nyc-etc: inside artists’ homes

nyc-etc: inside artists' homes

October 16th, 2015

Over the last few months I’ve had the opportunity to tour the homes of three of the most important and iconic creators of the 20th century: Philip Johnson, Russel Wright and Donald Judd. Each was a fabulous, interesting and truly memorable tour in its own right, but seeing all three in relatively close succession was […]

I typically don’t post on Mondays, but this was kind of an emergency. Simply put: get yourself to Underwest Donuts. As soon as humanly possible. I think we can all agree that I love doughnuts. And New York City. And unusual locales. Welcome to a doughnut shop. In NYC. In a car wash. Cue angels […]
