I love walking around in Red Hook. There are still so many great little finds. Here are two pieces of street art I found next to each other last week:

Out and About this past week

Took a few lame quality phone-photos about town this past week and thought I'd share:
From Street Art
This is a piece of Shepard Fairey street art that I somehow had missed when the exhibit went up last month at the Deitch Gallery. This wall is at the corner of Grand and Wooster, by the way.

and this is our nice view from the rooftop bar at the Thompson Hotel after the owner of the ground floor restaurant Kittichai, Jean Marc, invited us up.

and finally, this is a shot of the past 10 years' winners at the 10th annual New York Public Library Young Lions Awards. Each author wrote a special dedication to Ethan Hawke, co-founder and host of the awards, and they were subsequently given to him at the end of the evening.
