Watertower & Installation at Dia:Chelsea
 
 

Stairwell in Dia:Chelsea. The colored tiles at bottom were designed by Jorge Pardo. Dia:Chelsea is now closed for renovation, so you'll have to get your minimalist art fix by heading up to Beacon
 
 

The Starrett-Leigh Building on 11th & 26th as seen from the Robert Mann Gallery on the 10th floor of 210 11th Ave. I like the Starrett-Leigh. It's a 1931 building which, like London Terrace and the Empire State Building were funded at the peak of the boom and debuted and the bottom of the depression. All three buildings are massive and poorly located [who'd ever build a massive office tower in the middle of the garment district?]. Ironically, Starret-Leigh filled up with dot-com companies. I believe Martha Stewart still has offices there.

The current show at Robert Mann is a photographer named Joe Deal who has a series of 1970s and 1980s photographs of Southern California suburban sprawl. The black & white images of pools, shake shingle roofs and barbecue grills made me nostalgic for my California childhood.

 
 

The Caroline on 6th & 23rd. The retro-ish designs on this building are quite attractive.

does spelling it out really prevent spam?
