World Cup as National Pastime?

World Cup as National Pastime?

America once again flirted with the notion of having two sports it can call “football,” as FIFA World Cup fans packed restaurants, bars, sidewalks, and even the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge. Seen here on June 22 at The Ainsworth (122 W. 26th St.), Sandy Huang holds an American flag and leads the crowd in […]

Simply Sudsational!

Perched atop its container, this washing machine drum is functional only in the sense that it brings some welcome visual absurdity to the High Line. On view through March 2015, Yngve Holen’s “Sensitive 4 Detergent” is part of “Archeo” — a group exhibition about technology and obsolescence fully aware that it takes place amongst a […]

Garden Series Has Rhythm, in the Key of Play

Garden Series Has Rhythm,  in the Key of Play

At Penn South, Fragile Ceramics for a Solid Cause

Face facts, lazy Santa. It’ll take most of 2014 to repair your reputation if the best gift you can come up with is some impersonal piece of functional art from Pier 1 Imports. To the rescue, in the Saint Nick of time, comes the Annual Penn South Ceramics Studio Holiday Sale. It’s a great opportunity […]

Chelsea Voters Weigh in on the Fine Print

When Chelsea Now stopped by West 18th Street’s Bayard Rustin High School on the morning of November 5, there was little tension in the air as to who our next mayor would be. As with much of the city’s electorate, not a single person in our informal poll came to the polls intent on voting […]
