This post will be short and sweet. Short because I’m flying to New York City tomorrow with a girlfriend. And there are outfits to be tried on, ironed, packed… etc etc. And sweet because… well … tomorrow I’m flying to New York City with a girlfriend. And I’m excited. It’s my sixtieth birthday treat to myself. Albeit a few months late. But who cares? As my friend Elizabeth said when I asked her if she wanted to come along… “Autumn in New York. Sounds good to me.”
New York City
We’ve had our flights and hotel booked for a while. What will we do when we get there? We’ve done our homework. We’ve lots of ideas, and recommendations, and we’ve narrowed down what we don’t care about, and what we do. But as for making specific plans…. we’ve not made up our minds yet. We plan to walk a lot, and shop some. See a show, or maybe two. Visit some museums, we’re not sure which ones yet. And other than that… eat, sip wine… and enjoy just being there. 
Just being there will be great. 
So, my friends. I’ll be in touch in a few days. In the meantime. I am truly in a “New York State of Mind.” 

Love this Billy Joel song.

Styling My Anti-Haul Haul

I’m styling pieces from my anti-haul haul. And talking about the whole idea of hauls. Just when I was sure so that term was dead and buried.

    I get to "live in" New York City at least twice each year, when I visit my son and stay in his apartment in a Brooklyn brownstone. For a person who lived in Manhattan for a couple of years at the start of the 1970's, New York City today is a dream, and every sojourn there is even better than the last. I do not shop, other than for groceries and flowers; I just partake of daily life and the arts with my son and his friends and the other two families living in the brownstone. It is delightful and wonderfully exhausting. Have a lovely time!

  2. Enjoy and have a wonderful time! Great idea for your birthday!
    And please,tell us a lot of stories! And don't forget the photos! And a packing list!

  3. As others have noted, it's really hot here. And if I may make a suggestion: consider the prix-fixe lunch at Gotham Bar and Grill. Great value, great food, beautiful room. Have a wonderful time!
