Favorite Store
381 W Broadway, NY, NY

Note I'm pretty impressed with the RRL shop on West Broadway. It's the closest thing to cinematic shopping I've experienced in a long time. I've been enjoying going in there and trying on these outfits that make me look like a WWII air force pilot.

AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

Favorite Museum/Gallery
211 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

Note I'm a big fan of the Museum of Natural history, but I'm also a fan of a number of the LES galleries like Charles Bank, The Hole, Klaus von Nichtssagend, Rental and Bureau. Good stuff, great energy.
