New York City
I spent a week in New York earlier this month, and while there was all the predictable gloom and doom, it was spring, and fun and interesting things were happening all over the place, as they always do.
Le Veau D’or
This is a famously obscure (or so I’m told) Upper East Side French restaurant a friend took me to, with a barely renovated 1960s dining room and a menu to match. The bottom two photos are from a google image search and far more representative of the scene there than any of my photos… I’m sure the very friendly staff there would appreciate your patronage.
The Smile is a very cute new store / tattoo parlour and cafe off the Bowery. If it tells you anything about the shop, I bought some candles, a vintage lightbulb, a fancy new dog collar for Waffles, and a bag of yarn with knitting needles and a pattern for Brandice. If it weren’t such a beautiful spring day out, I would have stayed for an espresso.
The New Generation
I also had a chance to visit the New Museum, which I suppose is not so new anymore, but since I left New York almost five years ago, it’s new to me. There was an exhibition on of artists all under the age of 33. I’m not always a video art fan, but the installation by Ryan Trecartin certainly kept my attention. Here’s a similarly not so new article from The New York Times, and here’s his youtube page. I’m sure he would also appreciate your patronage.
