Going to New York

This week is going to be slow since I'm getting ready to go to New York for ICFF and the National Stationery Show. I'm excited to meet some of the people that i only ever talk to over the internet including some of the other Apartment Therapy editors.

Also, I haven't been to New York in about 5 years. I'm going to look so California. I know that's a ridiculous thing to say, but I think it's true. I mean, I'm not going to show up in a juicy sweatsuit and flip flops, but in my own way i think I'm pretty california.

Anyway, what shouldn't I miss? I'll be staying in Fort Greene and in Manhattan for the shows and the parties.

I have never had better choc. chip cookies then in New York. So eat them, a lot of them, every where you go get one and eat it.

See if you can pick up a Conran's catalog, or at least go by the store. lv MoM

now i REALLY want you, abby, jonathan, and gregory to wear juicy sweatsuits the entire time you all are in NYC. a different color for every day. and gregory's should say JUICY on the butt and down the pant legs. that would make my day--no, YEAR.
have fun in ny! i expect you and abby to have a drink or four in my absence... ;)

Moxie Spot in Brooklyn - 81-83 Atlantic Ave. (718-923-9710)
- yummy healthy food in a fun local hang-out kind of atmosphere

the usual: staten island ferry (great views), Central Park, The Met, The Whitney, Little Itlay, Williamsburg, 5th ave (upscale shopping and 5th & 51st - the H&M megastore), Clinton Hill, street fairs and so forth.
