My New York

I am really excited to share with you a long-term project I have been working on for a while now. I have been designated to highlight (some of) my favorite places in this fair town, for a new website launching early in 2013, called REstylesource. The idea is to showcase local artisans, small producers, and fantastic neighborhood merchants, in direct counter to the big box stores and online entities that seem so dominant these days. REstylesource will feature great places nation-wide; I have been sourcing great finds in New York City. I feel quite lucky to be given the chance to scout these great places and then share them with such a meaningful and large audience. 

Kudos to each of the wonderful small businesses featured - you guys make our experience a personalized one - truly unique.

Quintessentially rustic environment and food, served with refinement - West Village, NYC


Fanciful and unusual objects and textiles for the home - Soho, NYC

Holler & Squall ~

The best in weathered and worn, gorgeous furniture and reliquary objects - Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn

Handcrafted menu, featuring Stumptown coffee - Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

American food with a southern twist... "belly filling goodness" - Chelsea, NYC

Prohibition-era style setting, top-notch cocktails - Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

Are you eager to check out these wonderful people and places *now*?? They're as good as they look! Just so you know, this is only the tip of the iceberg. I have scouted and showcased numerous more dynamic locales to share, and I cannot wait to see how you all love 'em. Thanks for checking in. :-)


  1. Wow wow wow! I would love to catch the first plane to NYC and visit all these gorgeous places!

  2. Oh my!!! I loved this post. The photographs are just mind blowing. I would really like to visit Holler and squall when ever I visit New York :)

  3. Leaving for NYC tomorrow. Have to check one of these out. Wish you had some in the heart of the city.

  4. Thanks ladies!! Let me tell you, it was so hard editing which images I was going to share. I simply have oodles from each locale, and many that have won my heart. Glad you all found yourselves compelled as you looked through them!

    Deneen, I do have more! Go to Tipsy Parson, for starters - pretty much in the heart of the city, and in a great neighborhood, at that. Also try Mas Farmhouse, part of my series but not in this posting, if you want an elegant and complete dining experience. I think it's on Bedford, in the Village. And if you can adventure out, know that the effort will produce many rewards - there are just SO many cool neighborhoods to explore!
