Frank Gehry in NYC

Here's a recent shot of the just completed building that Frank Gehry designed for Barry Diller's media/internet/whatever company on Manhattan's Westside Highway. I love how it looks like an iceberg that has just crashed into the city. The abandoned train trestle in front is going to become a landscaped promenade à la viaduct des Arts in Paris.

Happy 4th!

Okay, we've all seen fireworks but New York City really puts on a show. We saw them on the 4th (why do other municipalities fire up on other days?). From out perch on Columbia Street--a very on the verge neighborhood in carrol gardens/cobble hill brooklyn--we got to see the New Jersey Fireworks and then the Big Apple show, about 45 minutes of the best that the Grucci family has to offer.
