Did you go to J Crew's Men Shop there? Since it is your favorite store and all.
I was all over Manhattan.

And of course

Spent the most time at Bloomingdales in SoHo though, and with my friend at Warby Parker.

And define tech.
I stumbled into the Verizon store in Hickory, NC to pay my bill because I was close to that store & thought about the bill. It was huge & full of tech toys. When I paid my bill I asked about it & the guy told me that it was the only store like it in the state & he thought that it might be a prototype that they were testing. That's all I know. Never said anything about the place to anyone until now. An extra large store sounds like it will be what I saw there.

The Strand Rare Book Room is one of my favorite spots.

I love going to NYC, but it can obnoxious/overwhelming with the amount of tourists.

Thats one of the reasons why I love Philly so much, you have a big city that isn't overwhelming. We just need more stores like in SoHo.

Oh, make no mistake I love going there. I haven't been there in about 5 months which is a crazy long time to not have been there. I no longer have any friends living in NYC so my visits are not as frequent.

But, yes, the tourist situation is insane. At Christmas time trying to navigate 5th Ave is just about impossible.

Of course I love Philly for some of the same reasons. Hopefully the shopping will improve enough that we won't feel short changed. And I won't feel any need to go to KOP at all!

Same.
I hate overcrowding places.
I feel like as I get older, I like more peace and quietness.
So you will see me in Montgomery Mall after work on the way home. (Since I don't cook and Wegmann's is right there). The mall is very quiet during the week, I feel like I own it.

Yeah i can see you like Warby Parker glasses.
I bet you like Frank and Oak too?

This sounds promising.

BTW According to some people in Philadelphiaspeaks, RIKUMA is opening near Woody's in couple months.
https://www.facebook.com/rikumojapan

It is a store that sell Japanese-made goods just like MUJI.
But Rikuma is a Philadelphia-based store. (MUJI stores are famous internationally). So technically it is a local store that carries Japanese-made merchanidises from small companies in Japan.
Well I am a sucker for everything Japanese so I am excited. (My grandma will not approve).
