Retro art in Bergdorf windows

April 2, 2013


Bergdorf has some nice windows assembled which combine 60’s and 70’s art with thriftstore purchases. The background is wall-to-wall, but the mannequins manage to stand out from the visual busy-ness. Still, I was the only person on the sidewalk who had stopped to admire the artistry.

look ahead

That man just had to put his big arm in the photo. The woman’s thinking of other things, of course. Touching her neck might indicate vulnerability, or a chill. She is covering the purse, too.

smells nice

The mysteries of the ancient cookie-sculpture… how did those gingerbread men of yore construct this engineering marvel? And the hat? What the… ? Go see this and other creations at the Parker Meridien. They were made for a good cause; cast your vote!

That Yayoi (woman in a window)

July 12, 2012

Renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is in Louis Vuitton’s window at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. She looks real, though her hair purposely doesn’t. (Madame Tussaud’s could learn a few things from this tableau.) Kusama’s currently having a retrospective at the Whitney, and it’s sponsored by a luggage maker with theĀ initials “LV.”

Crosswalk, 57th Street

Sorry, I’m burned out on St. Patrick’s Day and not in the mood for the usual pictures. The best I can offer today is a partly green dump truck.

That’s a face

An unusually warm day – a fine occasion to get out and enjoy the city.

Scaffolding is coming down

January 25, 2012

The scaffolding by the buildings at the corner of 57th Street and 6th Avenue is coming down. It’s a clanging, busy scene that you’ll definitely want to rush through.

Rounding the corner

People rush around maybe a little bit more in NYC, but I think the NY minute is a myth. Everyone, everywhere, runs a few minutes late, lately.

Many hands & feet coming from the stroller

Extra hands and feet on the baby… I enjoy the surprises that sometimes appear when the film comes back from the drugstore pictures are uploaded to the computer. I didn’t notice the baby stacking when I took the picture.

Lunch on view & a fresh red coat

May 12, 2011

The Fresh & Co. exhibit window delicately hides the diners’ feet, as though this might aesthetically clash with eating. Today, visitors are distracted by woman in a red coat and white stockings… is this spring? In the year 2011?
