HU BING Shattered Transformation

HU BING transforms broken bottles…..cracked glass……shattered windshields……..and creates a “Thing of Beauty”…….[which is in the eye of the beholder…is it not?”.]

The exhibition was in the window of the Flatiron Building on 23rd street.

A model was doing her shoot in front of the windows.

A WALK ON BROADWAY 23rd street to 16th street

I headed down Broadway for a morning coffee at” BEECHERS CHEESE”……….[with the worlds best Mac & Cheese].  They serve FONTE COFFEE ROASTERS…………sublime brew!

The Fig & Cheese………..grilled………what an indulgence.  You will beg for another….and another……..

Starting at the Flatiron Building with an art installation in the window by………...Hu Bing.  And on down the street to ABC Carpets……….with more crazy windows.

So much cheese……So little time.

LUNCH WITH THE LOVELY LAURA

 

 

We met at AYZA…….Wine and Chocolate Bar on West 31st street.

Laura and Chrystie…………and a very sweet waitress helped us decide which chocolate is the most divine.  Jacque Torres champagne truffles or ……..

Molten Chocolate cupcake with raspberry sauce.  Good choice.

We paused for water at the garden in the middle of the street in front of the Flatiron Building.

Giant Head sculpture in Madison Square Park by the Spanish artist Jaume Plensa.  Her name is “Echo”………..44 feet tall……inspited by the Greek mythological nymph.

She was having a ball with her chalk.

Stopped for YOGO on the corner of the park.

We picked up a Rustic Tuscan loaf at Eataly food emporium on Fifth Avenue.

Georgia peaches were enticing.

We strolled up Fifth Avenue to 31st street……..toward the Empire State Building

We liked the menu…………but we just ate!  Back later………..for dinner.

We headed for the High Line, the new park built on the railroad tracks along the Hudson River.

Met two really charming students….Rosemary and Brittany…

so cute…..I wanted to take them home with me…………for tea on the terrace.

We stopped in at the BORTOLAMI Gallery on West 20th street.

The current show is by the artist Thilo Heinzman.

Laura met one of her clients………….the director of the gallery.  Cute guy!
