I was invited to the atelier of B Michael on Seventh Avenue to see his new ready to wear collection, B Michael America Red. I was very interested for two reasons:  his couture collection, started in 1999, is very beautiful and well made and wonder of wonders, his clothes are actually made in America, right here on Seventh Avenue.

East End Avenue: Manhattan’s Best-Kept Secret

To some, East End Avenue in Yorkville seems as far away as Montauk, but to its residents it’s a haven for serene city living away from the pulsating heart of Manhattan.  This short avenue is perfectly squeezed between York and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive and between East 79th and East 92nd streets.  East End Avenue is fully developed with attractive residential buildings of various architectural styles and its lush Carl Schurz Park draws buyers looking to own a home with impressive river and/or park views.
