It was fantastic! Meeting up with photographer, Michael Chinnici from Red Octopus digital film and marketing company in NYC. In a nut shell, Michael is cool, calm, collect, creative, talented, and charming!
When I left 65th and 3rd and headed downtown on 5th, round about 11.00am on Wednesday 29thJune, I knew the day was going to be exciting, stimulating and visually a major buzz!
I met Michael at Pastis on 9th Avenue in the old meat market district, which over the years has had a complete and utter makeover. From once upon a time in America,(loved that movie) to this day, downtown NYC is very buzzy.
Pastis, one of Michael’s lunch time haunts, is French all the way, a top nosh laid back eat house. Great atmosphere, very good service, top quality food and packed with fun interesting people.
Then on to the Dream, the hottest and newest hotel in the city today. The Dream is just that! It is not your average romantic vibe, rather high tech super, duper, uber sexy vibe.
Then on to the Highline. For years an above ground decaying derelict subway line, has been converted into the Highline. The subway used to run downtown/uptown and now it is a garden walk way. This fantastic, bazaar, concept is a major hub in the NYC Metropolis. The rest of the day was all about the visual as you will see by our pics NYC remains to be my favourite city in the world!
