Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] NYC
- And you simply MUST hit the Cloisters. It's affiliated iwth the Met, but at
a different location. I can't tell you how to get there but anyone in NYC
can. The tapestries, the architecture, the whole medieval atmosphere there
is to die for...

I have many suggestions!
First, Greenberg and Hammer, the store with the display advertised in on
57th Street between 5th and 6th Aves (not 100% sure of the closest ave.)
It's a small store on the south side of the street, so keep your eyes
Then, of course, there are the museums, they mentioned the Met and the
Cloisters. If you're into medieval garb, the cloisters is for you. You can
take the A train to 181st street, it's in a park which I forget the name of,
but you can ask for detailed driections at the Met, at 81st and 5th on the
park. Also check out the Frick, i think it's on museum mile (along the
park, 5th ave).
For shopping, don't miss the garment district. There is a fashion center
info booth at 7th ave and... 39th or 40th? Along 7th ave in the fashion
district there are fashion designer stars in the sidewalk.

- I just joined and thought I had responded to you Poppy. If not, check out my website and stop by my storefront at 44 West 24th street. I can reccommend some things to see or do - but if you want to see costumes, just stand on a street corner for a few minutes!
