Around the corner from where I work, this is another beautiful space with great food and great drinks. I like the Nathaniel Moore - you tell the bartender what your favorite spirit is, and he’ll whip up an off-menu, custom cocktail for you. In the summer, I enjoyed a gin and cucumber drink, garnished with sea salt and black pepper.
They also have one of the coolest bathrooms in New York City. You’ll know what I mean when you see it.
Wednesday is my weekend.
"I had no idea that it was a light-sensitive, fragile thing. It just didn’t occur to me. And that was it – that there was this two part process: this act of looking and observing, and then this technical part, this magic that you couldn’t fully understand or control but you could potentially harness. And that’s what I love about it still – it’s looking and it’s harnessing technology. It’s recording sight, recording what the world looks like. "
New York beauty.
October is over, and so officially begins the holiday season.
Everything wonderful about fall - briskness of air, coziness of the indoors, tight-knit communities - is only about to intensify this coming month.
I welcome it with open, wool-clad arms.
I truly, truly adore the sheets that I am sleeping in these days.
Dappled, late summer evenings at anotheroom.
A small, narrow bar near work; you could say its my local, except I’m not rich enough to live in Tribeca. If I could, I would frequent this bar, with its purposeful and delicious selection of beers, far too often.
