After taking a week off, I feel like I'm a step behind. I also took photos in Hudson Square this weekend. The irony of building five huge glass buildings within a block of each other in the span of a year is that it suddenly looks like it's the old buildings that are not in keeping with the pre-existing architecture.
Random sighting: We ran into the interior guy from Queer Eye, Tom, right under the Pao! sign. He complimented us on the coolness of the Stokke and walked into the new glass building. No, not this new glass building, the one across the street. No, not the one across the street with the warped face, the other new glass building. We lingered to see if he'd walk directly to the elevators (signifying he lives there) but instead he went to the door man to announce himself. Just visiting.

Order here

This is the one down at West 4th and 6th. It's a little blurry because it was a walk-by snap, the closest thing to a hip shot I've been able to do with this new camera.

Spa belles

16th and 7th ave.

Sopranos shooting

19th Street between 7th and 8th. (or was it 8th and 9th?) Tomorrow evening.

P.J. Clarke's on the Hudson

We ate at the new P.J. Clark's on Saturday night. This restaurant is about 4 miles long. I ate at the place it used to be once, but outside, so I don't remember what it used to look like (I think it was called Moran's and they served a chef salad with the meat and cheese rolled up and then sliced so it was a bunch of spirals.). Anyway, the wine and food were good. The fish and chips costs more than its worth but didn't taste bad. Half and half means a plate with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Bubble and squeak is peas, cabbage and bacon in mashed potatoes. Lastly, this place is going to kill this summer when they open up and spread out to the patio.

A crooked house

The other day I was in a cab that cut across 17th Street to get to the West Side Highway. Out the window I saw the craziest looking building under construction so I made it my mission today to check it out. Maybe it'll make sense once it's wrapped in glass, but right now it looks like something out of Dr. Seuss - hardly a straight line in the place.

No, I don't have a fish-eye lens, these columns are actually crooked.

These shots are in the back from 19th Street. I tried to include a bit of this square white building to give a point of reference for something straight.

I can't wait to see this finished.


Speaking of Christo...

...this well wrapped package is the current state of DeNiro's hotel.

I also happened by there in the evening, when the whole thing turns translucent.

Return of the Gates?

More like an iron chef.

Everyone was sneaking a peek (including me). Looks like they're nearly done. There were a lot of people inside as well.

Guinea Pig Found

New York is a city of millions but it's still small enough for a hand written note at the local deli about a guinea pig found in front of Steamers Landing. (Can't imagine the Steamers Landing folks are too pleased though.)

Diner bar

Diner bars are always so elaborately presented, but no one ever sits at a diner bar to drink.

Balloon Trees in bloom

New Hummer accessory?

Either Hummer now offers pieces of shredded nature as an accessory or something tossed their old Christmas tree on top of this guy's car.

Cemetary in the snow

I had a little trouble framing this.
