but this has nothing to do with what the food tastes like or the decor. Click here for the city website.

I'm still recovering from the jetlag. I wish everyone a wonderful Friday.

Ah, thanks Rose!
Who'd think that it'd take so long to get back on track?

Happy Sunday to you!
