Besides work I came out here for another reason. The reason was to hit up this steakhouse I kept hearing about called “Peter Luger.” Some say it’s the number one steakhouse in America and even the world. I made sure that if I came out to New York I would have me some of this number one steak. I invited the guys from FLUD watches to join us for this momentous occasion.

Another spot I vowed to visit was Times Square. All those times I’d see the new year’s events with the streets being packed with lights made me intrigued on this place. I also remember seeing MTV’s “TRL” with people lining up on the side of the street going crazy. This place was something I wanted to see for myself and seeing it in person definitely was better in person. This place is insane and with the giant tv screen’s, billboard ads, and lights flashing make this a place to visit because there’s always something to do.

What are you suppose to do when you come to New York? You eat pizza of course. Like I said in yesterday’s post with the Ninja Turtles making this look like the greatest thing ever. You don’t get this kind of pizza anywhere else and all imitators fail! I stopped by Ray’s Pizza in Times Square and was impressed with how good it was. I will be trying a few other pizza spots before I have to leave this amazing city. Till then…turning on Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” on my Itunes.

I've been waiting to come to you for a long time Peter!

I’ve always dreamed about going to New York City. The memories I’d see from tv and movies had me fascinated with the Big Apple. From seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles making pizza look like the greatest thing to eat on earth to Home Alone 2 hoping I’d get to go to that toy store. I finally got my chance to take a trip out here to get some work done and check off a destination on my list.

My first day in New York was such an eye opener. I saw how people relied heavily on the taxi and subway system. A car is not needed to live in NY. The buildings are built so high and in person it looks that much bigger. The shopping experience in SOHO is an experience for every shopaholic. The way people dressed gave me a lot of inspiration on what types of pieces is needed to create for the audience living in colder weather conditions. The lifestyle is a lot more aggressive here and you can tell immediately how fast paced this place is.  They say if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.
