After 8 months in China and 3 months in India, I'm making my triumphant return to New York--if only for a few days. I lived here for 2 years, so I know the basics, but I wanted to see if any of you know of anything I should not miss while I'm here. First, and I know this is asking a lot-- does anybody know of any sales on *women's* clothing this week? Second, what's going on in the city? What should I not miss while I'm here?

I don't know anything about art, or art collecting, but I did enjoy Umberto Eco's History of Beauty. The book talks about the changing perception of beauty (through art) over time.
