Met Breuer – 2 collections

On my way I saw this And I wondered who put that there and why. Then lunch and onto the met Breuer and I ask myself who thought this was art, and why? The first exhibit was one I was looking forward to. The write up seemed to indicate that they were pairing recent acquisitions […]

Goldman Gallery & Grolier Club

Such a lovely day and back in NYC. After a morning of errands I found myself looking up at the Hermes store. At first I didn’t know what it was, I just knew that I wished I could get to the top. So, I followed a stream of people inside and wow. Really beautiful. With […]

Cafe D’Alsace

Le Charlot

Off Madison at 69th Street under the blue canopy I spotted this place while I was out walking. I walked on then was drawn back. It was worth it. I had a lovely drink, a delicious steak and a marvelous mousse for dessert.
