Shopping New York – New York, New York, It’s a Wonderful Town*

By Cheryl Katz

It’s piled up, jam packed, crammed full, crowded, crazy, colorful. And that’s only part of its charm. To embrace New York madly, passionately —and that’s the only way to love this city of over eight million people—you’ve got to accept the too –much- of- it-ness.

Not in a 1980’s over the top way —though there is that —the new Baccarat Residence and Hotel on 54th Street is a perfect elegant example. It’s more about the fact that if one of something is good, a whole lot of it is even better.

To wit, within a one-mile radius, and in less than an hour, we feasted our eyes on things that looked greatest in groups.
