Saturday in NYC
The way we spent our Saturday is what I just love about NYC. Walking, talking, exploring and bumping into people along the way. We started out at the new Gansevoort Street Market. We had checked it out on Friday night seeing vendors trying to get it together for the next day. Located half a block from the first staircase that gets you on the High Line. A really great addition to the neighborhood. Fresh greens, Sushi Dojo, Champion Coffee and others. 20 vendors. I had some sushi.
After lunch we took a walk on the High Line. I totally forgot that they were having their annual soup event.
We popped our head in to say hello and tasted the soup and said hi to the chef this year, Marco Canora of Hearth.
We got off at 23rd street to hit up some galleries. Our first stop was at James Danziger Gallery to see the David Benjamin Sherry exhibit. We own two pieces of Sherry’s work and wanted to see his latest show. He takes photos of nature and shoots beautiful colors through the landscape.
Next stop was Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. Jose Parla is the work that is up now. The pieces are amazing. I loved this one piece.
A few years ago I was in the Wolkowitz gallery to see the Paula Scher show. We were talking to Bryce about that show and I told him I was still pining for that Paris map piece. He happened to have it in a limited print vs the huge painting. It took me less than 5 seconds to buy it.
We walked next door to 303 Gallery to see the Stephen Shore exhibit. The work is photos of the Ukraine and Israel conflict zones.
Our next stop was Pace to see the last day of the Fred Wilson exhibit. Big fan of him ( the artist ) and his work. This mirror is jaw dropping.
It was time for a pick me up. We strolled down to the High Line hotel to get a shot of coffee and a sweet. The backyard is a small oasis departure from the beat of the street.
One more stop was to check out the Vintage Poster fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion. I look for posters online sometimes but have a hard time pulling the trigger. This Campari poster grabbed us both. Made in 1926 and printed on linen. Not sure how many are left out there but at least we have one now.
We ran a few more errands picking up a house warming gift for our friend before going to see his new apartment and then out to dinner later that night. A really great Saturday.
