I decided to avoid that crazy and hectic Black Friday shopping and take a walk in Chelsea, Meatpacking District and Greenwich Village. It all felt so good - sun was shining, people seemed to be happy, sitting at outdoor cafes, drinking coffee, recovering from Thanksgiving. I sat on Le Pain Quotidien's terrace and enjoyed an artichoke quiche. Hard to believe it's actually December next week! Trying to postpone the upcoming winter as long as possible!
The infamous Hotel Chelsea, where Sid Vicious's girlfriend was found stabbed, Andy Warhol's 1966 movie "Chelsea Girls", starring Factory Superstars Viva and Nico was captured and Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Edie Sedgwick among many others have stayed.
