Anonymous asked: Are there any dope spots/areas you suggest going to in ny? I'm going in a week!
ahhh okay time crunches are good, they force me to respond in a semi-timely fashion:
if you like shopping:
21 mercer (all the newest nike tech stuff, just an overall nice layout)
dover street market (all around incredible shopping experience, great curation and build outs. great selfie opps too haha)
v files (more streetwear, but mixed with high end. don’t mind the cuntiness of the people who work here, they’re just hungry)
atrium/kith (great men’s selection, tons of coats on sale right now, but they have public school and great sneakers!)
opening ceremony is fun to drool over
reformation (next to OC is full of pretty girly things and another great selfie wall covered in vines haha)
message me privately for my favorite vintage shops.. i don’t want them to get too mainstream!
if you like to eat:
umami burger (only if you’re not from LA and have this around you all the time. get the truffle burger. do not be swayed even though everything else sounds amazing. get the truffle burger. thank me later)
mu ramen (this is currently just a pop up in LIC, but their ramen is better than ippudo/momofuku/totto, etc. worth a trip if they have any available reservations! give them a call first to check it out)
pio pio (amazing peruvian… but a little on the bougie side. i love their rotisserie chicken and plantains)
laduree (for world famous macarons and a billion other delectable confections)
artichokes (for their artichoke pizza! don’t order more than one slice at a time. unf)
jade asian restaurant in flushing (for the best dim sum ever)
shanghai cafe deluxe (for AMAZING xiao long bao… soup dumpling heaven)
i’m not a master at where to go out, as i pretty much enjoy hanging at any dive bar you bring me to, but:
Beauty and Essex not only has delicious food, but also plays pretty rad music (if you like hip hop)
….anywhere in the LES will be pretty fun to get drunk in/around.
the museum of natural history is amazing for all ages
MoMa is free on friday evening
central park is beautiful and worthy of a gander for sure.
for an amazing view of the city skyline come on over to LIC, the view from the boardwalk is incomparable.
hope you have a great trip!
