The only thing asleep last Friday night at André Balazs’ Shelter Island Sunset Beach Hotel was the sun—thanks to the first-ever Coucher Du Soleil party presented by Andre Saraiva + Encore (and sponsored by Absolut). Attendees enjoyed performances by bands such as Gus + Scout and Exitmusic, as well as some mixed beats by DJ Arman Nafaeei. Be sure to watch out for several ENCORE! Sessions in the next few weeks that will take this event to the next level. (Encore!)
Forget supermodels, the next big thing coming down the catwalk is...kitty cats??? Well, the NYC Algonquin Hotel celebrated the return of its beloved feline Matilda with a purr-fect show complete with cats in costumes. Make sure to check out the seriously cute photos! (Gothamist)
Do you dream of living in outer-space? Well, until NASA figures out how to build condos on the moon, the closest you can probably get to that is by living in one of NYC's tallest skyscrapers: the Woolsworth building. The FIVE story penthouse is expected to be one high feat: 700 feet above the ground. (The New York Times)
The NYPD has officially become Big Brother, thanks to their latest technological purchase, the Domain Awareness System. It captures video of the entire city and decides instantaneously what's important/dangerous — seems like NCIS has officially become IRL. (NY Magazine)
If you thought we went a little crazy back when H&M first invaded the US in '04, then you can only imagine how excited we are now that the store's 26,500-sq-ft location at 59th Street & Lex has just reopened. With a bigger, badder, and all-over better design scheme, the new re-done store is going to be an even huger temptation to resist when we're racing to the 6 train. (H&M)
