“You like potato and I like po-tah-to. You like tomato and I like to-mah-to. Potato, po-tah-to, tomato, to-mah-to, let’s call the whole thing off.” When I listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, I find the utmost joy in hearing this particular verse. I imagine living in the New York as depicted in the 1989 classic When Harry Met Sally, madly falling in love with the city over and over again when I hear it. Am I the only one? I can’t be. The photos in this post are from one of our walks from Soho to Central Park. We visited Katz’s Delicatessen, the Strand Bookstore, the Flat Iron and ended up in Central Park / the Upper East Side. It was the warmest day of the week (about 96 degrees) and I remember constantly yelling for water. I get a little frantic in the heat.
At Katz’s Delicatessen early in the morning – no line!
One of the chefs made us sample a couple of meats. We decided to get the Reuben sandwich and, carnivores as we are, we devoured the sandwich in minutes.

Grabbing a burger at Union Square’s Shake Shack – At this point it had become so hot I couldn’t bare to eat. Of course the strawberry milkshake didn’t help either.
