MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 17 – 23, 2015! (PART 2)
The actual weekend begins here with a visit to Chelsea Market, the NEW WHITNEY (Yay!), a true New York deli, and two excellent evenings of jazz and live theater.
(HERE’S PART 1: This is part 2)
Chelsea Market which Zach described as the place that rich people would build during the Apocalypse to remind themselves of a better time.
We wandered around looking for an egg sandwich, but alas, couldn’t find anything.
Went to Amy’s Bread and ordered a “Parisian breakfast” aka baguette with butter and jam.
Sat store front and watched passersby
Hannah Wilke at the New Whitney!
Uniforms of guards at various New York museums (including the Whitney’s), critiquing the lack of PoC in non-service positions at museums.
Cory Archangel’s hacked version of Mario
Beautiful graphite work on paper (rubbed over a rocky surface)
Made it to the famous When Harry Met Sally deli, Katz’s. You definitely go there more for the experience.
You order at the counter. People are all yelling and pushing, it just feels like a space from another era.
The pastrami was SO delicious – but each sandwich was like $20, no kidding. Share, it’s enough for two.
Nearby is Russ & Daughters if you’d like a deli experience, but would rather have a more breakfasty place with bagels and locs. And you won’t have to spend $25 bucks on a sandwich and drink.
We went out to dinner with Zach’s family at a way too fancy dumpling place. But they definitely win for the cutest dumplings.
Stopped off at Van Leeuwen’s ice cream, TRY THE HONEYCOMB seriously.
This evening we’re seeing Zach’s friend perform in The Flick, it won a pulitzer prize! *Amazeballs*
It’s about 3 socially awkward and slightly damaged film geeks working at a tiny theater with one screen that still uses film projection. It’s full of awkward silences, mundane conversation, and I loved it. Seriously. A 3.5 hour performance that was totally immersive in the minds and lives of three people whose lives intersect at this theater. It’s nothing beyond that. It was lovely. (And the set was a theater with the seats looking at the audience as if we were the movie screen.) And what was really great is people walked out! People were confused, and uncomfortable when all three actors were off stage or silent. It was a test at the boundaries of audience and performance. Ate that shit up.
Here’s a NY Times review.
Bought this dress the day before at UNIQLO cuz I underestimated how hot it would be in New York and ran out of not-sweaty/stinky dresses/short sleeves.
Taking the weekend ferry from Manhattan over to the IKEA in Red Hook
It passes the Statue of Liberty
I documented this whole day so I’ll post more in depth about this day later
Here’s a pic together for once
We had a fantastic time at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, which I’ll post more about in my ADIML.
Mirror selfie after the Vangard’s super strong old fashioned
And an evening of more jazz and billiards at Fat Cat
And that’s Sunday eve!
(Sorry this post was so late – my UX Design class is really heating up and I’m swamped in Getty work and UX work)
Much love friends.
