I love everything Yayoi creates and her avant-garde spirit is truly inspiring!

Starting tomorrow, July 1st, the Rockaways will be bustling this summer with people coming to visit the famous Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama’s new installation.

Narcissus Garden has 1,500 silver stainless reflective spheres installed inside a former train garage.

This is part of MoMA’s PS1 series named “Rockaways”, a yearly arts festival with the goal of recovering the area after the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, back in 2012.

The installation will be live up through September 3rd!

Location: Studio 7 Gallery, Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, Far Rockaway, NY (Map below)


More about the installation:

MoMA PS1 presents Yayoi Kusama’s (Japan, b. 1929) site-specific installation of Narcissus Garden (1966–present) as the third iteration of Rockaway!, a free public art festival presented with Rockaway Artists Alliance, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, National Park Service, and Bloomberg Philanthropies in the Gateway National Recreation Area at Fort Tilden.

Comprised of 1,500 mirrored stainless steel spheres, Narcissus Garden is on view in a former train garage that dates to the time when Fort Tilden was an active US military base.

The mirrored metal surfaces reflect the industrial surroundings of the now-abandoned building, drawing attention to Fort Tilden’s history as well as the devastating damage inflicted on many buildings in the area by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Narcissus Garden was first presented in 1966, when Kusama staged an unofficial installation and performance at the 33rd Venice Biennale.

The silver spheres, originally made from plastic, were installed on the lawn in front of the Italian Pavilion, reflecting the landscape of the exhibition grounds.

Kusama herself stood among them, barefoot and dressed in a gold kimono, alongside yard signs inscribed with the words “Narcissus Garden, Kusama” and “Your Narcissism for Sale.” Throughout the opening day of the exhibition, Kusama remained in the installation, tossing the spheres in the air and offering to sell them to visitors for 1,200 lire (approximately $2) each.

The action, which was viewed both as self-promotion and a critique on the commercialization of contemporary art, would later be seen as a pivotal moment in Kusama’s career as she transitioned from installation toward the radical, politically charged public performances that would be the focus of her work in the late 1960s in New York City.”

For more infos, see MoMA’s website!


Yayoi’s life has been quite a journey! She is know for having quick a journey with a few mental health issues. But, what keeps her alive is surely her beautiful work!

So, if you also adore everything that Yayoi Kusama creates, than this is a must-go exhibition, so don’t waste your time and plan your day trip to the Rockaways!

Here Died Warhol: A Sensational Experience by Eugenio Merino

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino Installation

Visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea! “Here Died Warhol” is a sensational experience created by the Spanish artist, Eugenio Merino. Be ready to see a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Warhol’s body in an immersive installation!

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino

Andy Warhol was one of the most well-known names when talking about pop art!

The American artist was also a renowned producer and director, and has a studio in NYC called The Factory. Want to know a cool fact? The 1st location of the studio, in Midtown Manhattan, costed him only $100 rent/year in the early 1960’s!

His works are shown worldwide and through July 9th, you’ll be able to see Here Died Warhol, at the Unix Gallery.


Most know him for his films and painting, but Warhol has another entire list of works that ranged from photography and audio, to theater, fashion and culture.

Starting April 26, it will be possible to visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea, New York. Here Died Warhol is a sensational experience that takes the visitor around New York City.

It follows Andy Warhol’s footsteps from his artistic beginnings to the glamorous and iconic places he frequented. The late artist’s body will lie in state at UNIX Gallery, through June 9th, 2018.

Here Died Warhol is an immersive installation by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino featuring a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Andy Warhol accompanied by a black granite gravestone. There is a functioning souvenir shop (including T-shirts, postcards, mugs).

And, a self-guided tour map of Warhol’s essential haunts (like his first New York residence and The Factory) complete Eugenio Merino the installation.

The intimacy of Merino’s sculpture in the gallery punctuates the cultural tourist’s experience as they contemplate the art and popularity of Warhol’s legacy.

Curated by the Málaga-based collective Los Interventores, Here Died Warhol explores the curiosity and motivation of Adjectival Tourism. In this case, it is a paired fascination with Warhol’s explosive célébrité and an innate curiosity about death close-up (like visitors to the Paris Morgue in the late 1800s).

Resonating with tourists and gallery visitors alike, the exhibition gives a full understanding of the city and artist that helped shape each other.

The installation is a sharp critique of the mass tourism and the cultural industry of the city-brand.  It examines the clash between the rise of tourist attractions and the needs of the local population; where real is replaced by a false setting targeted at the visitor.

Here Died Warhol is the definitive opportunity to take a selfie with the artist. Plus, acquire those objects created to capitalize on the essence of the most famous Pop Art visionary; the sale of the artist ́s aura.

The hyperrealism of Merino’s sculpture highlights this conflict between the genuine and the fake within the tourist experience.

Moreover, this frustration transforms the city into a commodified space intended primarily for leisure and consumerism.

Here Died Warhol follows on the success of Aquí Murió Picasso (Here Died Picasso), which in 2017 attracted more than 20,000 visitors to the Alliance Française in Málaga.

For the duration of the exhibition, it became a must-see tourist experience in the capital of La Costa del Sol.


About Eugenio Merino:

Born in 1975 in Spain, Eugenio Merino graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid. Merino had his first US museum show at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art (Houston) in October 2015.

In addition, the artist has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has participated in a variety of art fairs. These includes: Volta NY, Volta Basel, ARCO (Madrid), Art Brussels, FIAC (Paris), Armory Show, Arte Fiera (Bologna), Art BO (Bogota), MACO (Mexico), Art Wynwood (Miami) and has exhibited in the MOCA Museum of Taipei and the B.P.S.22 in Charleroi (Belgium).


Date: Through June 9th, 2018
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 6pm
Location: UNIX Gallery – 532 West 24th Street

Located in the neighborhood of Williamsburg, the House of Collection is owned by Paige Stevenson. The place is a 2,000 sqft apartment “loft” they actually live in, since 1989.

The place is also the home of a huge variety of pretty eccentric objects that Paige collected throughout her life.

As a young girl, and living a “nomadic life”, she spent every couple of years in different places. From goat farms to tepees, and collected a quite interesting collection of objects.

She chose every object carefully and picked the ones that called her attention the most, even if, for most people, it all just seamed like garbage.

The creatively built and decorated loft, gives visitors an urban vibe, with a nature twist. What do we mean? Paige has built in a beautiful garden kinda integrated to the living room, right beside the kitchen – that is also a highlight! Well, it’s hard to know what “not” to highlight there.

They host intimate gatherings, live music nights and other special, carefully curated events for a niche crowd. Definitely up our alley!

Curiosities Insider Interviews Cheryl Wat

Cheryl Wat was born and raised on Long Island, but now lives in Queens. She graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Marketing and Finance and has 10 years of marketing experience working in the Finance industry as an Analyst in Marketing Research and Product Management.

During this time, Cheryl’s boyfriend wanted to open a restaurant. She became interested in learning about influencer marketing and using social media as a means to build his restaurant’s brand awareness and anticipation of its opening. To do this, she realized that she had to open up her own Instagram food account.

In July 2016, Cheryl established Book of Eats on Instagram and as a site, with the initial focus being restaurants, food, and beverages primarily in NYC area.

As she shared her dining experiences, she realized a community of people was being built who share the same interests. Since then, Book of Eats has expanded to travel, food around the world, and interesting food/travel related news.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS RESTAURANT IS PERMANENTLY CLOSED!

“Fry Guys is a super cool retro looking French fry spot in the East Village with vinyl records all around the floors, walls, and ceiling. There’s even disco balls hanging from the ceilings. If you come here get the Drunk Guy, its fries are loaded with guacamole, bacon and cheese.”

These guys are really experts when the subject is “fries”. Their food is gluten-free fries and made from delicious Idaho Russet potatoes. How do they make it? They hand-cut everything, season it and perfectly fry it to get that crunchy texture.

The décor of the place is also fantastic and it’s vintage kinda look will take you back decades. It’s most certainly a nostalgic feeling.

This is the place to splurge and forget your diet! Forget about calories and just be happy! Ha! After all, as they say ‘Every day is FryDay!’.

“Gaijin is the only place in Astoria that I know of with a legit omakase sushi menu. I love the whole experience of sitting at the counter, interacting with the Chef, and being told the preferred way of eating the sushi is with my hands like in Japan. I can’t think of any other restaurants like this in Astoria, but in the city I definitely can.”

Chef Mark, a Chicago-native, is the artist behind it all. His outstanding culinary career gave him enough experience to open Gaijin – the result of his take on modern Japanese food.

Moreover, he blends his traditional Japanese cooking technique with a personal touch and inspiration. It’s known that his signature nigrizushi toppings are outstanding!

Nigirizushi (“hand-pressed sushi”) consists of an oblong mound of sushi rice that the chef presses between the palms of the hands to form an oval-shaped ball, and a topping (the neta) draped over the ball.” ~ Wikipedia

Gaijin has been rebranded to Koyo.

” The restaurant was originally opened as Gaijin which was a very popular local establishment that offers Omakase dining and robata grill a la carte menu fares. In the summer of August 2018, the team of Gaijin decided to refine what they do best, a modern omakase establishment and undergone a full update along with a new brand, Koyo.

Koyo means “Autumnal Foliage” which refers to the changing of Japanese maple tree leaves which signals the change of a seasonal. Koyo has a strong focus on seasonality and uses ingredients at its peak during that season to create a Kaiseki inspired multi-sensory dining experience.”

“Vaccaro’s Bakery & Café is a bakery in Astoria, Queens, that has the most delicious “donnolis”. It’s basically a cannoli wrapped in a donut. It’s the best thing ever.”

This authentic Italian bakery was founded in 1981 and has been one of Astoria’s to-go spots. Loved by locals, they sell everything from delicious cakes, desserts and pastries, to breads and breakfast specials!

It will be hard to pick only a few things to try. But, remember you call always buy more and take home!

“A speakeasy in Astoria, called The Last Word, serves really good cocktails and is hidden behind a hardware store. I know in Astoria it’s well known, but I’m not sure about the general public.”

So, if you enjoy oysters paired with a good cocktail, this is the place for you! They still have a great menu with beer, wine and a few bites to nibble on.

They explain that: “Our name comes from the gin-based prohibition-era cocktail called, The Last Word.”

And still, if you enjoy Soul, Rhythm and Blues, they have it live, every Thursday night. It’s definitely a place to got more than once! You’ll love it!

Shuraku

Curiosities Insider Interviews Cheryl Wat Shuraku NYC Fried Lotus Root

“Of course I have to mention my boyfriend’s restaurant on here. I’d be a terrible girlfriend if I didn’t, I’m also a bit biased, but read his Yelp reviews if you don’t believe me! Shuraku is a hidden Japanese Grilling restaurant without a sign on the building. You would only know it exists if you walk up close to the building and see a menu hanging from the window. This is the only place that I know of in NY that serves gyu-katsu (deep fried breaded steak).”

We love Shuraku too and we’ve recently visited and written about them.

They are certainly a new place to have in your To-Go places in New York, especially if you’re into high-end Japanese spots with unique tasting menus!

Jason Naylor’s murals

Curiosities Insider Interviews Cheryl Wat Jason Naylor Murals
Jason Naylor, in action!

“The murals all around the city by Jason Naylor. Offhand, I can only think of the one on 60th and 2nd Ave and the one on 16th and 6th Ave. I’m amazed by his graffiti work. The colors he uses are so vibrant. It’s so distinct that you don’t even need to see that it’s his work, you’ll just know.”

Jason is not only an artist, but he’s also a designer, writer and creative director. In addition, his colorful art works certainly make the city look even more beautiful and the quotes are very inspiring!

He was born in Salt Lake City, but fell in love the NY at an early age. His works can be seen in the fashion industry, as well as magazine, footwear and even in tattoos. We personally love the Statue of Liberty in his left arm!

Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia:Beacon presents Dia’s collection of art.

Expect everything from the 1960’s to the present days, as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. Phiuf!

Since its opening in May 2003, Dia:Beacon has helped transform the city of Beacon into a vibrant arts destination for visitors from the region, New York City, and beyond.

Their mission is:

“Dia Art Foundation is committed to advancing, realizing, and preserving the vision of artists. Dia fulfills its mission by commissioning single artist projects, organizing exhibitions, realizing site-specific installations, and collecting in-depth the work of a focused group of artists of the 1960s and 1970s.”

Also, don’t forget to visit their bookstore and coffee shop before you head back!

Lastly, the car trip takes around 1,5h, so it’s quite close to run off and check the place out during a weekend. You may also go up by train. You can get the Metro-North Railroad trains from Grand Central Terminal.

We love exploring not only New York City, but the gorgeous state of New York.

Sounds intriguing, right?!

With over 500 alluring and extraordinary show a year, these outstanding minds are ‘fascinated by the human condition and create performances that speak about our world and our time’.

They are now in NYC, with a spectacle called: Cuisine & Confessions.

Here’s what it’s all about:

“As individuals, we are ourselves composed of ingredients, a unique recipe of blood memories. The Kitchen. Blood memories. A recipe passed through generations. A memory so deeply embedded in our conscious, it takes carefully concocted smells and tastes to bring it to the surface.

Storytelling through food… this is the sweet taste of my childhood, of a summer breeze through a screen door. Or the hot-chocolate-dampened lips of a first kiss. Life happens in the kitchen. Late night confessionals over tisane and a pot of Nutella. Elaborately choreographed family meals. Lessons learned, secrets exchanged, bonds forged, reinforced by our most visceral of senses.

Accompanying the usual eye-popping flight of acrobatic choreography and pulsating music are the other three senses — the touch of hands in batter, the smell of cookies baking, the taste of roasted oregano — leading us through a span of times and countries, all the while the iconic kitchen our common meeting point.”


On The 7 Fingers website lists you can see the countless shows, artistic collaborations and other special events.

We also recommend going to the House of Yes, in Bushwick. They have some pretty unique events and shows if you enjoyed the super human circus.

The Greenwich Village is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Manhattan and there’s just so much to do there. Here are a few of our top picks.

For shows with upcoming bands, you can check out The Bitter End. If you want to go for dinner, you can try Rockin’ Raw for the vegans and Buvette if you enjoy a cool French cuisine. Banter Bar is great for a light meal and coffee! And, to see and be seen, go for a drink at Bar Pitti.

Dates: 11 – 16 April, 2017

Location: NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts – 566 LaGuardia Place

Singer Aline Muniz: In NYC, Directly from Brazil

Culture Music Aline Muniz Singer Portrait

We are so excited to have the Brazilian pop songwriter and singer Aline Muniz, in New York! We love when she flies in, since she lives between NYC and São Paulo, Brazil.

*Take a close look at the Music Clip above! Our Founder, Fê Paronetto, is part of this beautiful work!*

The singer Aline Muniz is definitely an amazing “multi-faceted” artist. She’s one of the leading exponents of the new and exciting Brazilian music scene.

She started at the young age of 15, fell in love with music and dance, and never stopped after that! Lucky us!!!

All through the Spring and Summer of 2017, Aline will promote a great project, with live performances in the US. Plus, a new original album is slated for a Fall 2017 release. We can guarantee that we’ll be hosting event with her, so keep your eyes opened! We can’t wait!

Aline will be part of one of our Secret Live Music Projects that will launch in a the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned and you’ll be able to come meet her in person!

Culture Music Aline Muniz Singer and Marco Vita
Aline with her Husband! We always agree when we hear: “Find a guy that will look at you, the way Aline’s husband looks at her!”

Here’s a bit more about her beautiful journey:

“Her first independent album ‘Da Pá Virada’ was released in 2008 with lead single “Básica” generating huge national buzz and visibility.

In 2011 Aline releases “Onde Tudo Faz Sentido”, her sophomore solo effort. It solidified her position among the new generation of MPB (Música Popular Brasileira) artists.

The, 2014 marks the release of ‘Outra’, Aline’s third album, this time supported by Sony Music Brasil. Several singles from the album receive strong radio airplay. The videos for songs “Dançando Com a Vida” and “Eu, Voce e Mais Ninguém” were an immediate hit on YouTube reaching well over 660.000 visualizations!”

See her Official YouTube Page! Her remarkable voice, her kind gestures and her flawless work will hypnotize you!

“Aline defines her work as ‘BPM’ as in ‘Brazilian Pop Music’, a term large enough to encompass her sophisticated compositional style and musical direction. She draws influences from Bossa Nova, classic MPB, Samba, international pop music, electronic and chill out sounds, Jazz and more. This musical eclecticism is what gives Aline the ability to create a truly fresh global pop sound.

Currently gearing up to launch her international career Aline is setting up base in New York City.

The project is set to be released in the early part of 2017. It will include music selected from her three previous releases plus several new and unreleased recordings.

As noted Brazilian music critic and producer Nelson Motta states: “The singer Aline Muniz shows style and talent”.”

…And we agree!

Walking is the right speed to understand” – Frédéric Gros, one of the artists curated by Gisela Gueiros for her upcoming exhibition!

This exhibition dialogs with Frédéric Gros’ book “A Philosophy of Walking”. Nine Brazilian artists are part of this ‘procession’. The works relate to or incorporate concepts explored in the book – such as strolling, repetition, nature, presence, and the urban landscape.

In Sandra Jávera and Alfonso Simelio’s mobile Stepped Gravity, 2016, we get a sense of the effortlessness of walking and its repetitive, fluid and monotonous movement. As dull as it can be, it is never tiresome. It may become a visual mantra in the same way that walking can be done for nothing: just to connect us to the pace of time passing.

Gustavo Prado presents us with Untitled, Contortionist series, 2016, reinterpretations of Lygia Clark’s participatory Bichos. They remind us of the traces a path leaves behind or a trail to follow. “To get there you must walk: walking in itself, as it takes time, establishes presence”, states Gros. They represent both endless possibility and the cycle of repetition.

Talita Zaragoza takes long walks herself in order to reach the places she photographs.

The photo So Long, 2016 was taken this summer in Alaska and seems like the perfect conclusion of a hike. As Gros beautifully puts it, “Once you no longer expect anything from the world on these aimless and peaceful walks, that is when the world delivers itself to you, gives it self, yields itself up.” Her drawing (Sfumatto, 2016) evokes topographical maps and the romantic dream of exploration.

To walk in nature, the writer reminds us, is to be perpetually distracted. Trees, flowers and the colors of the roads greet you and demand attention. Sandra Bacchi pays homage to two different trees in Untitled 7 and 8, Anatomy Series, 2016 which almost look like Courbet’s L’Origine du Monde as they open up generously and powerfully to the sky. “You are facing a mountain, walking among great trees, and you think: they are just there. They are there, they didn’t expect me, they were always there. They were there long before me and they will still be there long after me”, says Gros.

In a similar way, Gabriel Giucci uses graphite to depict a series of subtely differing rocks (Nero Marchina 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2015).

An observant walker knows that the shapes in nature, the stones, the bark, the leaves, the scents in the air differ from one another. The pace of each step gives us time for understanding the details that make everything unique.

Luiz d’Orey, with Untitled 27, 28 and 29, 2016, represents the flâneur in the context of this exhibition. A sensitive investigator of the urban environment, d’Orey begins by collecting remnants of posters being glued, removed or overpainted on construction fences. He later transforms these recycled bills into a two- dimensional representation of the actual building being constructed behind these walls. The multi-layered process focuses attention on the boundary between public and private, chaos and order.

In Gros’ thinking, walking causes absorption. Thalita Hamaoui’s dreamy paintings (These Memories Were Not Mine I and II, 2016) are intense but quiet, reminiscent of the mind that is emptied after a long walk. “You are finally hearing what has no vocation to be retranslated, recorded, reformatted. Before speaking, a man should see”, recommends the author.

Alice Quaresma noticed that she was letting her works travel independently as she mailed them to residencies, clients, and exhibitions around the world. The shipping boxes where she packed her work (From Inside Out I and II, 2016) are icons of portability and transit. Somehow, the bureaucratic poetry of postal handling mimics our own traveling experiences as we wonder.

If you are an art lover, let us organize some of the most amazing art tours in New York. If you have a corporate group coming in, we can arrange an exclusive experience.

Date: October 21st 2016
Time: 7pm – 10pm

Escaping NYC: Exploring Narrowsburg In Upstate NY With Juliette Hermant

Insider Interviews Juliette Hermant Narrowsburg By Julie Holder Powell

Upstate NY is gorgeous. Juliette Hermant, Founder of Maison Bergogne, gave us a full itinerary so you can visit and enjoy a long weekend in Narrowsburg!

Insider Interviews Juliette Hermant Narrowsburg By Julie Holder Powell

Upstate NY is so beautiful and most visitors and even New Yorkers don’t know about the amazing people and places they can find.

Our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, fell in love with Maison Bergogne, an antique, décor and design services shop in Narrowsburg, upstate New York. So, she decided to interview Juliette Hermant, the owner.

To start, Juliette Hermant is a painter, photographer and interior designer, who moved to the U.S. from Paris in 2007. She lived in Los Angeles working as an artist. Then, moved to the East Coast in search of a stronger sense of community.

Juliette didn’t really find it in Williamsburg (where she lived). Her strong, buzzing energy left her yearning for a different life. She wanted a place she could do meaningful work that was needed while feeling grounded in nature.

So, in 2012, she ended up in Narrowsburg, a historic Catskills hamlet perfectly situated along the Delaware River, just across the bridge from Pennsylvania.

There is a long history of artists in the town. So, it seemed full of potential to her.

Juliette acquired a beautiful brick 1920’s industrial building that had been boarded up and breathed new life into it, opening Maison Bergogne. She filled this emporium with antiques and vintage pieces, 90% of which are local to the Catskills, and offered her interior design services to local homeowners and businesses in partnership with Anie Stanley of Woolheater Wares.

She also set about engaging with the community to work on revitalizing the area. Moreover, this included developing a community garden and tending beehives on her rooftop. Over the years, she has become very invested in enhancing the town through initiatives with the Narrowsburg Beautification Group and Main Street Merchants.

Juliette’s interest in permaculture has crystallized through her latest venture Fish & Bicycle. Foodies and makers collaborate with her desire to serve the Catskill’s bountiful flavors through local feasts, while also passing on skills and knowledge.  

Sharing flavors create bonds between people, which works to foster a sense of stable, collaborative community. Join them for a leap in the Catskills through their one-of-a-kind events & workshops and get a bite of their terroir cuisine with Fish & Bicycle’s catering services.
Fish & Bicycle Apiaries now offers the opportunity to join a honey-share, where your contribution supports permaculture ethics and edible pollinator’s friendly-gardens around her small town, as well as Juliette’s nearby Monarch butterfly nursery.
Launch date is still to be announced, so stay tuned!

Below are Juliette’s top tips in Narrowsburg and surroundings. It’ll be of great help to plan your Day-Trip or Weekend-Trip:


Part of Narrowsburg’s charm is its ideal location, perched above the picturesque “Big Eddy” of the Delaware River. Wild flora and fauna abound, including white-tailed deer, bald eagles and black bear. Lately, there has been an influx of New York City transplants and visitors to the area. In addition, new businesses are springing up.

The most beautiful approach to the town is along Route 97, a scenic byway that runs along the river. And, the nearest bus and train stations are more than half an hour away – in Monticello and Port Jervis, respectively. So, coming up by car is a good idea. (You can rent your car through our Concierge Services).

“In addition to his day job as Editor of Out Magazine, Aaron Hicklin runs a bookshop named One Grand Books, on Main Street.

He asked his glamorous circle of friends and acquaintances (including Tilda Swinton, Jay McInerney and Marianne Faithful) to name the 10 books they’d take with them if they were marooned on a desert island and has stocked the shop accordingly. Plus, occasionally, local authors have readings there.”

Le Petite Cabine

Insider-Interviews-Juliette-Hermant-Narrowsburg-Le-Petite-Cabine

If you need time away from the city and want to be immersed in nature, this is surely what you’re looking for.

“Just a 5-minutes drive from town, this rustic 1950 timber-frame cabin delivers quiet seclusion in nature. Le Petite Cabine boasts private frontage on the bucolic Ten Mile River.

A clawfoot bathtub and an outdoor shower and a fireplace made of blue stone. In addition, plenty of old-fashioned in-the-mountains charm, thanks in large part to the artful styling of Maison Bergogne and Woolheater Ware’s collaboration.

You can also inquire about rental, time-share options and the nearby queer-friendly artists’ retreat with Smokey Belles.

“With their special brand of tongue-in-cheek humor, set designer Roswell Hamrick and his partner, fashion maven Johnny Pizzolatto, bring loads of style and character to this delightful Stickett Inn.

Plus, it’s located just 20 minutes South, in Barryville. From the little shack in front that functions as kind of lobby—think Intelligenstia coffee, Malin & Goetz candles and locally made treats — to the themed rooms, outdoor hot tub and fire pits, it offers fun and relaxation in equal measure.”

Prices range from $150-$245.

“Inquire at Maison Bergogne for a tour of this lovely garden dedicated to permaculture, heirloom plants and pollinator species, called Tusten Heritage Community Garden.

Inside are 22 raised beds designed by founder and artist Andrea Reynosa, who referenced the I Ching and used the elemental symbols as a template. So, if you’re lucky, you may get to taste some of the wonderful vegetables and herbs. And, it’s all grown by local residents and business owners.”

Location: Behind the Narrowsburg Public Library. From Bridge Street you turn down Demauro Lane by the Town Hall.

“This mini chain of eateries, Ba and Me, is a great example of the new fast-casual: delicious, healthy and totally addictive. Owner Nhi Mundy saw a real need for ethnic food in the area and opened up two Vietnamese cafes.

The first, in Callicoon (about 15 minutes north of Narrowsburg), is a glorified takeout window. The second, for which Maison Bergogne and Woolheater Wares collaborated on the décor, is over the bridge in Honesdale, PA. And, they also offer indoor seating. Don’t miss the summer rolls!”

Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance Beautifies The New York Subway

Curiosities City Secrets New York Subway Passage Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance

The city’s Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance has partnered up with 5 artists to beautify the New York Subway!

We all know how creepy the subways passages in New York City can be. Garbage, dirt, weird smells that you have no intention of knowing what it is. Plus, the little friendly rats are always there to entertain while we wait for the next train.

Well, the visitors and locals that are constantly passing by the tunnel that connects Broadway to 191st Street subway station are happier than ever before! This area, at the very Northern tip of Manhattan, is called Fort George.

That area has actually quite a few interesting places to visit. Plus, a few historical sights and landscapes that are gorgeous! If you are interested in heading that way, but prefer heading up with an expert tour guide, let our experts arrange this for you!

The city’s Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) selected 5 artists to help change the atmosphere there. NoMAA is a non-profit arts service organization that cultivates, supports and promotes the works of artists and arts organizations in Northern Manhattan.

Artists from all over across the globe applied for this work, but the chosen ones were mostly locals.

The final chosen names were:

  • Fernando Carlo Jr. (a.k.a. Cope 2)
  • Queens-based artist Nick Kuszyk’s
  • Andrea von Bujdoss
  • Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn from Maryland
  • and the Chilean artist Nelson Rivas

Don’t hesitate to take some time and visit the scene. And, like we said above, if you want to visit the area, but have no idea how to get there or even, where to go, let our experts organize a cool experience for you!

It’s definitely worth it!
