This is where all the beautiful people live...

Uncategorized Jul 03, 2019

Moving to Tribeca has me saying all the time “This is where all the beautiful people live” LOL.

I walked into the gym for the first time down here and everyone was working out hard, with great bodies and were gorgeous. It definitely is motivating and has me getting more and more comfortable with my own body. I know we all struggle with this. Usually when I go to the gym I have a shirt over my sports bra but not today! Felt so comfortable in my new outfit that I didn’t try to...

Green Gallow/ McKittrick Hotel

Uncategorized Jun 06, 2019

When you walk into the McKittrick Hotel you definitely feel like you’ve walked back in time.

The McKittrick Hotel was built in 1939 and was to be one of the most luxurious hotels of its time. After World War II broke out it remained locked and sealed for 72 years and reopened in 2011 not as a hotel per se but as a great event/ theatre venue.

Everything is still original from the elevator that takes its sweet time, to the phone booths, chandeliers, furniture and the rest of the decor....

Something smells a little fishy

Uncategorized May 24, 2019

It may just be the FISH! There is nothing like fresh off the boat fish!! Right here in Hell’s Kitchen on the corner of 9th Ave and 40th Street is where its at.

Pizza Pizza

Uncategorized May 21, 2019

Pizza, pizza everywhere!

One of the BEST things about New York City is the pizza! You cannot walk a block without seeing the signs for it!

One of my all time favorite places is Don Giavannis with locations in Hell’s Kitchen /Theatre District on 44th street and also on 10th Ave at the end of the Highline in Chelsea.

Both locations are small with outdoor seating (great for people watching). Also there is a plaque in the theatre district location that shows you all of the famous comedians...
