Her one-day in New York
“Taking out from Tribeca, I would have my breakfast at Café Gitan on Mott Street. After that, since I am already in the area of Nolita, I’d check out the vintage shops and go around Soho. I would stay away from Broadway. Main roads are very crowded. I love to explore and even get lost in the side streets. I would walk to Bar Pitti in West Broadway to have lunch with my friends. Food is delicious and the ambiance is nice there. Then, I would go to Central Park by subway, walking through the park heading Guggenheim Museum. After visiting the museum, I would go back to Downtown by subway again and get ready for having dinner with my friends at Mr. Chow; one of New York’s classics. I would finally end the night having a drink at Blond.”
Her favorite spots…
“My favorite restaurant is Bar Pitti. For lunches, especially when the weather is good, this place is ideal.
I always like to have something to eat or drink at Mercer Kitchen while going around Soho.
The interior of Guggenheim Museum has always impressed me.
I like to take a tour around Moma Museum, as well as the Museum’s shop.
Kirna Zebate and Bergdorf Goodman are my favorite shops in New York.
I like to go around Nolita and East Village for vintage shops. Metropolis Vintage and Amarcord Vintage Fashion are my favorite vintage spots.
I enjoy the little exhibitions in Chelsea and discovering different artists.
For me, Tomeo Sushi is the best sushi restaurant in town but one should not have any expectation of the atmosphere. It’s a simple and comfortable place, ideal for a Sunday night.
Angelika Film Center is a place where I always enjoy going and watching independent movies.
New York Library has a magnificent architecture. I can make research and daydream inside the books all day long.
Unique Square Market is ideal for local goods and fresh flowers. When I was studying at Parson’s, I used to buy flowers from here and then by subway, head to my house in Soho.
Whitney Museum Meatpacking is a must-see.”
