Just check in to “find” them – there are 275 giant eggs out there!  It’s the first year this event has been held in New York – let’s show ‘em how it’s done. The egg-stravaganza sponsored by uber egg purveyor Fabrege features eggs by the likes of Ralph Lauren, Zaha Hadid and Julian Schnabel. When it’s all said & done the eggs will be  auctioned off at Sotheby’s, with proceeds going to  Elephant Family and Studio in a School. Happy hunting!
