Following on from our morning exploring Soho, we headed back towards East Village. Before visiting NYC, Ollie messaged Jimmy Diresta a designer, artist and master builder who makes videos on Youtube who he's followed for years. I've watched lots of his videos and have seen for myself that Diresta is quite the making marvel, from renovating antique printing presses, to making a bespoke chess set and creating signs for the likes of 'Brompton' and 'Freixenet'. He can literally make anything!
A massive thank you to Jimmy and Dave for letting us stop by that afternoon and taking time out of your day to hang out. We then headed to Black Seed Bagels for a bite to eat. Their bagels are freshly made at the store daily, I'm not sure you can beat having a warm fresh bagel smothered in cream cheese in NYC! We were both already falling head over heels for NYC, my love for the city grows each time I visit. Check back for my next post from NYC to see what we got up to that evening!
