This Week's Place To See in NYC
The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden
I was so surprised that I had never visited this hidden gem in New York City. This beautiful historic site is operated by the Colonial Dames of America. It is located at 421 East 61st Street. It is one of only eight still-standing buildings in Manhattan from this time period. It was originally built as a stable and carriage house in 1799. Later, it was transformed into a day hotel in 1826.
The hotel served as a great getaway from the busy day to day life of New York City. Visitors would stop in for refreshments, lemonade, spirits, and water. The interior of the hotel is beautiful and it feels like traveling back in time to that era upon visiting. Admission is available for $8.00 for adults and tours run from 11:00 - 4:00 on a walk in basis. It is also worth noting that the museum has many fun events that run throughout the year.
Next week I will be bringing you another fun place to visit in the tri-state area! Keep reading below for more Reno, nature, and fashion...
Reno In Pictures
This was one of my favorite shoots with Reno. Here he is my little dire wolf. This shoot we were depicting a modern Game of Thrones style. Dress by DVF.
It is almost trench coat season! I love looking for a trench coat that can last for many seasons. Trench coats are so versatile they can be worn over jeans to over a elegant cocktail dress. This one is by Karen Millen.

I love spending my time outdoors and writing about my Siberian Husky, Reno! I also write about nature, beauty, fitness, and fashion. xoxo
