My New York: Part I

25th September, 2014

by Kelly Framel
I live on the West Side of Manhattan, right at the intersection of three great neighborhoods: Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, and the West Village. I don’t think there’s a better spot in town! I shop for wine and groceries in the culinary playground that is Chelsea Market, spend mornings exercising in the park along the West Side Highway, and on quiet evenings can unwind atop The High Line.MyNewYork2 I’ve got a score of subway lines and all the best the city has to offer at my fingertips ~ including endless inspiration in Chelsea’s art galleries. When shopping for unexpected accessories for shoots, I’m steps away from great vintage shops and drag queen supply stores ~ for myself I’m too close for comfort to Jeffrey and Comme des Garcons. I need those morning workouts because I’m surrounded by the world’s most delectable restaurants, and consume the majority of my calories at Buvette, Tartine, Beatrice Inn, Waverly Inn and Cookshop. I love watching the never-ending river of cabs stream up Eighth Avenue from my bedroom window, and the way every sunset turns that same view into a Will Cotton painting. I live in a 100-year-old walk-up building; I am one of a hundred thousand souls that have passed through its hallways, a reminder that this city is vast, ever-evolving, and utterly unrivaled. I love New York!MyNewYork3|KELLY WEARS| Ray-Ban sunnies, Elie Tahari x DesigNation tunic (also seen HERE!), Urban Outfitters socks, Tibi boots
