christabeiia Can't let a little NYC rain stop an artsy daytime dance party, now can we? Had so much fun at the MOMA's PS1 warmup on Saturday with @marcelabritto! Especially because it brought me straight back to Bangkok-life and the good old days of regular rooftop parties... Good times. #MOMA #museumofmodernart #PS1 #darty #nyc #newyorkcitylife #momaps1 #momawarmup
