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.
Went to Amy’s Bread and ordered a “Parisian breakfast” aka baguette with butter and jam.
Made it to the famous When Harry Met Sally deli, Katz’s. You definitely go there more for the experience.
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.
Stopped off at Van Leeuwen’s ice cream, TRY THE HONEYCOMB seriously.
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.
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.
