DC and NYC

I'm off to Washington, DC and New York City next week! I haven't been to either in ages and this time, we've managed to blag a tour of the White House. The last time I was in DC (during the reign of King George W), it was for a protest march and it actually took me a little bit of time to realize that I no longer need to carry any resentment about the current occupant of the White House.

No particular plans for New York, except I definitely want to visit The High Line and the Met. I want to spend most of my time wandering around neighbourhoods, really. I've already done the more touristy things, so this time, wandering, getting coffee, pastries, poking into bookshops is the plan, as far as there is a plan. Also, eating lots of good food.

Obviously, I'm making a list of yarn shops. DC and NYC natives: tips, advice?

I'll be interested to see your report back from this trip - plenty of photos. We're off to New York and Washington later this year - but it will be a very touristy trip.

I have no yarn shop recs 'cause I've never gone to one in DC, even though I visit my sister there fairly often. There is a place that would be fun to try if you have time (and like chocolate)
