CC Loves... NYC!

Darlings, as you may already know, CC lived on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for six years.  Having moved back to the 'burbs of Connecticut a few years ago, there are a number of things that CC truly misses about NYC.  Here are a few of CC's favorite New York City attractions, etc.  Enjoy!
Black and white cookies.

Dollar stores where things actually cost just a dollar.

Fabulous affordable fresh cut flowers at every bodega in town... CC misses her weekly tulip bouquet!

Henri Bendel and Bergdorf Goodman ~ one of a kind stores on Fifth Avenue.
CC actually worked at Bergdorf's for a short time about ten years ago!

CC's tailor, located in a tiny fluff and fold on 96th and Broadway... 
There's nothing like having affordable, custom clothes at your fingertips, darlings!

Phenomenal bars and restaurants on every corner. 
Pastis in the meatpacking district is a CC fave for steak frites and dirty martinis.

Reebok Sports Club, where there is a rooftop terrace and an outdoor track, among other luxe amenities.

Sunbathing, running, free concerts and picnicking in Central Park.

Tasti D Lite, the most delicious fro yo around~ CC was completely addicted to the peanut butter flavor ;)

The Barney's New York Warehouse Sale, which happens twice a year at the Barneys Co-op location on 17th Street...  CC once found a Balmain dress for 90% off!

The best take-out and delivery in the world, 24 hours a day. CC particularly misses Saigon Grill.

Zabar's - especially the olive bar, the amazing cheese shop and the home goods shop on the mezzanine.
CC hopes you have enjoyed CC's little love letter to NYC.
Where have been your favorite places to live, darlings?

Amo demasiadas cosas de NY. Tuve la suerte de cumplir ese sueño y estuve en la ciudad hace dos años, pienso en la idea de volver continuamente porque si antes me gustaba, ahora que la he visto me gusta aún más. Es la ciudad de todo el mundo.
