I love NYC too. But just like you I do not love that neckerlace.
And in other jewellery news, I am sad to report that the fugly accessory shop off Neal Street has gone. I stood outside it (it is now a shop for fancy pants, the under garments, not men wearing spats and tilted felt trilby's) and I just sort of gazed, and felt miserable and wondered where I would buy cut price tat with which to adorn myself now? Man! Sometimes life is just so hard.
