(How did I make those awesome ransom-style letters? Find out here.)I'm working on a magazine that had a big photo shoot this week. It was downtown near Wall Street, next to all these towering skyscrapers. It made me remember a part of NYC that I overlook -- the vertical part! I can't show a lot from the shoot, but here are some peeks. We shot on an amazing balcony, and this was the Northern view: In the lobby, there was a giant chandelier designed by Phillipe Starck. It was impressive. Also in the lobby: giant mirror, cases full of luxury merchandise, and me, taking a photo and looking like a ghost. (BTW, I use the hipstomatic app to make my iphone photos vintagey -- it's fun.) Happy Friday!
