I am happy to report that NYC is alive and BOOMing. I wish the big apple would pass the economic gravy over to LA because we need it badly. I spent 3 days in the most liberating city ever. Sure, Culver City in nice n' all with our noteworthy Farmer's Market, decent co-ed Softball League and raw food cafes. However, it's hard to compare when you're soaking in the killer view from the High Line, shopping in Soho, doing Brunch at the Boathouse and dinner at The Breslin. I never miss a visit to ABC Carpet & Home, no matter what degree of my hangover or jet-laggedness. ABC has gorgeous gifts and furniture, but their niche of course, are the incredible carpets.
This is how I feel when in NY, "my heart beating like a hammer":
