Kim Kardashian -- who just started shooting her new E! series, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, debuting next year -- is beaming about living in the Big Apple.

On Wednesday, she joined her publicist pals Simon Huck and Jonathan Cheban at the wrap party for their E! show, The Spin Crowd, at NYC's Provacateur.

"I love it!" she tells "I'm so excited to be in New York!"

The new Us Weekly (now on newsstands) reports that for the next seven weeks, the sibs will be sharing a $5,000-a-night, two-bedroom penthouse at the Thompson Hotel's Smyth Tribeca. On Monday, Kim, 29, shot some scenes with rapper Kanye West.

The reality star and sister Kourtney, 31, are about to open a branch of their LA store, Dash, in NYC's hip SoHo neighborhood.

"I'm excited to open up our new store Dash!" she tells Us.
