Things I Did in NYC

The view from our apartment (and breakfast)

Navigated the city all by myself without getting lost once, ate ice cream for breakfast, walked til I had blisters on both feet, tried on a dozen vintage dress, bought two, stopped for midnight pizza slices, refused to stand in line for a fitting room at Urban Outfitters, was the least metal person at a very metal show (can you spot Tom in the photo pit?), hung out backstage at Irving Plaza, took sneaky photos in the Lyell dressing room, had lunch at Curly's (thanks for that recommendation!), loved No Relation Vintage on the LES, got stopped on the street by a tourist asking for directions, was actually able to give directions, ate kung pao at VP2 not once but twice, watched a Joe Strummer documentary, sat on a park bench and people watched, sat on a park bench and dog watched, saw my first daffodil of the season, hung out with old friends and made new friends.

With that first photo, you captured my heart. I LOVE new york super fudge chunk ice cream from ben and jerry's. It is my favorite ice cream ever. You sound like you had so much fun, glad your trip went well!

Responding to your last post and this one - yeah, our vintage is usually too expensive for what it is. I usually stick to Beacon's Closet/Buffalo Exchange for that reason. There's a few local consignment shops too - it's a bummer. I do like No Relation but I find it hard to sort through (like a Salvation Army) but with midrange prices.

I am glad you had an awesome time! That show looks fun.

And you have a waaaay better sense of direction than I do.

What show was that?

Ollie Otson said...

Ooo! I love all of these. I can't wait to go back to New York, and when I do, I'm sure you'll be able to give me all the hot spots. ;)

Amanda said...

sounds like you had a blast! I love the little collage of photos and summary, I guess NY really is full of so many things to do!

there's another store very similar to NO RELATION called vintage style, if you loved no relation, you would loved vintage style, this store is has more clothes but its all packed, all least in the women section
have fun!

the photos are amazing! awesome that you had a great time in NYC. On another note, we just got your Tom's book in to our library at work - it's fantastic - I keep wanting to steal it away from our art team!

Mmm, Ben & Jerry's. Looks like a lot of fun, I can't wait to see the dresses.
