Last week, I mentioned that the Brooklyn Bridge Park was one of my favorite spots in the city. Or one of my favorite spots just outside the city, more accurately. Brooklyn is just a hop, skip and subway ride away, but I don’t venture off The Island as much as I could or should.

My Favorite New York City Spots

Over the past week, I’ve teamed up with Marc Jacobs (via Glam) on a fun, collaborative Instagram project to showcase a few of my favorite spaces and places in New York City. It was in celebration of his new perfume, Marc Jacobs Honey.

New York, I Love You

I’m pausing from posts on personal style and Fashion Week today out of respect for the events on September 11.

A quick stop at Stumptown, my favorite local coffee shop, was essential. My head was pounding. A few replays and many […]

New to New York, Chapter 1

It’s been exactly one week since I “moved” to New York City. I say “move,” because I came here with just two suitcases, as evidenced below (you can read more about that here). Much of that time has been spent apartment-hunting and settling in at my new agency, but of course, there’s always time for coffee, […]
