Hi Jordan,

Thanks for the love! For show listings check out the websites brooklynvegan, ohmyrockness, toddp, or the onion's website decider. I'm going to try to see Vetiver at the Bell House in Park Slope on Thursday. Lucky Dragons, an experimental band from LA, is playing at The Stone in the city, but unfortunately I'm going to miss them because I'm working.

It looks like the previous commenters have the places to shop covered. I work at Beacon's Closet in Williamsburg and we have the most reasonable prices for vintage. Stop by on Friday or Saturday and say hi while I'm working!

If I can help with anything else email at chelsea.marks@gmail.com

Safe trip!

Hi Jordan!
we're just discovering the city too! we live in williamsburg and it has so far been very kind to us; i recommend coming over to this end and poking about. other than that i really love the met and the museum of natural history which are both admission by donation and located in central park! enjoy your time here! it's dreamy!
warmest regards,
hannah

Oh my goodness, I just came back from New York after living there for 4 months! Go to Williamsburg, so many vintage shops and coffee shops and generally just an amazing place!
Go to Beacon's closet and Buffalo exchange.

Have an amazing time. I miss it loads. Boo booo booo! love love.
