New York update

Le Pain Quotidien
It´s fantastic to be back in New York, I absolutely love this city! Yesterday we had a lovely day visiting a lot of different parts of the city. We started off with breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien. An all organic coffeshop with delights to die for.
Hell´s Kitchen Fleemarket
After breakfast we headed straight to Hell´s Kitchens Fleemarket. A market filled with clothes, jewllery, art and furnitures. For anyone who have an interest in industrial design and especially chairs, this is the place to go. I found some great metal stools for only 35 dollars...the only problem is that I can´t bring them on the plane so I had to leave them for someone else to buy.
Brooklyn Fleemarket
Then we took a taxi to Brooklyn. After a lot of wandering we finally found Brooklyn Fleemarket next by Hudson river. This market was even bigger and had a lot of things to desire. I ended up buying some wooden letters, like the ones above.
It´s great to see all the trees in bloom.

High line and The Standard hotel
I have never been to the High line before so that was a real treat. It´s an old railway, above the streets, that has been transformed into a contemporary garden.
Lunch at Pastis in Meatpacking is a classic. Great for looking at people.

Window display at Stella McCartney and window shot from Magnolia Bakery
Community garden with little lots to work on for the neighboorhood.
Vintage chairs at Anthropologie
Window display with cork at Antropologie
Esperanto restaurant in East Village
And a part from the pictures I´ve been showing, we also had a twelve hour workday... But I´m loving it. Now I have to get ready for breakfast at Baltazar and then another day at work.
