Adventure: Florisity on 19th Street near 5th Avenue. As I walk into this fancy florist, I suddenly feel underdressed. Like a tourist in a gothic church, all I was missing was a fanny pack and a family of four.
The room quiet and open with slate colored walls stretched into the cathedral ceilings. Unique vases, pots, statues and scattered flowers filled the room. I want to see more flowers, because you can never have enough flowers, but the flowers here are hand picked, specially selected with a vision in mind. I walked in to find something springy and fun for Elana and walked out with a mini family of flowers in a square vase guaranteed to cheer up any desk on a dreary day.
