Ahh – summer in the ‘burg and the livin’ is easy. Hi – how’s it going? I don’t know about you, but sometimes in the winter my patience for cold weather comes to an end long before the cold weather itself actually comes to an end. So far this winter, the weather in New York has been pretty mild…but not mild enough for me…because I like it really mild…as in warm…in fact, forget warm – I like my weather steaming hot. This week on Mr. Newton then please join me as I flashback to summer twenty-oh-nine. Enough with coats and gloves and sweaters and scarves…let’s see some denim shorts and rompers and bikini tops! All week long this week, I’ll be posting photos from July and August, 2009. None of these photos have appeared before on this blog or anywhere else…I’ve been saving them for a rainy (cold, freezing) day. So today, here’s a bunch of my summer street fashion photos from Bands In The Burg…umm, that’s my nickname for the Jelly Pool Parties. I missed the first show of the season, but otherwise I was there every Sunday – from dancing in the rain to Girl Talk to nodding heads along with Jay-Z and Beyonce in the VIP for Grizzly Bear. I’ll be posting more photos from The Pool Parties later this week…for now you can read more about the summer “pickup scene” in East River Park here… xx Mr. Newton

How about the girl fifth row down? Great style, does she have a blog?
Mr. Newton22 Jan 2010
Hey Jenno – don’t know if she has a blog or not – don’t think she does though. I think she is one of the owners of a bar/art gallery on the LES called Home Sweet Home. I love her babydoll negligee top!
