Philip Johnson estate!

Stay tuned, I just got back from the 'long tour' at the Philip Johnson estate in New Canaan just now and I took a whole slew of photos. I hope to post them within a week. Regardless of what you think of the man (and believe me, I'm no fan) it's still fully worthwhile to check out the place.

Roxy Paine at the Met

We were checking out the last day of the (really excellent) Francis Bacon retrospective at the Met the other week so we went up to the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (my favorite spot) to see the Roxy Paine installation "Maelstrom". If you go to the Met, make sure to check it out! (warning bad iphone photos follow)

Street Art???

Uh, this is sort of the old-school Carroll Gardens aesthetic. What do you think- a sort of suburban street art? ;-)

July '09 Street Art

Trying to catch up on some stuff I wanted to share from this summer...
Make sure to check out the new(ish) mural by Brazilian brothers Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, known as Os Gemeos, that went up mid-July on the North West corner of Houston and Bowery. These lame iphone photos do not do it justice, since it's quite detailed and needs to be seen in it's entirety.
