We asked Meridith to tell us a bit about herself and here’s what she said: “I’m a New Yorker, a mother to my daughter Eddy Rose, a partner to my tattooer/singer husband, and an East Village vintage store owner. Hobbies during the pandemic include decorating my houses and then redecorating them. Perfecting Angelicas Kitchen Soba Sensation (if you know you know), and being the best boat captain on our upstate lake. I’ll get you up on water skis. Pre-pandemic: flea marketing, antiquing, and buying for my shop!”

WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE?
I don’t know if that does it for me.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR UNDER-THE-RADAR MUST-DO RECOMMENDATIONS FOR NYC VISITORS?
Walk around my neighborhood in West Harlem and go to Riverbank Park. It’s beautiful.

WHEN YOU THINK OF NYC, ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR EMOTIONS OR MEMORIES THAT IMMEDIATELY COME TO MIND?
