last chance

I'll have just enough time for a quick trip along to the Broadway shops tomorrow before I have to leave for the airport.  Zara was a madhouse this afternoon. You could hardly move in the store and there were lines waiting for the fitting rooms and another queue at the cashier. Buying online is looking good.  Also I am thinking a NZ designers pop-up store would go well in Soho. Verge and suchlike. I think it would go really well. And a Paluma Print shop at Chelsea Markets would do really well too.

I walked myself out again today, after the High Line I wandered through Chinatown and little Italy and then east side in a totally Latino area where I dropped in at a branch library and watched the kids going crazy at storytime.

Out on the street another bunch of kids was going crazy at what turned out to be a sidewalk Sunday school van. They were hyping the kids up in full Oral Roberts style. It is Saturday by the way.  Meanwhile back on the streets of Soho in between tourists shopping up big time the locals were hanging on the sidewalks soaking up some sun and looking cool and packing out the restaurants and walking their designer dogs on designer leashes.  I visited Purl Soho where the cutest knitters hang out. And the Pearl River Mart, a Chinese emporium. And a great bookshop, and Crate and Barrel, where I mentally furnished and fitted out my new NY studio apartment. And then an organic French commune bakery. And strictly window shopped a bevvy of famous name fashion designers. Whew! Worn out.  Last orders please.

Desigual very cool clothes
