The City That Never Sleeps
Die Reise nach New York City zum Jahreswechsel ist mein persönliches Highlight von 2016. Ob Kulinarik, Musik, Kultur, Kunst, Architektur, Natur und vieles, vieles mehr… all die umwerfenden Eindrücke, welche ich in NYC erlebt habe, können hier gar nicht in Worte gefasst werden. Die Kulinarik verschiedenster Kulturen in NYC hat mich als Koch natürlich besonders begeistert. Daher freut es mich, Euch auszugsweise ein paar Adressen meiner Entdeckungsreise zu nennen. Ohne Reihenfolge, einfach so, wie es mir gerade durch den Kopf geht – vom Hotdog bis zum Sternerestaurant. Ich bin kein Restauranttester, der Spaß und die Neugier an verschiedenen, internationalen Gastronomie-Konzepten soll immer im Vordergrund stehen.
Stay Open Minded
Jetzt aber ein paar Adressen… Hey Ho, Let´ s Go.
Thank you Jerry!

“Keens Steakhouse owns the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world.

Pipe smoking was known since Elizabethan times to be beneficial for dissipating “evil homourse of the brain.” Keens’s pipe tradition began in the early 20th century…“

Jacky and Jeff Clyman
CPT USA LLC.
15 W.39 th St.12th Fl.
New York, N.Y. 10018
Our Story begins in the skies…
…“In the early 1970’s Cockpit USA President and founder Jeff Clyman, a seasoned Warbird pilot, was spending his free time flying vintage WWII era aircraft as a performer in air shows. Sporting his fathers Army Air Corps aviator jacket, he took notice of the crowds of people wanting to know where they could get one of their own. Jeff saw an opportunity to create a business and career out of his passion for aviation, and his unique knowledge of genuine historic military fashion.
The business started with Jeff trading and selling his personal collection of original period jackets with other collectors and enthusiasts, amassing one of the most impressive personal collections of vintage flight jackets. He quickly realized that the demand for these iconic pieces of American fashion would quickly outpace the supply.
In 1975, Jeff Clyman founded AVIREX Ltd, and officially began an adventure that has continued for the last 40 years. Working from original military designs for the A-2, and G-1, AVIREX began to establish itself as a leader in original period aviator jackets. Recreating these iconic jackets was not always easy; many records were lost, along with the methods used to produce the rugged functionality needed for combat. The art of producing the impervious finish found on the original B-3 Bomber jacket had been lost; Jeff committed himself to rediscovering the lost process. After a month in a tannery laboratory, he was able to successfully reproduce the process, a technique that we still use today…“
St. Patricks Cathedral
5th Ave, New York, NY 10022, USA
The story of New York’s great cathedral mirrors the story of the city itself. Created to affirm the ascendance of religious freedom and tolerance, St. Patrick’s Cathedral was built in the democratic spirit, paid for not only by the contributions of thousands of poor immigrants but also by the largesse of 103 prominent citizens who pledged $1,000 each. St. Patrick’s Cathedral proves the maxim that no generation builds a cathedral. It is rather, a kind of ongoing conversation linking generations past, present and future.
The cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral was laid in 1858 and her doors swept open in 1879. It was over 150 years ago when Archbishop John Hughes announced his inspired ambition to build the “new” St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
THANK YOU NEW YORK!
Happy New Year.
Best wishes always,
