I'm writing you again from the Big, Awesome, electrifying Apple.
I love this city everyday more and more,
everyday i find something new, everyday i make a new discovery.
Every area of the City gives you something different.
From the Upper East Side with its museums (on the 5th Ave., the Museum Mile), chic restaurants, haute couture boutiques (above all on 5th Ave. and Madison Ave.), sophisticated women and the funniest dogs ever,
to Greenwich Village with its sexy shops, little cool cafés and restaurants and strange people everywhere,
from the Queens with the amazing Shea Stadium (Mets' home!) to Rockaway Beach (like Ramones' song!)
to East Village with its tattoo studios (I got tattooed there, at Village Pop Tattoo) and Rooftop clubs,
from Brooklyn to....Brooklyn!
Yes, i felt in love with Brooklyn, well, not with Brooklyn at all.
In Brooklyn there are some areas in wich i thought i was in a gangsta movie, too scaring!
Instead the artist area of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, it's awesome.
It's full of little vintage clothes shops and book shops, small cool cafés and cool people.
In that area, people sell clothes and accessories on the streets, but not like in a usual market, they sell old clothes and accessories that they don't use anymore!
Brooklyn is so alive.
Yesterday, we went there again (we went there for the first time on sunday 8, for Cut Copy free concert).
Well, this time we found a lot of pretty shops, so Brooklyner!
I bought a very nice book in a cool bookshop, that book, My wonderful world of fashion, written by Nina Chakrabarti it's so funny and it gives inspirations, tips and a lot of help to learn how to design clothes and accessories, and the book itself, is a fantastic accessory!
I'd like to talk for hours (pages) about NYC, and i'll do.
Now, there's something that i've absolutely to say.
I'm happy that i'm not acting like a tourist.
I'm happy that i'm not doing the usual NY holyday.
I'm happy that people thinks that i'm a newyorker.
I'm happy that i'm really living the City, like only newyorkers do.
