Four months in New York are over. I have had the most incredible time and have learnt a huge amount while studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Manhattan is an amazing place to live, even for a short time and I have left with some wonderful friends. I'm excited to start back at Chelsea and will put my new skills to work. Hopefully it won't be too long 'til I'm back in the Big Apple.
On the penultimate day in New York City, Joe and I went back down to Fulton Street to a letterpress called Bowne & Co. Stationers, a part of the South Street Seaport Museum. The shop looks just like it did in the late 1870s and we had a good look around at the prints and presses. We both bought a couple of beautiful prints which will I hope to frame and hang when back in London.
After purchasing prints, we took the subway up to 14th street where we lost our Taco Bell virginity. It was quite delicious, actually.
