New York, New York
Ah, New York – it stirs my soul and if I could figure out how to embed an MP3 player (or whatever I need) so Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ song Empire State of Mind could play in the background for a little mood music, I would be very happy – but this is far beyond my technological skills… Instead here is a link to the video.
My recent show in NYC for my Cici Bianca jacket line was a new venue for me and was held at the Essex House on Central Park South. This lovely hotel between 6th and 7th, faces the Park making for an absolutely perfect location.
Before seeing customers, I could go for an early morning walk by the pond -
or view an installation of Public Art.
What the heck???
After my day finished, I could wander down 5th to view the beautiful gowns in the windows of Bergdorf Goodman
along with the wonderful collection of Barbie Clothes on the corner of 58th & 5th.
There were evening strolls past Bloomingdales at 59th and Lexington
and for the APPRENTICE and CELEBRITY APPRENTICE fans…
Farther on downtown, the craziness of Times Square looks like this -
For Miss Remy I had to take a shot of this.
Because the UN was in session, New York’s Finest were out en masse – even on the steps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral!
By the way, I have never seen so many motorcades withBLACK SUVs…
I love my trips to New York and loved this one even more because of a new setting and a successful show. Yet the noise, the sights and smells and the masses of people can not only be exhilarating but exhausting. Thank heavens for the close proximity of Central Park. This serene oasis is an escape from the sensory overload of the city.
