somewhere in midtown in a butterscotch and cream moire silk hotel room

well – darlings – take a look at these pictures! – taken from various vantage points of the vast suite that we found ourselves in somewhere in midtown manhattan – at two different times in the day (because we’ve been working Very Hard and not here much).


a very blue (and rather chilly for our california blood) skies today on This Coast – but gorgeously optimistic and sort of throw-your-hat-in-the-air MTM kind of a day. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


and just LOOK at this suite, darlings. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

how chic and gorgeous and grateful we feel for such a Palace.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and – yes – *sighshappily* – a chandelier.

we ADORE a chandelier

and take a look at that night-time view – it’s the sort of View that a writer has in the Movies (but only sales people on someone else’s travel schedule usually get to see in RL) – but for tonight – it’s ours.

of course we’re on West Coast time and we haven’t sleep a full night since Friday because we left on the jet plane at 11.20PM L.A time and -oh! the fire engines and sirens BLARING outside reminded us of the FrEnZY of Manhattan.

such fun.

lots to do.

what a deeply curiously interesting new chapter this is turning out to BE.

    Dearest G
    An unexpected suite is always a treat, I’ve enjoyed a few such upgrades over the years… most notably in Budapest (I don’t think they realised we were staying a week).
    But I’ve never had a chandelier that impressive!

    Whew. WYAIRL must be doing something awfully important to have been given such a suite–on the corner nonetheless. That is not one for the slackers and hackers, I can tell you! And how very, very Gloria, the lot of it! Just delightful but it did make me a tad homesick. Nothing can top NYC at this time of year, nothing!

        And it is just cold enough to break out your favorite coat for the first time but not cold enough to zip it up! *happy sigh* I would move back in a heartbeat…if I had the funds!!!

    Ah yes, the night view of Manhattan, the frenzy of Manhattan noise. Manhattan, Winter of 77/78, I awoke in my hotel room to complete silence in the small hours. I was sure the world had come to an end. Crept carefully to the window to see what might still be outside… and there was snow; masses of it; enough to silence Manhattan, to bring it to a standstill. It was awesome and weird and incredibly eerie. My hotel room did not have a chandelier :(

      manhattan in the snow is glorious.

      the first time ;-)

      after three months? not so much…

      (oooo – late 70s? how chic and daring and possibly dangerous! *thrills*)

do say something - do :-)
