A museum and independent research library located in the heart of New York City.
J. Pierpont Morgan's Library. The silence of a library is the best way to get away from any busy city in the world. When you can combine the beauty of it and an interesting expo then it's perfect. It will be one of my first activities on my way for lunch @MaisonPickle
Exhibition: Holbein: Capturing Character : ''His works are rare, they're fragile, they're precious, they're rarely lent and that's why this exhibition is such an opportunity."

Lunch: La maison du Pickle
Everyone that knows me well know how much I love pickles. When I found out about this place I just thought it was an incontournable for me to go and try this place. It will be my first lunch in NYC since 3 years and I can't wait to enjoy a nice meal with drinks.

High line walk, one of the most beautiful walk of the city.
Each time, I go to NYC I walk on the High line just for the fun and the beauty of it.
Each season offers a unique decor and each time I discover new things.

8pm: Dinner at my favorite restaurant in NYC, Supper.
I don't know why I like this restaurant so much. The family atmosphere, the simplicity of the place and the authentic Italian dishes are part of the pleasure I have to go back there every time I go to NYC. Tips: go with someone charming and pleasant to add even more fun! You must try the pasta al lemone.

4pm: Palm Court Afternoon Tea
What I like most about my travels is the people I meet. At the Plaza Brandi and I met Paul, a businessman who made his fortune in the restaurant business. A gentleman that we will not forget so quickly and with whom we shared some Fernet: an Italian type of amaro, a bitter, aromatic spirit. Then we then met Benjamin the doorman of the Plaza with whom we had a good laugh.
7pm : Curtis Harding - Sooooooooooooooo Excited - My first show in years ....
Memorable evening with Brandi at the Curtis Harding show and meeting with drummer Micheal Villiers.

11 am: Thomas Heatherwick NYC - More about it here
...Little Island is formed of mushroom-shaped columns made from concrete that are set at different levels to create an undulating platform.
According to Heatherwick, the idea for the design came from observing the piles of the old Pier 54 that still poke out of the water and provide a breeding ground for fish.
4pm: Going back to MTL 🥲
