17 Sep 2011 –┬áCharlton-King-Vandam Historic District

Fri: dinner@Panca***good Peruvian food on 7th Ave with dishes from the fusion ethnicities that inhabit Peru, ingredients and techniques from Asia and EU. Thank you Kat & Greg for delicious dinner.

Sat: The Charlton-King-Vandam Historic District is bounded by Varick, Vandam, MacDougal and King Streets and is characterized by the quality of its Federalist and Greek Revival architecture. One of them is a lively Queen-Anne style building, 29 King Street Grammer School No 8 built in 1886 is now a block of condo. The whole building is a protected historic monument; very charming and lucky me who gets to stay here.

6th & 7th Avenues and the surrounding areas are colourful and interesting, well-worth walkabout on this cloudy afternoon. Even managed to get a walk-in and needed hair-cut for US $20/S$25!
