Hello Anine,

Tell us about your new store in New York.
It’s located on 330 Bleecker Street in West Village – one of my favorite areas in New York. I’m so happy with how the store turned out. It represents the brand so well and it is the perfect place for any customer to get a feeling for what ANINE BING stands for.

Name 3 of your favourite places in New York?
Well I’m going to have to say that my number 1 favorite place right now is the ANINE BING New York store! But I also love the Meatpacking district and West Village with all the cute shops and restaurants. My favorite restaurant right now is Buvette and it’s located just around the corner from the store.

Which is the best hotel?
Soho Grand Hotel

What do you love most about New York?
The pulse and the energy. I feel alive when I get here and it brings me so much inspiration from just walking around town.

Museum in a elevator Tribeca

Located in a Tribeca/Chinatown alleyway, sits New York City’s smallest Museum in a defunct elevator shaftway

The Museum does not house artworks, fashion or fossils; instead, it showcases bits and pieces of the everyday: a pile of broken glass from New York City, a plastic glove from Paradise Valley, Montana, a hot water coil heater from Kaunus, Lithuania. There are also some more traditionally notable offerings, such as the shoe thrown at George W. Bush at the Minister’s Palace in Baghdad in 2008 or a series of objects (driver’s license, cell phone, comb) salvaged from the Pacific Ocean by deep-sea diver Mark Cunningham.

“A smart man’s garbage is a foolish man’s fortune & vice versa,” reads the Museum’s mission statement. “There is always beauty and magic in the plebeian.”
