Big Apple

We spent last week in New York City--not for the apples but, happily, apples there were.

New York is a great enough city to draw all good things to it; moreover it sits near farms and orchards in the fertile Hudson Valley, Long Island, and New Jersey.

Travelers who want to touch the land and lives of the places they visit could do worse than to visit markets where local food is sold.

I found last week's Tydeman's apples at a green market on 92nd and York in Manhattan (the photo was shot at the Bronx Zoo).

Several other varieties, including the green beauty above, are from the Union Square Greenmarket. I'll review those this month.

The view above is north from Ellis Island.
