Vintage NYC…

Nitty Gritty Romance

This week on Nitty Gritty Romance, I’m writing about something to love…

Vintage NYC…

I heart NY

The new series I’m writing, The New York Artists Series, makes me a bit nostalgic toward the NYC I used to know. The NYC many of us knew.

A time when NYC itself was as much of a work of art as was the work of the thousands of artists living there.




It was a time when the city was gritty, and walking down the street it felt as if every crack in a sidewalk was made by a new, creative idea bursting through…dying to be set free.

It was a place filled with unscheduled subway musicians, Shakespeare popping up in parks and parking lots, and streets that were littered with impromptu street art. A time when we shopped at Trash and Vaudeville wearing Doc Martens, or rifled through cheap vintage stores while wearing the latest Viva Glam lipstick from M.A.C. RuPaul was modeling…and we thought there was nothing better. Ever. Anywhere. And we may have been right.

Although I love NYC of modern day, and the New York Artists Series is set in present day, all my leading men are artists, and because of it, I can’t help but immerse myself in the feeling of the gritty New York that once was. And truthfully, it’s not so much the time, as it is the soul of Vintage New York.


I hope you’ll come meet mega rock star, Malcolm Angel, in the first book of
