Today i was feeling very lazy and decided not to do too much at all. But of course I walked a hundred miles.
Caught the subway down to the East village/Soho. Lots of great little interesting shops. I also scored my first decent meal so far. Recommended by Sandra, Alexandra & Emma. Cafe Gitane on Mott Street. A funky fabulously decorated European style cafe. I was in heaven whenI tasted the coffee, just like home. It had a real buzz and the staff were real friendly.
Then I walked all the way up 5th avenue to Central Park, a long walk but loads to look at.
Took a few snaps on the way
Fifth Avenue has all the big name shops, it is a shopaholic’s mecca. Very “Sex & The City”.
The Abercrombie & Fitch store is outrageous. You are greeted by gorgeous young shirtless boys with six packs and great pecs. The store is like a nightclub, highly decorated, light up stairs, and loud pumping dance music. All the staff look like models and are seriously hot. Well if you like that kind of look, i don’t mind it :). It is all a bit too much, but a lot of fun, the clothes aren’t that great, highly unoriginal, but the marketing is so clever.
And here is Abercrombie & Fitch
I am off to visit Brooklyn tomorrow.
