NYC according to the doors I never touched 10.

Open doors are a great way for shops to get noticed in SoHo. And earn No Touchy points from the Hygiene Hunter. Space NK carries an interesting range of skincare products including Tata Harper -- an organic line made in Vermont.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 9.

If you inadvertently touch the doors to Radiance, the restrooms are to your left. Follow with a cup of Matcha to detox your system.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 8.

The stunningly gorgeous Alexander McQueen exhibit Savage Beauty is such a draw The Met has extended the dates. Last day August 7. That means no shortage of people to do your dirty work. Or mine.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 7.

In the city that never sleeps; the restaurant that never sleeps. At most you'll have a one second wait for someone to go in or out of the door of the enduringly popular Balthazar. Year! It's like having your own doorperson! If you haven't made reservations a year in advance you will have to wait much longer for a table.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 6.

I trained my new dog to open this one at DoggyStyle. Affenpinschers are clever and have paws that comply.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 5.

This door handle is a nice nod to the Wolford brand. I wonder which part of the leg is touched the most? I opted to push my way in.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 4.

I would bust through the Crosby Street Hotel doors for their Brussel Sprouts. Luckily, they have a doorman.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 3.

I respect The Cowboy for two very good reasons. One. He is truly a craftsman and perfectionist when it comes to shoe repair. Two. On the way into his shop you are greeted by a push rather than pull door. On the way out? Use a shoe horn.

Kiki de Montparnasse enticed me with their open door policy. And, complimentary Champagne. They are, after all, in the business of seduction.

NYC according to the doors I never touched 1.

First up. The Mercer Hotel. Another reason I love this hotel is because I never have to touch the front door. The Boys are always on it and I love them for it. (Remember, don't touch your face before cleaning your hands.) They also know who is a guest and who isn't. Germ warfare and security detail.

Spooning at the Mercer.

Hahaha. I love the fact this fork is not touching the table courtesy of the spoon and that I was eating cake not soup. No, my mind never rests.

Gemma's sneeze guard.

Points for protecting the lemon and lime wedges from the sneezies. AND points for Alejandro the Bartender for being Alejandro the Bartender.

Street cleaning in NYC.

Even people with umbrellas stood still as Mother Nature worked around us.

The Mercer Hotel.

99.9% lint free. I'm not sure who spends more time cleaning? Moi or them?

Bad people?

Bad-people-trying-to-be-good-people-on-Broadway? Tip. If the trash bin is full, carry it to the next one.

When to drop your fork on the floor.

No napkin? No fresh table cloth? No immune system? Conveniently drop your fork on the floor and, "Waiter, I dropped my fork on the floor. Could you please bring me a new one?" Merci.

The Hygiene Hunter is perplexed.

Seriously. I have no idea JUST WHAT The Plaza staff were sprinkling on their steps after the witching hour. It looked like sawdust to me. Not that I am not well acquainted with sawdust. Hmmmmm ... Organic confetti? Rat poison? Lounge lizard repellent?

Happy July 4th on July 5th

This is why you should never leave home without toilet paper. As opposed to a credit card -- much colder to the touch. Although, you could buy toilet paper with a credit card. BUT, not in the moment:)

Never thought of this.

Thank you nice-lady-walking-your-dog-in-SoHo for a really, really super idea. Train your dog to poop on newspaper wherever he/she goes! Then of course pick it up. Totally, totally civilized. I feel blessed to have witness this -- in a hygienic way, not catholic.
