This was such a gem to find.
It is is Chelsea, it is called the Highline. It used to be a railway that ran into the Meatpacking District carrying, what else, meat. Since long ago, they have transformed the old railway into this lush, beautiful pathway above all the city traffic to wander, run, sit, suntan, relax, anything you want. It is really beautiful and just another thing that makes New York so specail. They are always creating amazing outdoor spaces for it's residents. And they plan on expanding this even further. Before this we made out way into Chelsea Market, which in itself, is amazing, and full of super yummy treats!
Finding our way to Williamsburg...
On this day we were walking among hundreds of men and young men, and a few women, dressed in what i thought was the most amazing clothes. This was one of the hottest days in New York, and these men wore fur hats and suits and they weren't even breaking a sweat. I was told later these were Russian Jewish folks. We were in New York for Yam Kapur, the Jewish New Years this year, so maybe this was something special to do with that? I may be wrong, so correct me if so. It was on a Saturday, and it was so sweet seeing all the dad's with there little ones all dressed up. I had to snap a few pictures...

Far and away, the highlight for me of Fashion's Night out, wss catching site of Anna Wintour as she hurried into the Rug Company in Soho, and then well, following her in, and then to be treated my Hamish Bowles taking the stage and singing some of the sweetest tunes. I loved how much Anna looked on at him with a proud look on her face. For how great he was. It was such a treat to stubble upon this little chance siting.
There was lots of room, no guards at the door, no lines, no rudeness. I was right in front, got to watch the whole thing and felt so special to be able to watch this little show.
I have more pictures, but this is right when this memory card ran out, and I slipped in another one.
In the last one, I think Anna is looking at me? Maybe? Well we were wearing the same shirt!
