We'll be there checking out the Surtex licensing show, the NY Stationery Show and also having a little vacation! It's been forever since I've been to NYC, any suggestions on things we must see? We are trying to get tickets to The Daily Show or maybe Issac. I want to see Blue Man Group, but Paul's not sure about it. I think he's turned off because whenever he see's the blue men he thinks of Tobias from Arrested Development and now he can't get it out of his head. Has anyone seen it? Is it good?
Other than looking up NYC hotels and air fares, I've been working on commissions, and tackling the pile of work that built up while I was away. I'm seeing the end in sight!
Our favorite restaurant in NYC is in Chelsea and it's called Cafeteria - open 24 hours. If you google it you can get directions. Delectable food, looks fancier than it is, wonderful, friendly vibe in there and not too expensive.
For cool stores you should go to ABC Home & Carpet just to drool over the floor displays. It's off of Union Square (Cafeteria is near Union Square as well)
Have fun, I'm jealous!
Wish I still had theatre contacts in NYC...if you can get in to see SPAMALOT or WICKED, GO!!!
I'm looking at hotels. NYC is very pricey! Any suggestions on a nice place to stay that is under $300 a night?
right now I'm looking at the 4Point Sheraton in Chelsea. I guess I could do hotwire but I hate that you don't know the hotel name before you book.
Try the nyc.com website for hotel prices that a reasonable.
Is good to share spaces...i might need to share it with someone illustrator/or artist when the time come.
this year is just for scouting out possibilities, then hopefully will have a booth at Surtex in 2007. it's mega expensive, but worth it from what I can tell.
I totally want to get my Poppet(tm) art on stationery and other stuff so that's the place to do it I hear.
we'll see! this is is just to scope it all out though and see what's involved! I'm excited!
I would have to say the museum in Harlem was fantastic when we were there. Museum.
Oh, and for stores, check out my blog, right column beneath ny. new york city and ny. brooklyn. Fun stores!
Oh, and please go to the MOMA!
I visited NYC for the very first time (from CO) this fall (during the 9 days of monsoon rain) and LOVED IT....never thought I would but I did! Would die to go the the stationery show...
one of these days!!
