New York Journal

Red brick, tiny green patches - 22nd street reminds me of London...

Did you know that the great illustrator Maira Kalman created a line for MAC makeup?

At the Burlesque Festival...

Opening of the Maurice Sendak show in SoHo... If Benjy were in the City, he could get blessed on Sunday with many a New York pet...

Can't wait to hear about NYC when you return!

Laura in Paris said...

You're right, some time ago, you made a shot of a London door very much like this one.

Joyful said...

Looks like you had fun. I love those old brownstones :-)

Taocito said...

Wow this looks fabulous!
I see you are having tons of fun. I believe Benjy would have tons of fun in the big apple, he could strut his stuff all over 5th ave!

J Elaine said...

Hope we will hear more about the Burlesque Festival... That photo is intriguing! Enjoy!

Debra said...

The top two also remind me of Boston. What fun-NYC, is it work or pleasure? Or both? Poor Benjy-you must bring him a surprise.

Mary-Laure said...

TAOCITO - oh Benjy would be the toast of the town and would rule over all the pooches in Central Park, I am sure.

DEBRA - I'm here to meet my friend Chloe who flew in from Paris and spend a few days with her.
As for Benjy, fret not: he is staying with a good friend in LA and is probably being spoiled as I write.

Love little Benji in his heavenly ange wings and halo! So sweet! I bet you're having a ball in New York - looking forward to seeing more photos when you get back!
