NYC Apt.’s And Places I Adore…. Ahhh NYC

Good Morning All,
I am in a New York state of mind.  I really missed not going this year for the Holidays.  Mike and I had gone two years in a row and done the windows and the shopping (yippie) and the FOOD……  New York, New York. What a magical city. It’s the mecca for the entertainment and fashion elite, New York City is full of stylish celebs in all neighborhoods and boroughs. I love each and everyone of them. The chance to see how the other half live is always a love of mine, but there are a handful of celebrity apartments in NYC that have also truly inspired. 

Fashion designer Mary-Kate Olsen and fiancé Olivier Sarkozy’s historic five-bedroom townhouse in Midtown East is fit for royalty with a portico, a private garden (with a fountain after the Medici fountain in Rome), a hall of mirrors, a double-height grand ballroom, a rooftop exercise pool, a built-in garage, an artist’s studio, and an elevator.  OMG – take a look

The next favorite of mine belongs to John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s NoLIta Apartment With cozy, moody characteristics like exposed brick, dark ceilings I am in love with this kitchen!  The singer-model couple’s downtown apartment has a calming vibe. I am in love with this blue and the contrast with the cabinets its a cool & hip while still being comfortable.  Plus: check out those bar stools and pedants – One can wish can’t they?
Now as far as food – where do I begin…..  Balthazar just says quintessential NYC to me with the pate, the champagne, the steak frites…..YUM  just be warned everyone loves this place and the table are so close together you may take a bite from your neighbors plate by mistake ( wink wink )
Brooklyn calls and so does Peter Lugers Steak House.  Hands down the best steak we have ever had.  The restaurant only accepts cash unless your have their card and its very low key but soooooo worth the trek over the bridge.  Brooklyn is a spot I want to know better.
Now for Deli’s people will say Carnegie or Stage is the best but once you go to Katz’s Deli you will know what Pastrami Heaven is and nothing else will do – promise!  I have been to many Deli’s my friends – LOL
SHOPPING – the shopping is too much to even say – high end – low end – markets – Saks 5th Ave – where the hubby bought me my first and only (so far I hope) Louis Vuitton, my first Jimmy Choo’s Ahhhhh and China town is not to be missed either.  We had the best reflexology ever.  The shops are so neat – no idea what they were selling by neat just the same.  
Last but not least the theatre – enough said.  Anyway, I am dreaming of NYC these days.  A quick trip soon I hope.  With everything going on at home and with the restaurant remodel design consulting and a few makeup gigs it may have to wait til Spring.  Hey I can always do my Spring shopping there right.  These were just the tip of the iceberg naturally and if I had my wish I’d say in a loft apt. for a month and really get to know the city.  
If you have a favorite spots let me know.  Always looking for new places to see and things to do.
STAY CLASSY & THANKS FOR STOPPING BY,
XOXO LORI
