Catie's Natives is the brainchild of my 10 year old, NYC born and raised daughter, Catie. Three years ago we moved to the Times Square/Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in midtown Manhattan, just a few steps away from major tourist attractions. Tired of constantly being handed flyers or chased down by giant stuffed Elmos asking if she wanted a picture, Catie said she wished she had a shirt letting people know she LIVES here.
Catie's Natives' shirts, buttons, hats, etc. are not just for New Yorkers, but for anyone that lives in a popular tourist destination to let people know that it is someone's home too.
Oh...and keep moving on the sidewalks please. Some of us are trying to get to work and school!
