My Perfect Day … in NYC

Of all the placed I’ve traveled to, New York City remains a constant favorite. The place has a vibe and energy unlike any other place on earth. This is truly a city with something for everyone.

On my recent trip, I spent some time at the Brooklyn Museum to take in the David Bowie Is Exhibition. This traveling exhibit, organized by the V&A Museum in London, began in 2013 and traveled around the world to reach its last stop in Brooklyn.

David Bowie Is Exhibition

The exhibition is an immersive experience traveling through Bowie’s life and career. On view over 400 personal effects from Bowie’s archive which include personal letters, hand-written lyrics, costumes, and video. As you walk through the exhibit, the wi-fi headset queues up interviews and music to accompany the exhibition. You get a real sense of Bowie’s chameleon life as you witness the various aspects and changes in Bowie’s music and film personas.
Timed tickets are available at The Brooklyn Museum.
Allow 1.5 to 2 hours to view the exhibit.
Prices: $20 weekdays $25 weekends.
Dates: March 2 to July 15

Laudrée – Soho

For me, there is nothing like a Laudrée French macaron, so I was so excited to be able to experience this decedent delicacy without having to get on a plane. Plopped right in the middle of downtown Manhattan, Laudrée transports you to Paris with its luxurious green, white and gold interior. You can take away or eat in (reservations recommended). Today I opted to take away 6 macarons, a Chou Nougatine and Tatin Tart. My bill was $30 and it was worth every delicious bite!

The Play That Goes Wrong

The Play That Goes Wrong

Fresh off it’s Olivier Award Winning run on London’s West End, The Play That Goes Wrong can now be seen stateside. This hilarious comedy, a mash-up of slapstick comedy and murder mystery will leave you in tears from laughing so hard. The setting is the first night of a local theatre troupe’s play, The Murder at Haversham Manor. Everything goes wrong whether it’s set snafus, actors forgetting their lines, or an impassioned first-time director pushing the show forward despite the utter disaster. Major props to the actors for taking on such physically demanding roles and doing it eight times a week!
