Are we still doing photo reports amidst the usual pish?

Post by supermo on Mon Aug 30, 2010 9:11 pm

Busy week last week, was in New York for a lot of meetings, dashing up and down Midtown and Downtown by Metro. Stayed in the bizarre, eccentric you-have-to-stay-there-once Hotel Chelsea on W 23rd St. Didn't seen Nancy Spungen's ghost, but it wouldn't have surprised me if I had.

Anyway, here's a couple of gratuitous pictures of the hotel...





Here's the Flatiron Building at dusk on an overcast day. To Crown this may look like a cock so he may get excited.



And here's Trump Tower on Fifth.



I hadn't been in NYC for a while, so some observations include:
1. Despite the "ban" everyone in New York continues to smoke
2. Food and taxis / trains are much cheaper than London
3. "Ground Zero" is chocked with sick fucks selling "memorabilia" and tourist taking pictures
4. Las Latinas are the folk with style.

Back to Scotchland at the weekend, and a trip to the Book Festival to hear ace New Yorker and all-round good guy Tony Bourdain read extracts from his new book. Afterwards he was given an audience with Supermo to go over his grammar and pick up some tips for the sequel...you can just see my right knuckle as I emphasise a point to the suitably chastened, er, best-selling author and TV personality.



This post is dedicated to the memory of the one poster who might have appreciated it, Mr I Green.

Never been to America Mo, though it forms my dream holiday. NY, San Francisco and Las Vegas bounce

Now lets have a look through your post. Hotel Chelsea?

As for Tony Bourdain he looks as excited to meet you as crown would, second thoughts scrub that. Tony doesn't look as if he's come in his cycling shorts Laughing Laughing

Overall though a most interesting report, 9/10

Did New York two years ago Mo.I recommend the Rockerfeller building for the best view of Central Park and the EPSB.Ellis Island and the Big Apple Bears Club come a close second.I could post a few pics but words could not do it justice. Very Happy

I notice Jobs announced full multitasking for the iPad yesterday, among other things. Yet you'll hang in there in the hope that a competitor produces something close to it just so you can say you won't buy one. Pathetic, really.

Here's a message for your ragin' hun mates...

Just you concentrate on improving your own composition, Jimmy. And leave us creatives to get on with our job Very Happy

You have to go to NYC Jimmy . A great city. And when you return you can lecture Bewlay on how to spell simple words like Rockefeller.

I blame the schools Mad

The untimely depth of Tony Bourdain reminded me of this thread, including a shot from a book signing with him in Edinburgh.
A great writer, broadcaster and raconteur. RIP.
