New York in October

I am back. I have been very quiet for nearly six weeks. Not that I didn't have anything to write or bitch about New York. There is always plenty of material for such a task. But I slowed down a little bit during the end of August and September. A short trip to Europe, hot and humid days, iced coffees and a general laid back attitude did not allow me to be very productive or creative. But I won't give up my NYLON blog.

Truth is though that the more I stay in the Big Apple, the less I talk about London. I am always pro London. As a former London resident, I still believe that London is far more sophisticated and classy city than New York. There people are not so rude on the streets, are elegantly dressed, do not complain about money all the time and can buy a fifteen pound cocktail drink at a high-class hotel bar. I miss my evenings at the Savoy, Meridian Waldorf or Mandarin Oriental bars. Far from being my locales, there were secret treasures. To celebrate, laugh and be extravagant. I don't have a similar experience from the Big Apple. Maybe this is going to be my next goal: try out expensive bars in NYC!

I will keep you posted on my progress soon! In the meantime, you can read my regular postings at the "other" blog: My alter ego is Diva Renee who will share the dirt of the city and announce numerous events. Diva Renee will welcome your comments too so be active.

I like your bitchy comments about New York, much better than some people's gushing prose pretending to like everything. Honesty is much more refreshing. Keep up the bitching...
