My Quick Trip To NYC

Posted by Zoe Shapiro, August 02, 2012

Drake's very own Marketing Manager, Zoe S., headed down to the Big Apple for some fun, food, research + gallery hopping! Want to find out what she ate, saw + took home?

I recently returned from a trip to New York. My visit there was almost as quick as this blog post but in the time I did touch down in Soho + surrounds, I was able to see something amazing, buy something inspirational and taste something delicious.

What I saw: Richard Avedon’s Murals & Portraits at the Gagosian Gallery. The immense portraits insisted that I take pictures of pictures.

What I bought: a book by John Currin called The Dogwood Thieves illustrating the process of creating his painting of the same name over six years.

What I ate: The duck bacon at Jack’s Wife Freda.
