As with living in NYC, I go through phases with Paris. Sometimes I think it is so overly lauded and other times I want to move there. Thanks to my quickie weekend trip last year at this time, I’m fully in the latter camp these days. Paris, even when gray, has a certain allure that February in NYC just doesn’t have. So it would seem fitting that during my daydreams and realistic quests for how-in-the-heck-are-we-going-to-live-in-Paris-when-we-haven’t-the-slightest-skillz-at-parlez le français research, I’d see this the interwebs going crazy for Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities, a new book of 100 city images by artist Vahram Muratyan.
The simplicity of the images are impactful, artful and—hey, guess what—sort of true.
Although, some super fashiony people may take umbrage with the Superheros one, as it features Karl V MJ, who actually spends most of the year living and working in Paris. JS.
Of course, the travel writer in me adores the CDG V JFK print. I’d love to frame it over that bar cart I’m going to get, someday.

At my day job, the former executive editor wrote a Devil Wears Prada take on life working at a bridal magazine. I don’t make an appearance as a character (thank God in bold), but it is a realistic look at what goes on behind the curtain of my day-to-day. Even though it comes out in a few weeks, you can preorder on amazon.
