If you are ever planning on coming to New York and you love flowers (I mean who doesn't) you must visit the flower district. It is an entire city street dedicated to beautiful, fragrant blooms and floral supplies. I recently ventured to my old stomping grounds (it is located a block away from The Fashion Institute of Technology, my alumni) of Chelsea to take in this bustling district once again. Wandering into each shop filled me with such inspiration from the vibrant color palettes of the flowers, the display pieces to the heady floral aroma of the roses.
