new york

25 Jun

i was in new york for a couple of days last week. i do love this city, and i managed to squeeze in a lot of things that have been on my to-do list for awhile.

a bike ride around central park. as i was getting the hang of it, i’ll admit i was in the pedestrian-only area. i got yelled at by three different guys for doing so – all of them short, ‘stocky’ and wearing adventure-wear. interesting.

a wander along the highline, a beautiful little park they have made out of an abandoned elevated railway. it starts in the meatpacking and finishes on 30th.

a drink at the bar at the top of the standard. this is the greatest bar i’ve ever been to (it is also the bar from ‘shame’). it does have some mighty strange toilets that must be seen to be believed. there was a big band playing all night and they served amazing cocktails (with names like ‘bang bang’ and ‘the golden shower’, we are quite nervous about submitting our bill to expenses). my new york colleague groaned that it was ‘full of goddam out-of-towners’, but as an out-of-towner myself, i had a blast.

shopping wise, i discovered ‘madewell‘ and may or may not have stumbled upon my dream handbag in bloomies.

i love ny
