I feel like I haven’t blogged about any recent adventures in the past few months. I have no writing/life balance, so whatever I’ve posted in the past few weeks and months is what I’ve been up to. Well, my friend Jess wanted to know if I’d come with her to SoHo to the pop-up Central Perk on Lafayette Street.
Central Perk, you say? Yup. It’s a small exhibition pop-up shop celebrating the 20th anniversary of the TV show Friends.
There was a line to get in. It took a while, but Jess and I amused ourselves by taking pictures.
This building was in front of us for a good portion of our wait to get in. It has a dome, columns, moldings, carvings, a clock, and sculptures upon it. It looks very grand–and very old New York, which doesn’t really exist anymore. I Googled it. It used to be the headquarters of the New York Police. It’s now luxury apartments.
While we waited, Jess was interviewed about Friends from somebody from MySpace.
And then we finally got to the front of the store.
