My Weekends: Chelsea

Chelsea holds a dear place in my heart.  Not only is it the home of my school, FIT, it also has the most darling side streets, both my favorite French restaurant, La Grainne Cafe, and my favorite bakery, Billy’s Bakery, and of course Chelsea Market (though that may be Meatpacking technically).

i showed this same apartment building months ago. the red door draws me in. i need to live there.

how does this happen? what French maid is running around the city without their feather duster?

Book Me

Last day of school before Thanksgiving break, thought I should make it a more intellectual post.

Passed, (and later went into) this lovely book store on 10th Ave. down in Chelsea, around 21st St.

Book stores are one of my Top 3 favorite places to visit, and this one has definitely been added to the list.

Happy Reading!

Building Code

Between my internship, my job, and just my daily life I have been (literally) trekking all over Manhattan the past few months and with the help of my trusty iPhone (yes, that is a shameless Apple plug) I have been able to take some pictures of beautiful, often passed over buildings, and quickly upload them to my computer.  I have amassed a little collection of these, and there will of course be more of these pictures as the year goes on.
