While attending Blogfest 2012 in NYC we stayed in the up and coming totally hip and youthful "Flatiron District". At the center of this district is the Flatiron Building built in 1902. This district is bordered by Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Gramercy Park and Midtown. It is full of great restaurants, upscale boutiques and scene-to-be-seen nightspots. With a packed schedule for Blogfest we were able to squeeze in a few of the attractions....
The BCBG boutique... I love the "chandelier" hanging above. It's actually plastic bubbles hanging from fishing line... how fun,creative and totally inexpensive!
Eataly was a fun place to grab a coffee, people watch and stroll on the rainy day. It is a huge market! They make great coffee, have excellent specialty markets for cheese, fish, meats, pasta... you name it. There are also several quaint little eateries inside. We ate at the pizza and pasta one - Delicious!
Marimekko was just the splash of color needed on the dreary day. While dashing down the street we noticed the splash of color begging for us to come in... How fun is this!
And finally a resting spot...
We stayed at the fun and convenient Flatiron Hotel. A new boutique hotel right in the heart of it all.. (Notice the totally cool fish tank? How about the onyx molding?) It's a great place to kick up your feet and rest for the night!
I hope you enjoyed the post!
As always remember to come back next Tuesday for more "Living In Design".
