Hey New World,
This weekend, I had an amazing weekend in NYC. Well, it is rare that my weekends in NYC are just plain crappy.
There is something that is so inspiring about NYC. I love the forward thinking that keeps me coming back. I highly recommend any artist to take a trip there. You won’t be disappointed. My daughter, who is an art major, absolutely loves it. She is very huge on fashion. In fact, at the current moment, she works for a local company, sewing and cutting patterns. I am so proud of her. She wanted to go to Fordham Rd., to buy some new gear. I will say that on the various times I’ve been to NYC, I have never rode transit, alone. I always had someone with me that knew the area better than I did. So, this was quite the adventure for me. We got a little “side tracked”. Thank God I had cab fare! So, we caught the cab to Fordham Rd. First spot we hit was Dr. Jay’s. For her, she didn’t get a chance to see any clothes she liked. We purchased a few things, but nothing that really stood out to her. Now, I spotted a lipstick purse, in red. That has to be the hottest item I’ve purchased, to date. But back to my daughter. I think she was more particular to Dr. Jay’s winter selection. I agree with her. Then we hit the Jimmy Jazz, on Fordham. That one was geared toward men’s gear. So, after that, we took the train back to Manhattan. We had a chance to take our night walk. On our walk, we hit Forever 21. Now, I make it an issue to hit stores that aren’t in DC. As anyone knows, there is a Forever 21 in every mall. However, this one had three floors of hot fashion. She was able to come out with the chunky heels and some really nice shirts. By the time we were finished walking around, I was super tired.
Before I go any further, I want to give a huge shout out to the staff at the Hampton Inn, on W39th (few blocks down from Port Authority). Every time I go to NYC, it feels like home and I am amongst family. Nelson, Amanda, and Chris, y’all are so awesome. I come there, and never want to leave. That is how much I love being there. So, if you go to NYC, go to the Hampton Inn, on W39th. You won’t be disappointed. It feels just like home. I got up, worked out, and I geared up to go the event.
The event was a few blocks away, at the Hotel Pennsylvania, but I opted to take a cab. The event was great. I had a chance to network with some really awesome people. Ms. Jonise Boyd, she was a correspondent for the event. Her videographer, Adam Smith, of A.B.S. Productions, was a very cool guy. Simon and Liamm, both kept me laughing, and as well as helped me out along the way. I thought the experience was very exciting and interesting.
Later on, that night, you know I had to hit up the Old Navy, at W34th. This one had three huge floors of vicious clothing. So, I burnt my pockets, in there! Hey, didn’t I tell you I’m in love with Old Navy?! We did some more late night walking. I got in a few shots with my camera, but I had to format the cards, in preparation for the event.
I posted a few of the images shot.
Enjoy and TTYL!
