Mom is visiting us for a few days, and she and I ventured down to the Meatpacking District to: A. Check out the Levi’s store where they make custom jeans. But seriously custom – they are hand sewn by ONE master tailor who takes your measurements himself, draws up the pattern by hand and cuts and sews them out of the fabric of your choice. You even get to pick the color of the interior pockets, the rivets, the patch on the back – everything! Of course, they cost $750 a pair…. Slight drawback, but fun to dream about. and B. To walk the High Line.
The High Line is an elevated park along what used to be the elevated train track on the West Side of Manhattan through Chelsea and the Village. It runs from 12th St. to almost 34th St. and every time I’m there I vow to go more often. It’s great.
These are my favorite photos from the day:
