This is my favorite Shake Shack, and the very original one. I love the lights, the outdoor seating, being in the middle of the city. They recently redid the building. but it looks pretty much the same. We fed, bathed and packed up the baby for a little Tuesday night dining outside.
It was our first open water swim practice for Team in Training. Got on the subway at 6 am yesterday and headed out to Coney Island. It was a really nice morning, the water was just cold! But made it through the 45 minutes of swimming. A quick run on the board walk and headed home. Unfortunately suffered the same “injury” as last year. The skin on my chest was rubbed raw by the zipper on my shirt in the salty water. Darn it, I’ll never learn!
Was just plain starving when I got home, so we headed to Tortaria for tortas, a Mexican style sandwich. We had the pulled pork with avocado, Chihuahua cheese, summer cilantro, and roasted peppers. And a bag of chips and guacamole. It totally hit the spot, though the guac was a little spicy, even for us!

We walk the High Line quite a bit, it’s an easy way to get to the gym. A zoo popped up along the way, in one of the back/roof of an apartment building. They’ve added monkeys, a giraffe…
I checked out the website, thehighlinezoo.com, and it led me to some sort of art site. No real details on the zoo. But it’s been fun walking by.
