The Candy Apple, Spooky NYC

It’s Halloween this week, and wherever you are, have a spooky wonderful week!

Spooky NYC Halloween Festivities

New York City! The “City that Never Sleeps!” The Big Apple! It’s my last stop before heading back to West Palm Beach, and it’s a great place to visit if you haven’t experienced the hustle and bustle of such a Metropolitan city.

It’s hard to beat Central Park on a Sunday afternoon. Dozens of musicians, artists, and dancers, all free for the viewing, not to mention the ponds and trees in their fall-colored glory.

Of course Broadway is one of the highlights of being in the city, and I’m very fortunate to be able to see Hello Dolly this week as well as Dear Evan Hanson, which won all the top awards for Best Musical.

Two Broadway shows I highly recommend.

There are also a few small off Broadway shows that I want to let people know about. One is called I of the Storm, it’s at the Gym at the Judson. Desperate Measures at the York which is on 54th and Lexington, and Lonely Planet, which is on Theater Row. Those are just a few special off Broadway productions worth seeing.

Great selections for more enjoyable performances in NYC.

For more music in the city, we have Michael Masci who surprises us on Sunday nights at Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle Hotel! He’s up from the West Palm Beach area – what a treat!

On Mondays, we have the Cast Party at Birdland with Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch, and a lot of Broadway surprises with so many people sharing their talent. What a great way to spend a Monday evening!

This is a fabulous show that you don’t want to miss!
So whether you’re strolling in your cashmere jacket here in New York, or you’re in your cotton and linen shirts in West Palm Beach, Florida, remember, it’s all about style.

Autumn in Asheville

Asheville, North Carolina – a city in the Blue Ridge Mountains! It’s known for its vibrant art scene and historic architecture.

The vast 19th Century Biltmore Estate, America’s largest home, has tours available for those curious to see the 8,000 acre property and it’s Chateau-style mansion.

The Basilica of St. Lawrence is also an amazing landmark, and the detail of the architecture is amazing to behold. Not to be missed!

The downtown Arts District and the River Arts District are bustling with activity. Many former factory buildings now house incredible art studios, and sophisticated restaurants. There are local breweries, and an upbeat art and music scene in the area.

If you’re looking to get out of the city for a day, there are many opportunities for hiking, river rafting and zip-lining in the local area.

This is the time of year that there is a big Apple Festival! You can try over 40 varieties of apples! It sounds delicious…

A real treat is to check out the Pinball Museum! Adults and children alike just marvel at all the different games. It just sounds like a blast!

A fun outing for all ages.

Philly, My Hometown

Philadelphia – my hometown! A city of brotherly love…If you’ve never been to this historic American city before, it’s a must! There are some great spots to check out.

The Philadelphia Art Museum and the new Barnes Foundation are the most amazing museums in the country – of course, I’m bias! Currently the Philadelphia has an exhibition titled “Inside Out,” featuring art in unexpected places.

For this exhibition, you’ll see art in unexpected places.

The Franklin Institute is a must for science buffs in the family! Enjoy the latest exhibits such as the Terracotta Warriors, interactive 3D printing, space command and more. You can even watch an IMAX movie while you’re there!

Franklin Institute – Giant Heart

Historically, there are wonderful things to see like the Liberty Bell Museum, where you can see the original Liberty Bell, and Betsy Ross’s house, where the first flag was sewn! You can even see a copy of the original Declaration of Independence at Independence Hall.

In particular this October, Chestnut Hill, a beautiful section outside the center of town is housing the Harry Potter Festival. Then, there’s the Terror Behind The Walls of the Eastern State Penitentiary…Sounds like a spooky fun way to spend an evening! And, there’s also Octoberfest, at the Midtown Village Fall Festival, where they’ll be brewing some very tasty treats.

Harry Potter Fest in Philly – a great family outing!

My cashmere sweaters are a must for that chilly East Coast air this time of year! They come in different colors, sizes, and styles. Pair one with an antique neck piece for a look that works all day and all night! It’s all about style.
