Definition of ‘camp‘ – “The American writer Susan Sontag‘s essay “Notes on ‘Camp’” (1964) emphasized its key elements as: artifice, frivolity, naïve middle-class pretentiousness, and ‘shocking’ excess. Camp as an aesthetic has been popular from the 1960s to the present.”

Oh this show was so much fun to view, and the air conditioning at The Met is pretty top notch too.  Who doesn’t love an upside down dress or one made of hello kitty plushies? Clearly Zoe loved it .. Ezra preferred the show of famous rock guitars and instruments on the other floor.

My husband and I got a chance to step out without the kids!  I haven’t seen Greenpoint in so long – I had no idea it became its own microcosm of great food and fun.  So much good food like the French Bistro Chez Ma Tante.  Yeah, the food was so good I kind of didn’t get to photograph it until it was half eaten…

I don’t really even have to say much here other than .. WOW.  Did this TWA Terminal at JFK Airport really stand still in time like this?  How much revamping do you have to do to an already gorgeous Saarinen design like this?  While dropping Ezra off for a flight (AND upon returning to get him) we had to go into this place twice and enjoy the piped in rat pack music, vintage cars, and ohhhh so much gorgeous Saarinen lines in poppy colors (that red!)  And yes, there is a bar in that plane outside..

Need I say more?  I’ll shut up now and let you enjoy the photos of this hotel that is somewhat of a museum:

How is everyone’s summer going?  Now that Ezra’s big event is over, the summer feels like one great big exhale.  The kids have camps by day but otherwise we’ve had hot and steamy (or sometimes cool and breezy) party nights in crammed urban backyards with friends.

OR lemonade stands and trips to Corona Ice King by day ..

OR more evening fun in the way of outdoor movies in a neighbor’s yard (LOVE Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!)

What have YOU been up to ?  As always – it’s all going by so quickly as summer does:

Need I say more?  Every year Ezra considers this akin to Channukah or Christmas;  a day at the Javitz Center to see new car ideas.  Now even Zoe is getting involved! And of course we had to stop and see the exterior of the new ‘Vessel’ building in Hudson Yards along the way:

I’m not gonna lie, it has taken YEARS to get Zoe ‘into’ the ballet or dance.  She’s just now mature enough to enjoy it, and she even lasted through all 2 and a half hours of Peck and Copland’s “Rodeo” – which was a lot of fun!  The Second Movement was my favorite part,  and is included as a video at the end of this post.  Enjoy!

In our old neighborhood of Long Island City there’s a new little cafe… for humans and pets alike!  We love sipping hot chocolate at Chateau Le Woof and watching Louie make new friends (below is Frankie).  The park across the street gets super muddy as the weather warms so this is a perfect spot for dry paws.
