a weekend in new york

by jolevitan

i just had a super fun weekend in new york- wasn’t ready to leave… here’s some of my highlights.

the whitney museum just opened it’s brand new location in the meatpacking- quite an amazing building, filled with an incredible collection of american art. i loved the outdoor breaks between floors, the ease of the location, and was pretty obsessed with the raw wide plank floors throughout. below are snaps of some of my favourite pieces.

we ate at a whole bunch of delicious places but my new staple is jack’s wife freda (along with pretty much everyone else it seems.)  we went to the one on lafayette for dinner (very well known for the brunch, lineup supposedly get’s insano on the weekends.) i’d go for any meal- prices are great, food great, service great, menu pleases all, unfussy effortlessly cool crowd. i will undoubtably go back and back and back.

for the men save khaki is the shiznot. delicious cottons, simple palette, sober prices, if you’re a casual unassuming dude this is the place for you- and if you’re a patient female partner of this dude, gift yourself a french terry sweatshirt (they come in xs.)

we went to go see hedwig and the angry inch. i was sort of expecting more confetti, vintage gaga worthy costumes, and a whole lot of singing- there was some of that, also a heart wrenching story, quite heavy, bring a kleenex. but i cannot get this one song out of my head-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5V7_PSD4Schedwig
