RHEA KULCSAR NYC JEWELS *SPRING ROOFTOP SOIREE*
Empire Hotel Rooftop
44 West 63rd Street
Friday May 1st
SPRING IS FINALLY HERE! Come out of hibernation and join us for our Spring Soiree! We will have an enclosed rooftop space with fabulous Manhattan views rising above Lincoln Center.
I will be unveiling new jewels- the largest offering to date, featuring one of a kind and exclusive items for this event. Just in time for much needed SPRING STYLING and MOTHER’S DAY! These beauties will not hit the website- so come check them out before they're gone!
I cannot think of a better way to kick off your weekend than with a fun group of people, many things sparkly and bubbly, combined with fabulous Manhattan views! This is an open invite event, so please bring friends, your significant other, and forward to anyone who may be interested. The more the merrier!

Latest NYC discovery
(and now I can’t stop dancing)
When I am feeling spontaneous, Rockwood Music Hall is the go-to place. The pop in pop out style of this joint is perfect for those non-committal types, with a different band every hour, meanwhile feeling like a private party. But I’m in it for watching quality live music to sing and dance to! Influenced by James Brown, The Gold Magnolias kept us dancing all night with their nostalgic happy lyrics, soulful beats, and incredible energy! And their story is incredible: singing for food in the “hood” has somehow influenced their music in the best possible way. Check them out on spotify, and read their story http://www.thegoldmagnolias.com/#home
What I’m missing
(as well as all NYC bloggers)
The Bowery Graffiti Wall
My first iconic memory of NYC is driving past the huge Keith Haring mural on Houston and Bowery, while inside the huge truck/trailer filled with furniture for my first downtown NYC apartment. Living downtown for years, was lucky enough to see many of these murals being painted. Because we need one more strip of land to be added to the NYC construction zone, the wall is gone! Getting nostalgic, I found that there are entire blogs about my beloved graffiti wall. Feast your eyes on some of these incredible murals over the years. http://www.goldmanproperties.com/Art-and-Culture/Houston-Street-Wall.asp
Ironically, Keith Haring first splashed this wall in 1982, and it has been a destination ever since. In 2008, it went somewhat legit, when late real-estate man Tony Goldman took over the location, and officially invited artists to paint the graffiti wall.
