I'm a bit behind on my blogs...I've been away every week for the past few weeks. Hotels are beginning to feel like home.
1.5 weeks ago I was in NYC for the annual meeting of Art Historians at CAA. I was mostly busy with Art History stuff, but I did manage to escape & explore the city briefly one Saturday morning.
I stayed in Midtown this time-- a few blocks from Times Square, as CAA was being held at the Hilton on the Avenue of the Americas.
Some views from my hotel on 8th & 52nd:

{just love the funky water towers in NYC}

I was also right around the corner from all the shows on Broadway.

Friday night I was able to sneak out & grab a drink with my friend Crystal & her boyfriend, and we had some yummy prosecco at a spot nearby. Saturday morning I had one lovely breakfast with my friend Joan--stylish, super smart & lovely Joan. She treated me to breakfast at the Meridien, which is seriously an amazing breakfast experience.
I spotted some lovely buildings on my walk to the Meridien:

From there I walked to Fifth Avenue & admired the shops & the window dressings:

{Breakfast at Tiffany's?}

{Valentine's display at Tiffany's}

{The Crown Building. Love this detail below of this little old lady passing Playboy Enterprises}

{love these window displays at LV}

{Bergdorf Goodman}

{can't remember what store this was, but love this display!! think pink!}
 It was extremely chilly & windy but I enjoyed my walk past Central Park and on to the Met.
