Current Finds No. 12, 01.23
Bakeries: A very old bakery and a very new one just a little over a block away from each other in the East Village. Maybe a little glutenous to visit both in one day but they look delicious, perhaps a good option for Valentine’s Day treats.
Design Object: I love the patterns, textures, and combination of colors and tones in these quilts by Justin Ming Young.
Theater: A revival of a play by Lorraine Hansberry, the first African-American female author to have a play performed on Broadway is being performed at Bam with Oscar Issac and Rachel Brosnahan next month. It looks really good.
Interior: How lucky for the inhabitant to have found an apartment unknowingly with a renovation by Andree Putnam in the years past, I loved this interior.
Exhibition: I have been wanting to make a trip uptown to Emma Scully Gallery as I have yet to visit since its opening, and am planning on doing so for their newest exhibition Green World.
Literature: For the many fans of Joan Didion her archive was just acquired by the New York Public Library and the collection will be available to view come 2025.
Movie Trailer: I cannot wait to see this movie this summer, and my curiosity is abounding since seeing the trailer.
Newsletter: I just signed up for this newsletter under new direction from NY Magazine titled “The Year I Ate New York”. There is not much more I enjoy than a new place to eat in the city, so I hope it has some good finds.
Life Hack: If you are like me and do not live in a NYC neighborhood with curbside composting pick up don’t fret, it will be here soon. For now though the new Smart Orange Compost Bins have been amazing, I drop off a bag of compost a few times a week on the way to dropping my daughter off at school.
Quote: From the late legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, “Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody’s buying far too many clothes.”
