I'm just back from a holiday in New York (birthday treat for myself). I did a great deal of walking from my hotel on East 50th, went uptown and downtown several times. A great deal of browsing the shoppings whilst en route to 'tourist' destinations and saw many items that I'd only encountered via the internet eg Lattanzi, Berluti etc on Madison, Quinn in NoLita etc. Even ventured to Century 21. Amazingly I didn't buy anything - I guess there being no sales on was one reason, but I was also quite disciplined knowing that I didn't actually 'need' anything and also I was just enjoying the company of my lady friend Nice city, I'd go back though not the same hotel but that's another story.
