New York is apparently a fashion capital but after walking around the city for a week or so I fail to understand why. Yes it has real dope fashion stores on 5th Ave and Soho but the people there cannot dress for sh*t. No offence but 90% of people there look like they were dressed by their mamas, no sense of style what so ever. Albeit that, I did manage to find a few folks who did have a pretty cool sense of style. Hipsters pretty much dominated the scene over there though, more after the cut.
Time for a break from all those New York related posts as I think we might have been overloading your brains with all American mambo-jambo. We’ve featured cult Brooklyn-based label Mishka a few times on the site before, mainly because of their amazing photoshoots.I heart are hosting a party declaring their love Mishka this Thursday at Macbeth, Hoxton.

So the plan was not to sleep in hopes of not missing our flights. We conked! You would think we would have panicked, we just got up casually like it was a normal day in NY. Plane to catch at 8.30, massive reality check as we stood baffled checking out! We left the hotel going our separate ways, me off to LaGuardia and everyone else to JFK. emotional.
First and foremost sorry about the lack of posts in the past 2 days. I guess the whole being on holiday thing took over and as our trip is coming to end we’ve been out pretty much 24/7. Today is our last full day in NYC and I’ve been stuck in the hotel room as I’ve come down with something. Pisstake. Anyway, in the last post I mentioned that I bumped into Dee & Ricky on board a ferry from Staten Island to Manhattan. More after the cut.
After an hour or so doing the solo dolo stroll through the Finance District, I met up with my friends and we decided to hit up one of the NYC‘s most iconic landmarks; The Statue of Liberty. I’m not a big fan of all the cliché tourist spots but it had to be done. We made a mistake of getting on the wrong damn boat (just our luck!) so we ended up taking a boat to Staten Island instead of Liberty Island. The journey across took a fair bit but I managed to get a few dope shots of the historic landmark as well as the Manhattan Skyline. Beautiful if I must say so myself. More after the cut.
At only 15 Diggy seems to be taking over the hip hop scene with his awesome skills and raw talent. With the support of many artist such as Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Nas, etc. Diggy is out with a new video in which he teams up with All City Chess Club (ACCC). The group group All City Chess Club consist of Asher Roth, B.o.B., The Cool Kids, Charles Hamilton, Blu, Diggy, Wale, J.Cole and Lupe himself. Besides being the son of one the godfathers of hip hop Diggy definitely shows his total rapping skills. View video after the cut.
I know this Mofo almost stopped me from coming over here but look how beautiful she is! I was always fascinated by natural disasters when I was really young/geeky that I would read books on them etc.. My mum called me a witch, can you imagine LOL funny times. Checking twitter this happen to pop up on my feed so I thought I would share it; the video was created by Sean Stigemeier clearly very talented I’m so amazed by the quality of the video.
As you already know, last night I left state to go meet up with a friend in New Jersey and I must say it was mad dope. I don’t usually like partying in a scene full of Indians (I’m Indian too btw haha) but they’re accents made it tolerable for me. The pictures I’ve used are slightly irrelevant to the topic of this post as I don’t have any photos of my drunken escapades, like I’d take my DSLR out clubbing with me! I’ve decided to use photos from NY‘s Finance District. More after the cut.
It’s amazing what you can find on the streets of New York at night. As we were looking for somewhere other than diners and Wendy’s to dine, we spotted a crowd of people gathering around something; now when your in Times Square at 12am a man selling paintings is not what crosses your mind! We almost walked past until we saw Ayhan Colak using spray paint, card board and newspaper cuttings to create works of art within a matter of minutes. Maybe im easily pleased but I was in awe…
