All posts in new york

While most of the country has been experiencing a heat wave, things have been very up and down in New York and even in Sag Harbor, where I spent last week. I feel like I have to have three seasons of clothing on hand at any given time. But at least there are some good […]

The questions I’m asked most often on Instagram are “where should I go in New York” and “do you have a guide”. People haven’t been to the city in years due to the pandemic so they are planning trips and want to know where to stay and most often, where to eat. I don’t have […]

Last year, someone I follow on Instagram posted a few photos just inside 973 Fifth Avenue. The decor looked very intriguing but I couldn’t find much about the house online then. When I posted an exterior photo of the front door in my Instagram Stories last week, a kind follower alerted me to the fact […]

I wrote about these connected houses almost exactly five years ago and now they are available for the first time in 22 years. Architects Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons of Fairfax and Sammons have put 183-185 West 4th Street on the market for $7.5 Million. If you don’t mind living across from a tattoo parlor, you’ll […]

I was going through old post when I came across the beautiful Park Avenue apartment of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels decorated for Christmas from the November/December 2016 issue of Veranda. I love the elegant details they’ve added to each room and thought it was definitely worth reposting. I’ve combined those photos with non-holiday photos from Architectural […]

When I posted about A Perfect Murder last week, I mentioned that one of the locations used was Salutation House in Glen Cove, Long Island. It sits on a 46-acre private island also named Salutation and was for sale in 2017. It’s been used for a few television shows and movies so I thought it […]

Long time readers and Instagram followers will know that I love the wardrobe Gwyneth Paltrow wears in the 1998 film A Perfect Murder from director Andrew Davis which also stars Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen. I don’t want to give anything away for those who haven’t seen it but I came across this description on […]

I’ve posted about the fashion brand Another Tomorrow a few times but had yet to see it in person until yesterday. I had the pleasure of attending their Fall 2020 press preview and had a personal walk-through of the collection by founder Vanessa Barboni Hallik at their new store at 384 Bleecker Street. She founded […]

Summer is not my season so I’m been working on a lot of projects (the reason for the radio silence) and biding my time until fall. I do have to say that the city is looking lush and beautiful though. I love all the green and white plantings I saw on Fifth Avenue Friday. There […]

The Met Cloisters

07 . 20 . 21

After my field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum a few weeks ago, I stopped by The Met Cloisters. I love the quiet beauty of the cloister garden and I try to visit once or twice a year. “The Cloisters, a branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is America’s only museum dedicated exclusively […]

Now that we can go places again, I’ve been trying to check off some of the places I have been wanting to explore in New York. Last Friday, I took a field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum which is the oldest building in the borough of the Bronx and run by the National […]

I can’t believe we’re in June already. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun again. There are so many things going on in New York right now and about to happen so I’ve rounded up the best for you. I haven’t been to the MoMA since I went to the preview of the […]

I always pass by this townhouse at 46 East 73rd Street on my walk to Madison Avenue and Central Park. I’ve long admired the glossy black door and topiaries so when the holiday decorations from 2019 stayed up for all of last year, I decided to investigated who owned it. Turns out that it’s Gayfryd […]

One of the most exciting collaborations of fashion and design is launching for VIP customers early and then to the general public on Tuesday, May 11th. Schumacher fabrics are gracing five classic shoe styles from Margaux. I was lucky to be sent the Ballet Mule and I just ordered the the Demi Ballet Flat. They […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

April in New York

04 . 19 . 21

Rumors of New York’s death have been greatly exaggerated. The city has been fully operational since last summer but it’s really come to life this spring thanks to the vaccines. It mirrors the blooming of the flowers and trees which is putting everyone in a great mood. We all predict that the city will be […]
