Local Notes: SoHo NYC

When I was in NYC for The Brand Market, I got in town a little early on Friday and was able to spend the afternoon with Brynn Elliott Watkins, Sara Kerens, and my friend Marisol. I wanted to just enjoy the unusually perfect weather and pop in and out of spots that looked inviting. When else would I have the opportunity to spend an afternoon in NYC, with absolutely nothing to do but explore? So here’s where we landed…

We walked into Clic Gallery and were immediately sucked into the giant art prints and photos on the gallery wall. This place was filled with work from varying artists from across the U.S., and I even recognized the work of my friend Courtney Hamill of Honeycomb studio. Remember her? I concluded I probably couldn’t fit my Laurie Victor Kay artwork in my suitcase home so I snatched a postcard instead:)

In an attempt to find an available lunch spot we ran into La Esquina which happens to be one of the best taco spots in NYC (and after tasting, I wholeheartedly agree). It looked like an airstream with minimal space inside and a constant stream of people waiting in line to get a hold of a taco made for the mexican food lover’s dream. There is a nicer sit down portion to the restaurant right next door, and from what I hear the basement is even grander. Worth a peek if not a taste!

We did a little shopping in Topshop and ended at Little Fox Cafe coffee spot for iced mochas. What I really love about NYC is the different styles and stories from people’s lives that merge into it’s own culture. The sweetest barista let Sara take photos of her serving customers. I loved her style!

Had such a good time with these gals. You have got to check out their sites! You will be overwhelmed by their talent!

Can’t wait to get back to this city someday soon. I am taking note to visit in May when the weather is much kinder than February;)
