Abby Bartish is our Laner of the Week!

M / L

Abby is originally from Cincinnati, OH and earned my BFA in Musical Theatre from Indiana University. She is the youngest of four siblings and the first to move out to the East Coast. When she's not busy entertaining Gossip Girl fans around the city her other passion in life is discovering the best dessert. So far it's a tie between my Mom's chocolate chip cookies and Levain Bakery.

Abby has been on the Lane for about a year. Her favorite event was the new Macallan Whiskey tasting event. She has a blast running the photo booth for the event. Outside the Lane Abby is an actress, dancer, singer, and tour guide! Her speciality tour is a Gossip Girl tour where she's your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite. XOXO
