I started working on this post on Thursday and kept getting sidetracked. But I wanted to finally get it up today so you can know about all the exciting time sensitive things happening online and in the real world. There are some great exhibitions on view now and coming up, as well as, new books […]

Summer is not my season so I’m been working on a lot of projects (the reason for the radio silence) and biding my time until fall. I do have to say that the city is looking lush and beautiful though. I love all the green and white plantings I saw on Fifth Avenue Friday. There […]

I love to watch tennis, especially Wimbledon. I love the history and the old school elegance of the All England Club. But I’m a terrible player so my friend Eleanor Banco Lasko, who is an amazing tennis player and competitor, has graciously helped me put this post together. We’ve been working on it since the […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

Father’s Day feels more exciting this year as families can gather together again. To make sure you don’t arrive empty handed, I’ve put together over 40 presents perfect for dads of all ages including my friend Howie Guja above who was recently featured on Ralph Lauren. Does the dad in your life love films and […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

Winter chill has returned to New York but it looks like Easter will be warm at least. A lot of great things popping up this April besides tulips and daffodils and I’ve got them covered today. Since all my friends and I have been vaccinated, talk has turned to travel and where we want to […]

Spring has definitely sprung in New York but we’re still waiting for everything to bloom. (The photo above is from a few years ago.) It really feels almost back to normal though with the amount of people out and about thanks to the vaccine. But it’s going to rain all day tomorrow so if you […]

It’s freezing in New York right now but warm weather so I look forward to spending some time at home reading and watching movies. These are some things to do, watch, buy, and enjoy this weekend no matter what the weather is where you live. I had the pleasure of attending the press preview for […]

The time before Thanksgiving is usually full of meal prep and excitement but this year is obviously feeling much different. I’ve put together some new shows and openings to keep your mind off the news. I couldn’t finish season three of The Crown because I thought Olivia Coleman was overdoing it as the Queen but […]

This second holiday gift guide was supposed to be posted last Friday but I just didn’t have time to work on it before my weekend trip to the Mayflower Inn and Spa. I’m happy that so many of you enjoyed the first one and I hope your gift recipients will be happy too. The embroidered […]

I know some of you will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited so you can start shopping now. I’m posting a week earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays as more people than ever will be shopping online for gifts this year. Many friends and […]

Have you been reading all the features on whether New York is dead or not? I took a walk today and every street on the Upper East Side was bustling with outside dinners and a new bodega had opened in a location that was left empty when another bodega closed this past winter. A lot […]

I apologize for the radio silence this week. I started a few interior design posts but just couldn’t get them together. It’s still so hard to find inspiration in quarantine but I’m hoping that a change of scenery next week will help get me back on track. I was lucky enough to receive one of […]

There’s nothing more anxiety producing than wondering if you’re going to catch the Coronavirus or whether your city might be the next to be locked down. In the meantime, everyone seems to be going about their business as usual with more hand washing. I’m vacillating between calm and panic so I’m shopping to make myself […]
