Great time in NYC
I spoke with Maryann Zucker this morning. She and her husband, Steve, are the show hosts for the NY pen show held each year, and this fall they will host their tenth annual event. I've been to just about every one of the shows throughout the years and have had a wonderful time at each, though the venues have been different. This year it will be held, like last year, in Manhattan at the Park Central Hotel on Seventh Avenue, just south of Central Park. I love NY in the fall and I love pens anytime of the year, and it's never too early to make travel plans. Come to the Park Central on Friday, October 15 (11 am to 7 pm), Saturday, October 16 (10 am to 5 pm) and Sunday the 17th (10 am to 4 pm). Check out the web site for more info or if you wish to be an exhibitor. Some final notes: I suggest the Carnegie Deli just down the street for sustenance (in the form of huge deli sandwiches) in between those hot pen negotiations. A walk in Central Park is just a few minutes away, and a mere 15-minute walk will take you to the theater district. All this and pens, too? Oh yeah, and Stylus magazine is the sponsor.
