New York LivingPosted: June 24, 2009 | |
I’ve been to NYC several times since I was a kid to visit family. I’ve always had to follow their agenda…which was fun don’t get me wrong…but I’ve never had the chance to explore it on my own. TOMORROW, I leave for NYC. I will be staying for a month to take classes and, more importantly, experience New York like I never have before. AND I will be experiencing all of this with my best friend…and my good friends who live outside of the city will be accompanying me on my excursions as well. So, to get to the point, I apologize in advance for being slack on the posts. I’ll be busy with my fashion drawing classes, visiting family, reeking havoc, etc. To make up for this, I’ve decided to compile some pictures of things I want to do/see and places I want to go. I’m focusing on Brooklyn because a.) I’ve NEVER explored Brooklyn EVER and b.) NYC is so huge, it’d be impossible to include it all. If you have any suggestions, pleaseeee feel free to share!
Brooklyn Flea Market is a mustttt
I’ve heard only good things about the vintage shops in Brooklyn. One in particular…Fluke…sounds perfect for a student budget shopper like myself. In Lucky Magazine, Rachel Comey says “Almost everything at this vintage shop is under $75.” Sounds like my kind of place! Here are some vintage shoppers in Brooklyn….
Kill Devil Hill is a vintage shop in Brooklyn with cheap stuff for decorating. Yay! Again…I’m searching for my new apartment. Rachel Comey describes it as “a den of industrial-revolution-era goodies.” Apparently, they have vintage bottles, buttons, lamps, etc….all will fit in perfectly with my “thrifty/shabby chic” look.
OAK: words cannot describe the perfection of this store…so I will post numerous pichasss.
…OTHER NYC PLACES…
Movies in Bryant Park
FINALLY. This is a restaurant I’ve been wanting to check out for AGES but never got a chance. The Spotted Pig.
I will post pictures after my trip and try to update as much as I can while I’m there!
