Ocean’s 8

I cannot cannot cannot wait to see Ocean’s 8 with my sister when it comes out.

The first time I saw this photo I laughed so hard – their facial expressions walking out of the subway, the body language, the outfits, the hair, it all makes me miss my sister so bad.

Here’s the official trailer for Ocean’s 8:

NYC typography: East Village edition

There’s so much interesting typography to be found in New York City, but my favorite area to spot some curious street signs, storefronts and logos is the East Village. This neighborhood has an urban, artistic “old New York” vibe, and the signage reflects that perfectly.

Let’s Dance

David Bowie passed away this week and this mural went up outside his apartment. I’m glad he was able to release one last album before cancer overcame him.

Happy 4 Years NYC

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.

Fall in NYC

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.)

Mums

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.

Last night, 9/11

911 nyc

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.
