When coming to New York for the first time, most of the people, including myself, say that the city looks exactly like in the movies. Well, what can I tell, if this place is probably one of the most appeared on the screen. You can’t even imagine how many times I’ve heard the phrase “oh, is it the same bridge from home alone.”? And that’s OK, because it’s a one thing to see it on a screen and quite another when you see the places where these stories have actually “happened.” All at once comes to life and becomes more tangible and a little magical. Before I came to New York, this will sound oddly enough, but I get a similar feeling to the famous cemeteries, for example, Pere Lachaise in Paris, where rest Edith Piaf, Gertrude Stein, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and hundreds other incredible people, personifying the whole era.

Honestly, I haven’t been to all New York museums myself, though I really enjoy this kind of entertainment. Well, perhaps, it’s just impossible to see them all and still enjoy the process. I like to stretch the fun, especially since I have such an opportunity. But when you you’re here for a week or two – it’s absolutely ineffective to devote all the time you have to museums, galleries and libraries. After all, mostly you’ll prefer to have a lot of walks, local food, and tons of other little things that help to feel the atmosphere of the city.
Well, this is the first interview on Berry&Hope. Meet Jules, she is going to talk “vintage” today. You’ll find the list of her favorite shops in New York, a little about herself and her collection. Actually, I have stolen a whole day of her life capturing, questioning and writing everything down. To tell you the truth, this has been the most memorable interview I have ever worked on. Here are stories, history, pictures, addresses and even prices.

View points are some kind of souvenir that I enthusiastically collect. Actually, even in my native Kyiv I will treat you with a good coffee for the new spot. This is obvious that New York in this regard is very special thing in my imaginary collection.
Here you’ll find places where headphones are required for example, and some places where the glass of something sparkling would be handy or a couple of crazy friends. But there will be no Rockefeller Center or Empire State Building, or even a brand new One World Trade Center. And all because there are terrible queues, crowds, and you will definitely find them even without me . I share this list with a great pleasure and I hope you will appreciate.
Let’s start with Manhattan.
