MY NY: Olivia Palermo's 5 Fave NYC Spots

olivia-palermo-my-ny-story-1
Oh Olivia! We've watched this NYC fashion plate go from controversial socialite to bona fide celebrity all in a New York minute. Given that Palermo is the star of The City, we thought it was only natural that she share her NYC with us. And we couldn't have caught up with the social at a better time—Palermo launches a limited-edition line of accessories for Roberta Freymann today, featuring inspiration from our very own Big Apple. Whether it's a sweet candy shop in Brooklyn or a Park Avenue ping-pong club (!), the young tastemaker shows us her five fave spots to escape from those pesky paparazzi.
