I lived in New York for 11 years, as a city it is closer to my heart & soul than any other. I am fortunate enough to get back often, I enjoy the city the most in small, but very intense doses. Here is a perfect NYC day, recently spent.
11 am Brunch at Diner, Williamsburg
12 pm Perusing Brooklyn shops, galleries, street life
1 pm Visit to see the very lovely Anne McClain of MCMC in her perfume making studio, Greenpoint.
2 pm Ferry ride back to the city.
3 pm A spin through the Chelsea Galleries.
5 pm A drink and French Vogue at Peels in the East Village.
7pm Dinner at Barrio Chino on the Lower East Side.
9pm Dancing @ a Handsome Furs show at the Bowery Ballroom

Ah, Diner How I miss you!
Anne’s studio, where she crafts all the intoxicating MCMC Fragrances – as lovely and serene as she is!
The ferry was amazing! My beautiful friend Hana on deck. Us jaded old-timers were as giddy as tourists!
What could be better than Peels, french Vogue, and an ice-cold cocktail on a hot summer afternoon?
Capped off the day with a little dance party at the Bowery.
