NYC Presence

Shimmie Horn

Checking out Shimmie Horn hotel and NYC fashion stores

The Paul Frank Store located at the corner of Kenmare at 195 Mulberry Street has closed down.  Brown paper covers the windows along with the announcement: “Closed Forever.”  For those staying at Shimmie Horn’s Cosmopolitan Hotel – Tribeca who are disappointed at this closure, there are a whole slew of other impressive fashion stores in the area.  These include: Duncan Quinn, Ports 1961 and Christos Dovas New York Co. to name but a few.

Unfortunately, the Paul Frank Store just didn’t make it and, following around 8 years in business in NYC, had to close its doors in the area.  Still, for those who only want Paul Frank fashion, there are around 20 others that remain throughout the world spanning: Southern California, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago and New York City, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Dubai, Qatar, Bangkok, Athens, and Taipei.  Paul Frank Stores was established back in 1995 as a venture between Paul Frank Sunich, Ryan Heuser and John Oswald.  The three businessmen started off by producing vinyl accessories as gifts for their friends in a garage.  It expanded to wallets and handbags and ultimately a global grand, boasting its own stores.  In 2010 Saban Brands purchased Paul Frank Industries.

Enjoy Thanksgiving and Beyond in New York During Recovery from the Wrath of Sandy

Tribeca’s Cosmopolitan Hotel

As New Yorkers continue the work needed to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, businesses are pushing forward fast and furious to get life back to normal as quickly as possible. Sandy’s wrath disappointed thousands by forcing the cancellation of one of New York’s crowning jewels for tourism, the NYC Marathon. Thousands of out-of-towners were turned away, and millions in revenue were lost when Mayor Bloomberg made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the highly popular race.

Now that the storm is long gone and recovery is in full speed ahead mode, it is time to once again welcome visitors from all over the country, and the world, as the holiday season approaches.  One of New York’s pre-eminent pillars in the tourist trade is the fine collection of Shimmie Horn’s Triumph Hotels. Located in some of New York’s most popular neighborhoods, these hotels offer guests luxury, convenience and style.

One such hotel, located in the Tribeca section of Lower Manhattan, is the Cosmopolitan. Only minutes away from the Bowery, one of Manhattan’s most talked-about places; and smack in between avant-garde SoHo and posh Tribeca, Shimmie Horn’s Cosmopolitan Hotel is the perfect combination of comfort, convenience and calming luxury. With only 130 rooms the Cosmopolitan boasts a private, quiet atmosphere hard to match in any other well-placed hotel.

As New York’s recovery continues a-pace, there is no better time to visit New York and enjoy with the residents there the excitement of the holidays, the beauty of the season, and the joy of overcoming adversity with the spirit of thanksgiving.
