NYC we go hard...


I'm going to New York this Friday with the Ruby team, and, in doing so, I shall step foot upon America for the very first time. I don't know what to expect when I get out there, but I know that it is going to be one of the best experiences of my life to date.

Any advice on what to do, where to go and how to get there would be very much appreciated - let me know!

With thanks, [an exuberant] Whathehelle?

I miss NY so say hello for me:) What kind of places in the city are you looking for? I have so many suggestions, I don't know where to start...

Wanna borrow my ID?

StyleSniper said...

Yeah, you'll need a fake ID for most of the fun shit you take for granted here!
Go see the guys at Reed Space if you can. Nice bunch, met them at BnB. Oh, and if you can, walk as much as poss, you'll see things. Take a camera. Ask jenny to hook you up with Jeff Squires from PSFK! Great guy.

Stussy's store in Soho is pretty much clothes heaven on earth.
Brooklyn/Willamsburg is killer for vintage clothes shops as well. There's also alot of street art out there [check out these guys Faile] which is cool.

This Mexican restaurant, La Esquina is pretty trendy gaff to be in at the moment, it's got great atmosphere and food though. I saw Thierry Henry there as well [another of my subtle namedrops].

I can't really help you out on night life, as I'm just a tender young'un out there myself.

Jebus christ I forgot about the thing I go to NYC for:

Fresh-mutha-funkin-treds.

ARC is the holy grail. Basically only gets one off trainers.

Classic Kicks is sweet too.

Sorry once I get started on New York City...

I can't flippin' wait, it's going to be amazing!! I'm going to bed at this stupidly early time of 23:07 just so I can get going extra early tomorrow! Can't wait. Amanda I shall say hi to NY from you; Ben I would love to take your iD though, as I told you today, I don't think we look enough alike; Mr SS I'll find this Reed Space if possible and I think we might be meeting up with this Jeff Squires fella already; hotting Canal St. Mos Def; and Mr Missing you're great - thanks for all the advice!
