DESIGNING DIGITAL COLOR at the Cooper Hewitt

The Cooper Hewitt Museum on Fifth Avenue…..part of the Smithsonian………is in the Andrew Carnegie Mansion…….

The Museum itself is as unique as the exhibitions.

Gallery Goer……..and the map of the state of Michigan………

Me…….in the wallpaper room……….in front of a wallpaper that I designed.

Art before digital………and the creation of art today created digitally.

Renate………a fashion designer………is visiting from Paris……..so we toured the exhibit together.

The museum has a garden…..perfect for a lunch break………

COCKTAILS on the Terrace • NY Athletic club

The location of the NY ATHLETIC CLUB is so convenient……just off Fifth Avenue and a block from Central Park.

The rooftop terrace is……fun….sun….and cocktails………or tea.

It’s fun to see my apartment  there in the tower in the distance……..from one terrace to another.

Tid-bits are served……….blue cheese bruschetta with mango for starters.

CAKEBREAD CELLARS………….ordered that just because the name is so amusing.

 

 

 

LUNCH at the New York Athletic Club

The TAP ROOM……less formal than the dining room……..is perfect for lunch.  You have to be with a member………as no cash is accepted…….it goes on your club charge……[and you will need your stockbroker …..to pay for it.]

CHARLES..…..bartender here for 37 years……remembers who drinks what.

I had an alcohol-free beer…….KALIBER

All of these dishes were delicious …..but the NY STRIP……..over the top.

Desserts are a rather simple affair……..as was the coffee.

 

Bistro Chat Noir……….gone forever!

My favorite FRENCH cafe on the East Side served their last meal today.  Suzanne, the proprietress, can’t make ends meet financially.  Sad.  It was such a lovely cafe.

My friend Diane introduces us to this cafe…..years ago…..simple bistro food…..but oh so delicieux.

WHITBY HOTEL • NYC

The Whitby Hotel on West 56th street……near Central Park and all the other exciting places in the city…Apple, Tiffany, Prada…..all just steps away.

The hotel is rather austere from the outside…..but once inside….you will not want to leave.

The breakfast nook is actually my favorite room……..tho the breakfast is a bit pricey………$30 for granola or french toast………but worth every tasty morsel.

CLICK ON..………. to find your favorite room.

The corner suite with the terrace is on sale right now for $900 per night.
