Who do you think we bumped into there? None other than Paul 'Crab neck' Brabanec!
We then trundled off to visit Andy at his place of work. It's a pretty darned impressive agency type place called the News, who represent some really nice fashion labels here.
We checked over the new Common Projects shoe range. Fancy hoofs!
Next stop: the New Museum on Bowery. This was our first gallery experience here, and it was awesome! You catch a lift to the top floor, then make your way down over 5 sort of perfect sized spaces. The work was really cool and funny.
Scottie taking a moment.
For lunch, we went to Gitane, a very trendy cafe in Nolita. Lots of models getting about with little dogs. Nice food.
We then hightailed it to Sam's stomping grounds, Thompkins Park. It seems to be one of the main meeting place spots for skaters in New York, and it's literally just a basketball court. Who seemed to be Robbie Gangemi was ollieing over a rubbish bin while Chad Muska took photos. Bizarre sighting!
Nonchalant New York Max.
Lots of walking, lots to look at.
This spot is just around the corner from Scottie's place. Much harder to skate than it looks.
So is the APC surplus store, the least signed shop I've ever come across. We tried some stuff on and flashed each other a bit.
Then went and sat by the river
Scottie ate 3 icy poles
After a brief rest, we headed out again for dinner. This pet shop looked good, made me miss Tess though.
We met Miri and James, Rosie's old friends from NZ and went to a Cuban/Brazilian restaurant, a cuisine I'm not ashamed to admit I've never sampled.
It got the thumbs up!
Then we went to a bar with Jersey Shore playing really loudly, where they served really strong margharitas. I went home and left Rosie to catch up on old times. She got shitfaced.
