First day in NY and I have accomplished nothing, really. View from our windows of the East River and towards Downtown and the new WTC bldg. under construction. Lunch at 2nd Ave Deli, drinks at The James Hotel.... Walk walk walk through SoHo and dinner at DBGB. And beer....... Thank God for beer..... And for my lovely travel buddies Miss Laurie and Miss Cindy. Tomorrow, it is time for some serious shopping...... That is, after the Prada and Schiaperelli exhibit at The Met AND Mood Fabrics. YIPPEE!!!!
