There’s so much interesting typography to be found in New York City, but my favorite area to spot some really interesting street signs, storefronts and logos is the East Village. This neighborhood has a very artistic, urban, old New York vibe, and the signage reflects that perfectly.
I walked by David Bowie’s Soho apartment yesterday, and let me tell you – it was an emotional experience. I’ve been weepy all week, this has been tough and I’m not one to get emotional in regards to celebrities. I’ve listened to David Bowie for so long that if there were ever a playlist of my life, it would be sprinkled with David Bowie tracks. I fondly remember mixing glitter into my nail polish when I was a girl, creating my own shades and giving them names like Ziggy Star Dust and Space Oddity. We lost a true artist, an innovator, someone who always took things too far, and it breaks my heart to pieces. Safe travels gentle soul. #fuckcancer
I love love love this Lets Dance mural that’s gone up right next to his building.
Happy New Year! 2015 was a great year for me, tough but very rewarding. I’m looking forward to 2016 being equally if not more amazing.

Big City Dreams mural, by artist Triston Eaton, can be found down in Nolita (Broom and Mott).
I moved to this amazing city 4 years ago. As cliche as it sounds, some days it feels like I’ve lived here my entire life, and some days I feel like I don’t know this city at all.
When asked, I always advise others to visit NYC during the Fall. It’s so beautiful this time of year—not too hot, not too cold, there’s so much going on, it’s the perfect time to explore and hang out.
Getting into the spirit of Halloween, apartments and townhouses in NYC transformed into their own personal House of Horrors this past week.
(Nothing scares me more than the woods though. I’ve probably seen too many bad 80’s movies or was traumatized by the Blair Witch Project—either way, I hate the woods, especially after dark, and avoid them at all costs.)
These flowers are all over Manhattan right now and I adore them. Just another thing that makes me happy that Fall has arrived. I really am loving the cooler weather. Ask me that in a few more weeks and I’m sure my feelings will have changed.
I walked down to One World Trade Center last night from Chelsea (with a pit stop at a very divey bar in the West Village.) It’s become a yearly tradition to walk along the Westside Highway every year and gaze up at the twin lights, which are so bright that they appear to be shining into infinity. This year was special as there was access to the memorial park at night, so visitors could leave flowers and pay respects at the water fountains. It was highly emotional, too much to put into words even.
I still haven’t been up on the observation deck at One World Trade yet, but it’s high on my to-do list.
