Marie Claire — Sai de Silva's NY guide
My (Danica's) opinions: In LA, stay at Chateau Marmont, eat at the pink taco restaurant across the street, go to The Grove, hike Runyon, drive by and look at all the Scientology centers in town, shop at the LA Opening Ceremony (it's very good), eat at a Roy Choi restaurant, drive out to Point Dume, buy slouchy jersey clothes at the Malibu Country Mart, earmark a day for Disneyland. In NY, stay at the Gramercy Park Hotel, eat breakfast at Norma's, see everything on Broadway, go to every museum, walk the Highline, shop at Bergdorf Goodman, buy shoes at Jeffrey, go to B&H (it's amazing—and so New York), walk up and down both sides of Manhattan, go everywhere in Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island to see the real New York (it's still there, if you look).
Also, I am still sick (or sick again). Immune system, why have you betrayed me?
