I heart New York

We walked, ate, drank, looked, ate some more, strolled, shopped, gawked, sipped, and ate again. Intense is the best way to describe life as a New York City visitor. Here is a list of the best of the best from this trip: Best museum exhibit: The Loving Story at the International Center of Photography. Best meal: braised pork shoulder at Birreria in Eataly. Best drink: Gin and Tonic at Gaby in Hotel Sofitel. Best breakfast: Oatmeal and large latte at Le Pain Quotidien. Best hike no. 1: Crossing Brooklyn Bridge by foot. Best macarons: Maison LadurĂ©e. Best art: Kim Abeles' Smog Collectors at Museum of Art and Design. Best hike no. 2: The high line. Best home store: Ochre in Soho. Best art no. 2 Lee Nam Lee: Ming and Chung dynsasty paintings: crossover at MAD. Best craft store: Purl Soho. Best craft store no. 2: Tender Buttons. Best run: the path around the reservoir in Central Park. Of course there was much more, and much that was missed. I am already compiling a list for the next visit.


  1. This is the best " best of " list I have read for ever.

    And it makes me want to go to NYC immediately.

    Or at least have breakfast at an Au Pain Quotidien.

  2. Great photos Lotta! Makes me want to hope on the plane right now!

  3. It looks like you enjoyed a lot!

  4. OHHH YEH! Thanks for the vicarious pleasure, Lotta. -sus

  5. Beautiful photos.

    I'm going to New York in April. I've never ever been before.

    So looking forward to it. The main thing I want to do is visit the big galleries like MOMA and MAD and also see the Dinner Party. Maybe the Whitney.

    Thanks for your informative list.


I always love to hear from you! I read every word and cherish every thought, even if I am not always able to reply back. Thank you for visiting.
