Nothing really beats getting to take on Manhattan on foot. We walked all around town this past weekend.. from Central Park to the High Line to Madison Square Park to see strange orbs filled with art. I am so happy the weather is improving – I can’t wait for more treks around the city.

What are you up to this weekend?

Ezra and Zoe have a very talented ‘zia Maria’. Not only is she a great photographer (who incidentally photographed our wedding), but has now started a line of products with her whimsically painted women on them! She shows her “SERIES OF PASTEL DRAWINGS BASED ON THE INSPIRATION OF THE FEMALE IMAGE” at Cafe Nadery in the West Village – and the opening is this coming Thursday, October 10th 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Please stop by, or check out her website at by-mg.com!

We saw a fun show this past weekend at an abandoned Bank of Manhattan building in LIC Queens. It happened to be a very kid friendly show about money – which Ezra is newly interested in. He is learning to count money in school and just opened his own bank account so he was excited to see the vault at this new gallery show, and Zoe loved drawing dollar bills for funhundred.org! Materials for the Arts provided lots of things to craft with…

We spent the day in Soho checking out Opera Gallery on Spring Street. It was really David Mach’s gorilla made of metal coat hangers that lured us in… we could see him from the front window. Once inside we not only got a taste of some newer art (loved Dustin Yellin’s collage-like works glued to multiple pieces of glass), but we also met a French and English bulldog and got our dog fix.

This is really why I love New York City. In all the years that I’ve lived here I’ve always loved when I stumble across something that is random and magical. Like seeing enormous flowing drapes billowing within a huge room of the armory on the Upper East Side. This was the scene – our first day back to the city, we head uptown to see The Met and on the way I peer into the Park Avenue Armory where inside – for lack of better description – it looks like a music video or TV commercial might be being filmed. It turned out it was Ann Hamilton’s ‘The Event Of a Thread’ show – which asked viewers to power the billowing fabric by jumping on a swing and powering the chains that held it all together at the ceiling. Needless to say – kids love swings, and adults love to try their hand at controlling the movement of the piece. Because of the size of the piece and space, it felt uncrowded (even if one had to fight for a swing) and relaxing to watch the slow ‘drifting’ movement of the swings and fabric.
