Art House A man’s home is his castle. For Minimalist artist Donald Judd (1928– 1994), his castle was an 1870 five-story, cast-iron industrial building in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, which he purchased in 1968 for the bargain price—by today’s standards—of $68,000. It was here, at 101 Spring Street, that Judd lived and kept his studio in New York, installing his own works (above) as well as pieces by his contemporaries. Dan Flavin’s fluorescent light piece (above, left) runs the entire length of Judd’s fifthfloor bedroom. Now a museum, the property has reopened for tours, following a three-year restoration. » 101 Spring Street, 212.219.2747

The Joyce of Dance For the final offering of its 2013 spring/summer season, The Joyce Theater goes out with a bang. Ballet v6.0 is a mini festival of six explosive emerging companies giving 12 performances—two each—of dynamic dance. Diverse as these American troupes are, ranging in ballet styles from neoclassical to modern, they have this in common: They are all small companies, whose dancers and choreographers have chosen to create outside the mainstream large-company setting. Among them is Company C Contemporary Ballet from California (below). Company C makes its Joyce debut this month, but its New York connection goes way back: Artistic Director Charles Anderson danced with New York City Ballet from 1985 to 1993. » Ballet v6.0,

This Price Is Right There is poetry in small things, a fact that visitors to the two New York exhibitions devoted to the late West Coast artist Ken Price (1935–2012) will immediately appreciate. As a sculptor working in clay, Price had an affinity for cups; as a draftsman working in acrylics (never watercolors), the cup was an equally liberating motif, around which he could improvise, even introduce frogs as whimsical and brilliantly colored handles in the 1967 work on paper “Frog Cups” (right), on view at The Drawing Center. » Ken Price: Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Works on Paper, 1962–2010, The Drawing Center, 35 Wooster St., 212.219.2166, thru Aug. 18; Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave., 212.535.7710, thru Sept. 22.

Kaplan Penthouse, with its skyline views, begin at 10 p.m., last an hour and include a glass of wine in the ticket price. On the roster are the rock stars of chamber music in their festival debut, the Calder Quartet (left). The quartet’s program is a marriage of the old, Beethoven’s String Quartet in C-sharp, Op. 131, and the new, Thomas Adès’ Mozart-inspired Arcadiana, Op. 12. Beethoven is not around to attest to the foursome’s musicianship, but Adès is. “When they do sit down and play, whatever it is, they really play the socks off it,” he enthuses. “I love the way they play my music—it seems to come really naturally.” » Calder Quartet, Stanley H.

behind the curtain news » by Francis Lewis

Taking a Chance on Love For Bill Berry, being director of the new Broadway musical comedy First Date (left) entails so much more than helping the actors find their characters’ motivation or polishing the show with its creators. “We come into rehearsal daily and get updates from the team on their latest dating exploits,” Berry says. “I shall protect the innocent, but on more than one occasion I have been texted by members of the company begging for a bailout call much like the one that occurs in the show.” Berry vividly remembers one of his own first dates, with a guy he thought “could be ‘the one.’” Alas, it was spring, and he suffers from hay fever. “The day of the date, I was in full-on sneeze mood. At the end, he said he would call, but for some reason he never did. I can’t imagine what he didn’t find appealing in my constant sneezing and red eyes.” The lesson learned? “Take the Benadryl and cancel the date.” » First Date, Longacre Theatre, 220 W. 48th St., 212.239.6200

Forever Tango (below) lives up to its name. This is the third time the show has been on Broadway since June 1997, when it opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre (coincidentally, the same theater where it is playing thru Sept. 15). But to think that Forever Tango is the same show now that it was then is to do it—and the art form it celebrates—a disservice. “Tango is a living art,” creator/director Luis Bravo has said. “It is always changing, evolving, transforming into something new. It is a popular cycle that reflects, in a fantastic way, the ‘character’ of the Argentinean people.” Every performance is unique, he claims. “The work becomes new because the artists make it new every night as they climb on the stage and give it life as they dance. So, every night the show evolves with the conception of the dancers and with the humanity of the people who watch them dance.” » Forever Tango, Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 W. 48th St., 212.239.6200

Family Drama Plotwise, The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin (above) is about the devastating reunion of a father and son after the father is released from jail. Thematically, it deals with redemption and forgiveness. But for its author, Steven Levenson, the play is “ultimately about change, about posing the question of whether or not people can actually change. All of these characters,” he says, “have been shaped indelibly—crippled, really—by the things that have happened to them, the decisions they’ve made or not made. The question I ask myself, and that I want


IN New YORK | august 2013 |

to pose to the audience, is whether these people can escape that cycle, whether they can actually heal and move forward, or whether they’ve been trapped by their own circumstances. I think there are different ways of reading the ending of the play and what it says about the possibility of change. I know I have my interpretation, but I’m interested in leaving it an open question for the audience to decide for themselves.” » The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin, Roundabout Theatre Company, Laura Pels Theatre, 111 W. 46th St., 212.719.1300

great dining experiences » by Lois Levine

Cultured Dining Here is an example of great New York City multitasking: Take in a splendid meal while also enjoying a splendid museum. This is the idea behind Caffè Storico (below) at the New-York Historical Society. The restaurant pulls off cheery and elegant simultaneously, while throwing in some culture: bright yellow banquettes, stunning gold chandeliers and white shelves displaying 19th-century china from the museum’s collection. Dishes such as whipped baccala and octopus soppressata are delicate and well-seasoned, and a slow-roasted chicken is accented with sautéed fennel and chanterelle mushrooms. A fine museum, a great meal, a perfect day. » Caffè Storico, 170 Central Park West., 212.485.9211

Italian Contrasts There is a charm to finding an Old World Italian restaurant with a New World spin. Abboccato offers a traditional Italian décor: The center of the restaurant is anchored with a handsome wine case, while large leather booths make for spacious comfort when dining. On the menu, contemporary Italian dishes (grilled yellowfin tuna, wild mushroom flatbread) are offered alongside choices for the Italian traditionalist (caprese salad, veal saltimbocca, nonna’s meatballs and a wide variety of pastas). Try mixing old and new for dinner: Pair a lemony salmon tartare with tagliatelle and Bolognese meat sauce, a harmony of light and hearty, as is a roasted beet salad with a pan-seared veal chop, accompanied by caramelized Brussels sprouts, roasted tomatoes and pancetta. For dessert, indulge in a classic Italian tiramisu with a modern pear martini and you will have pleased old and new palates happily. » Abboccato, 136 W. 55th St., 212.265.4000

Downtown Daniel When I think of a-let’s-get-super-dressed-upand-go-out-for-a-truly-fine dining experience, I think of Daniel, Daniel Boulud’s classic haute Upper East Side restaurant. So, seeing another side to the chef/entrepreneur after visiting DBGB Kitchen and Bar was a surprising delight indeed. The Downtown restaurant defines industrial chic: lots of steel and dark woods, copper kitchenware, and bottles of wine, aged vinegars and dry goods all displayed on wooden shelves that frame the main dining room. The restaurant is known for its pungently fresh market oysters (left), housemade sausages and more than 20 varieties of beer (including after-dinner brews!) along with spectacular burgers like “The Piggie” (pulled pork and beef with jalapeño mayonnaise). This is formidable chow from a formidable chef, but at DBGB, feel free to go casual. » DBGB Kitchen and Bar, 299 Bowery, 212.933.5300

Since it began, over a century ago, nonrepresentational painting—aka abstract art—has split, divided and subdivided into a variety of schools and styles. Six contemporary approaches are presented by an international array of artists in the group show Shape Shifting. The idea for the exhibit, says curator Susan Eley, originated with the work of Carlos Puyol who, in canvases such as “Untitled” (left), imposes Pop Art-like acrylic blankets over an Abstract Expressionist array of squiggles. “My paintings are an affirmation of ‘the real,’” the artist maintains. Ah, but which is the reality—the calm curtains of color, or the chaos beneath? » Susan Eley Fine Art, 46 W. 90th St., 917.952.7641, thru Sept. 6

Iconic Americana Maybe it’s the August heat, or the joy of 10 years in business. But there was a definite giddiness in the Mike Weiss Gallery press release that hit our in-box recently, announcing how it was “pleased to present a questionable low point in our program: Birth of a Legend, by nomadic artist Cameron Gray.” Then again, it’s hard to play it artistically straight when describing Gray’s work: Faces made of fake foodstuffs (think: salad noses, hot dog mouths and hamburger eyes), huge prints of 1980s pinups with a “Dionysian smorgasbord” of digital images flashing on their faces and chests or portraits of movie stars with snacks for eyes, as in “Marlon Brando With Donuts” (right, 2013). Blending two American icons, hunks and junk food—it can’t miss. » Mike Weiss Gallery, 520 W. 24th St., 212.691.6899, thru Aug. 17

Timeless Some antiques enchant because they seem so redolent of their period; others endear because of their enduringly modern air. The furniture of Jacques Adnet (19001984) falls into the latter category: Pieces such as this coffee table (right), though dating from ca. 1950, don’t seem dated—perhaps due to the French designer’s penchant for wrapping items in leather, integrated with glass, metal or wood. He tended to keep shapes streamlined, too; here, the only ornamentation is the bell-shaped brass fixtures echoing the wavy curve of the leather “legs.” » Maison Gerard, 43 E. 10th St., 212.674.7611

Theme and Variations “One of Picasso’s notable characteristics was his need to transform existing works of art,” the artist’s dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler once wrote. Case in point: “Portrait of a Woman After Cranach the Younger” (above, 1958). The linocut references the Renaissance artist’s aristocratic paintings, specifically an image of a noblelooking lady done almost 400 years earlier. Picasso reproduces her pose, shadow and garments almost exactly, down to her cap, but reduces the original’s subtle palette to five bold colors. And, of course, imparts his famed asymmetrical approach to the face and elsewhere—even the necklaces are askew. “This need to transform,” Kahnweiler noted, “was certainly an important characteristic of Picasso’s genius.” » Hubert Gallery, 1046 Madison Ave., 212.628.2922

OF YOURSELF. Prestige Piece With the rise of the middle class in the 1700s, the secretary desk became a significant piece of furniture—a way for owners to show off their status (so many drawers, so little time) and for cabinetmakers their skill. This rare, ebonized example, from early-19th-century Vienna, seems simultaneously futuristic (its ovoid shape and glossy black surface) and period (its gilded paw feet and cornucopias, typical of the Empire style), with the penned fruit basket motif in the center offering an endearingly bucolic touch. When closed, the lyre secretaire (as models of this shape were also called) has the air of an upright beast. When open, it reveals a surprise: an intricate “prospect,” or architectural scene, that includes a mini staircase leading up to tiny columns, parquet floors and an arched ceiling, all reflected in mirrored panels. Both the stairs and pseudo-brick walls surrounding them slide out to reveal hidden drawers—ideal for concealing a wad of bills or a billet-doux. Because with great wealth comes a great need to keep secrets. » Carlton Hobbs LLC, 60 E. 93rd St., 212.423.9000

Soaring Sanctuary

Theater District skyline views … a taste of Mexico in West Midtown … cocktails made with cold-pressed juices

What’s in a name? In the case of Haven Rooftop (above), everything. The 2,500-square-foot space impresses—cedar furnishings, breezy curtained cabanas, well-groomed greenery, two bars and an elevated V.I.P. patio. On special occasions, there’s live entertainment—you may be lucky enough to spot a fire-breather or seductive dancers, scantily clad in feathers and body paint, like sultry sirens fallen from the clouds. Cocktails, such as the Night Sky (acaiblueberry vodka and fresh lemonade), can be sipped overlooking a Theater District cityscape, with modern glass towers standing in contrast against the oxidized green of old copper church steeples. Feels just like haven on Earth. » Haven Rooftop, The Sanctuary Hotel New York, 132 W. 47th St., 10th fl., 212.466.9000

Healthy living has reached new heights (the 26th floor, to be exact). Soaked (below), a Downtown rooftop roost, serves thrist-quenching, summery cocktails made with organic ingredients and cold-pressed juices without excess sugars or artificial flavors. The offerings, delivered by waitresses in denim uniforms, range from the honeydew martini (Hendrick’s gin, cucumber, honeydew, Thai basil, fresh lime and algae) to the grapefruit-lemongrass mimosa (orange, grapefruit and lemongrass juices, Domaine Chandon bubbly and Aperol). Surrounded by stringed lights and charmingly overgrown potted grasses, you can soak up the view with a drink that’s good for the body and mind—or at least it feels nice to tell yourself that. » Soaked, Mondrian Soho, 150 Lafayette St., PH2, 212.389.1000

Down in Mexico The Coasters sang the old-school R&B hit first, but you just may find that hot-weather hymn on your lips after a visit to Tequila Park Taqueria (left), an open-air bastion of—you guessed it—tequila and tacos. A beachy, south-ofthe-border charm pervades the space, with Aztec-inspired pillows and throws and an innovative, Mexican-flavored drink menu, catagorized into concoctions both “common” (a classic margarita) and “uncommon” (bubblegum-baconinfused tequila with grenadine). When the sun sets, a giant outdoor screen illuminates to play black-and-white flicks. ¡Que maravilloso! » Tequila Park Taqueria, Hudson New York, 356 W. 58th St., 212.554.6217

Waldo Watching

There is a reason why Peter Luger (top) recently made a CBS list of the Seven Top Bars for Guys’ Night Out in New York City. The dark wood paneling and simple, rustic décor, the alwayspacked bar with serious suits (and serious drinking to go with it) and the signature porterhouse steaks and juicy burgers (the description of the restaurant’s meat is painstakingly detailed on the restaurant website) make for a manly good time, and one of the best reasons to cross the East River into Brooklyn. » Peter Luger Steak House, 178 Broadway, Brooklyn, 718.387.7400

So, now that Where’s Waldo has become New York City’s official Family Ambassador, you can take the Big Apple dignitary, complete with his cute fuzzy cap, to the beach or pool for that last burst of summer—and have your son join you in the fun. Vilebrequin, the well-known swimwear brand for men and boys, has designed a series of “Where’s Waldo” swimming trunks (below) that pay homage to Waldo’s signature red-and-white striped shirt and are part of the store’s Father & Son Collection. The swim trunks have braided tying cords with engraved tips and a signature navy label. Every dad loves to bond with his son. Now, as you’re jumping waves or diving into the pool, you can make that happen. » Vilebrequin, 1007 Madison Ave., 212.650.0353

Beyond the Watch What a watch. There is nothing classier than the look of a fine watch, and the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback is just that kind of classic timepiece. The water-resistant chronograph made of stainless steel, also has a see-through sapphire crystal back and a black leather strap. (A second interchangeable strap is included.) The watch also offers a power reserve of three days. Now you just need someone to ask you the time. » Officine Panerai, 545 Madison Ave., 212.223.1562

Walk on Air

Spanish footwear expert Camper recently stepped up its artistic game at its fourth and latest New York City location on Fifth Avenue. The label and influential Japanese design firm Nendo have merged their talents and created a space intended to give Camper’s men’s and women’s shoe styles a literal “walking-on-air” quality. White resin models of the “Pelotas,” one of the line’s signature sneakers, adorn the walls and almost float in an orderly mirage all the way up to the ceiling (right). It’s a dizzyingly impressive effect, contrasting nicely with the store’s large mirrors and overall sleek space. Clearly, Camper has perfected the mix of art and function that is key to a successful city shoe-shopping experience. » Camper, 522 Fifth Ave., 212.221.3529

The Art of the Bow

Gold Standard

You can throw the saying “All that glitters is not gold” to the wind—Orogold, a skincare line known for its 24-karat goldinfused creams, has opened its first retail location in the city. The pricey metal has been used by queens for centuries, as it creates complexions that truly shine. Now, even commoners can indulge: The 24-karat Vitamin C Set (above) features a facial cleanser, serum and mask enriched with gold flecks and antioxidants to both illuminate and energize the skin for a youthful glow. » Orogold, 118 E. 57th St., 212.371.7242

aria’s M got game Maria sharapova—Tennis star, model, businesswoman and philanthropist—doesn’t ever slow down


remendous career success, a model’s good looks, loving parents: Tennis star Maria Sharapova’s cup runneth over. The 26-year-old, who lives in Brandenton, Florida, has won four Grand Slam titles—and this past spring almost claimed a fifth at the French Open in a hard-fought finals match against Serena Williams. In June, she was ranked No. 3 in the world by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and has won an impressive 29 WTA singles titles. Sharapova made her professional breakthrough in 2004 when, at age 17, she defeated Serena Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon final for her first Grand Slam singles title. Away from the courts, she has been a feature model for a number of national publications, including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In addition to all this, Sharapova designs tennis clothing for Nike as well as a line of handbags and shoes for Cole Haan—her ballet flats are especially sought after. She has even come out with a candy collection, called Sugarpova, available at But it isn’t only about tennis and business for Sharapova. She also makes it a priority to give back, working with the U.N. to help children in the Ukraine’s Chernobyl region, where her family’s roots lie and which still faces the aftereffects of the 1986 nuclear meltdown. Last year, besides receiving the ESPY award for Best Female Tennis Player, she was also honored with a medal from Russia for her philanthropic activity. Next up on Sharapova’s busy schedule is the US Open, which begins on Aug. 26.


You were “discovered” as a child by Martina Navratilova. Are you still in touch? Martina is an inspiration and an

institution in tennis. Luckily, the tennis community is somewhat small, so our paths cross often. Your parents came to this country when you were a kid to help you move ahead in tennis. Do you view them as your greatest supporters? Of course. I am so grateful for

the opportunity they provided me, and for the sacrifices made along the way. Let’s talk about your charity work. You were appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for the U.N. Development Programme to help with issues related to Chernobyl, which is near your birthplace. The Maria Sharapova Foundation is helping to raise education-scholarship money for children in the Chernobyl region. And you also have helped with hurricane relief in Florida. How would you describe the importance of giving back through charitable work? It’s tremendously important to me. I became

a U.N. Ambassador back in 2007, and I’ve had some invaluable opportunities to give support to causes that I have a deep personal connection with. Through the Maria Sharapova Foundation, I support the children of Chernobyl—an area that has faced one of the most epic disasters in our lifetime. It means so much to me to be a part of that region’s comeback story—we’re so excited about the upcoming [Winter] Olympic Games in Sochi [a resort city located in Krasnodar Krai, Russia].

Tell us about your dog! A Pomeranian named Dolce, yes? You’re known to be a doting dog owner. I spoil him rot-

ten! He’s the best. I love when I am able to travel to tournaments with him. You are also a big music fan. Yes. The Great Gatsy album with Lana Del Rey is the soundtrack of the summer. I love the way her voice moves between haunting and wistful. I also love Florence the Machine and Rihanna. You have a line of candy, Sugarpova—the lemon-lime gumballs that look like tennis balls are especially cute. And on top of that, you design tennis wear, and you’ve designed some nontennis clothing as well. Being a busi-

nesswoman and a business owner is a true passion of mine. I launched my Sugarpova candy collection last August, and what a year it has been! I tackle everything head-on, and I’m involved in every decision made from creative direction to growth strategies to taste testing! I’m lucky to work with a lot of brands like Nike, Porsche, Tag Heuer, Samsung, Evian and Head—but running my own business feels really rewarding.

You’re known for keeping your cool on the court and not getting rattled if you make a mistake. How do you it? The same

principles that make you a successful athlete can also make you successful in life. On the court, it is most important to stay goal-driven. Being able to focus on the bigger picture—two, three, four moves ahead—is paramount. If you allow yourself to get upset over mistakes, you disrupt your focus. Mistakes are going to happen—understanding that and building from them, while striving for your ultimate success, is key. What do you enjoy most when you’re in New York City? On tennis: “Being able to focus on the bigger picture—two, three, four moves ahead—is paramount,” says Sharapova.

Once humble purveyors of postcards and prints, museum stores have morphed into sophisticated specialty retailers—their wares ranging from handblown glass to high-tech toys to designer scarves. Shopping is truly an art form at these elite establishments. By Troy Segal

cial soiree? No, it’s The Store at MAD, in the Museum of Arts and Design (2 Columbus Circle, 212.299.7700). Since its establishment in 2008, the shop has set out to become “a premier destination for well-designed crafts and objects,” says Vice President of Retail and Brand Development Franci Sagar. It’s not alone. In the last few years, New York City museums have stepped up their retailing game, becoming eager players in a town where shopping is a beloved sport. Their emporia have morphed from a few dusty shelves of prints and postcards to stand-alone destinations— many, like The Store at MAD, even keep hours outside their parent museum’s—with inventory that’s evolved from souvenir-oriented to sophisticated. The trend reflects the need to “become more relevant to consumers’ lives,” notes Metropolitan Museum of Art General Merchandise Manager David Wargo. “In today’s digital age, people don’t need a postcard to take home a memory. If they buy something, they want to use it—have it be a part of their routine.” The Met should know: Between its main store in the museum (1000 Fifth Ave., 212.396.5175) and branches in Rockefeller Center, the Cloisters and New York/New Jersey area airports, it carries over 8,500 types of merchandise, making it one of the biggest museum retailers in town—not to mention one of the oldest: “We’ve been doing reproductions almost ever since we opened our Some might say that the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s most famous artwork is its own building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (left). Its store carries pieces that riff off the iconic rotunda, from porcelain mugs to cuff bracelets designed by Pico (below).

the scene: an artisanal jewelry trunk show. It’s cocktail hour, and the setting sun sets sparkling the stone floor and various glass objets from around the world, displayed on curving shelves. The crowd—well-dressed women, smartly tailored men—examines the pieces handcrafted from natural wood, bone and horn, while sipping wine and nibbling Terra chips, and chatting with designer Catherine De Groote.

doors in 1870,” Wargo says. While the museum often turns to outside talent for exhibit tie-ins—for PUNK: Chaos to Couture (thru Aug. 14), its shop offers Tom Binns razor-blade and safety-pin jewelry, T-shirts by Dolce & Gabbana and even hair dyes from Manic Panic—the majority of its items are unique, developed internally by the museum’s own design division. By definition, products have to relate to its permanent collection—either as an outright duplication (for example, a copy of the clock that hung in designer Louis Comfort Tiffany’s home) or an adaptation—taking a pattern or image and executing it in a different medium, as, say, a shawl or tie that uses one of Arts & Crafts designer William Morris’ wallpaper prints. Textiles and clothing are the museum’s most popular items, Wargo says: People relate to the museum via “something they wear, touch, look at every day.” While The Met revels in repros, the Museum of Modern Art—another big player on the store scene, with its flagship boutique on-site (11 W. 53rd St., 212.708.9700), as well as freestanding Design Stores across the street and in SoHo— takes an opposite approach. Only about a quarter of its stock is directly connected to exhibits or the permanent collection, says Emmanuel Plat, director of merchandising for MoMA retail. “What makes us different: We’re really a design store”— which means, essentially, carrying cool stuff. Plat and his team travel the world, perpetually looking for an assortment of furniture, furnishings and personal items—some serious, some quirky—that are both practical and visually pleasing, innovative yet enduring icons of style, such as the sticklike Satellite Bowls or the Sky Umbrella, with its cheery blue-and-white interior. Along with being vetted by curators, the items reflect With paper-and-cotton works such as John Babcock’s “Searching New Kingdoms” (above, 1988), the Museum of Arts and Design celebrates the intersection of fine and decorative arts. The Store at MAD does likewise, with its independent artisanal offerings, such as Tsunami Glassworks’ strawberry and saffron-hued tubes (right). IN New YORK | august 2013 |

Whether on-site or online, the Whitney Museum of American Art’s shop specializes in merchandise themed to born-in-the-U.S.A. masters’ works, from a mini replica of Robert Indiana’s “LOVE” sculpture (left) to prints of Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” (below). Bringing the public to the cutting edge has always been the Museum of Modern Art’s mantra, be it via a 2010 Masters chair by Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet (above) in its Design Store or a Picasso masterpiece like “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” (facing page, 1907) on its walls.

MoMA in a larger sense. “The museum’s mission has always been to educate the public about modern art and design,” Plat notes, and, through these objects, “that’s our mission, too.” If The Met and MoMA’s stores are the philharmonics of museum retailing, that of the Neue Galerie (1084 Fifth Ave., 212.628.6200) is “a chamber orchestra,” jokes Director Renée Price. The inventory is small but choice—extremely choice, with many items (some of which are made to order) running in the three and four figures. Like The Met, the Neue Galerie embraces reproductions, of the best kind: imitations of the tableware, jewelry, textiles and housewares created by the early-20th-century Austrian and German designers to which the museum is devoted, such as Rundes Modell cutlery, recreated by Alessi and looking as fresh today as it did when Josef Hoffmann designed it in 1906-07, or a copy of a Koloman Moser brooch, for the current Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897-1907 show (thru Sept. 2). The store also offers limited-edition collaborations with modern designers—i.e., a tapestry tote by MZ Wallace—all in the spirit of the Secessionist, Wiener Werkstätte and Bauhaus artists who felt every aspect of life should be part of an aesthetic environment. Speaking of which: The store

displays its objets in the former powder room and its books in, appropriately, the library of a 1914 Beaux Arts mansion—the Neue Galerie’s headquarters. Another historic home provides much of the charm of The Morgan Shop (The Morgan Library & Museum, 225 Madison Ave., 212.590.0390), which occupies two of the original rooms of the famed financier’s family manse—a music room, adorned with gilt moldings, marble fireplaces and two mirrors facing each other, and an adjoining chamber adorned with bay windows. Through them, the store makes a pretty picture on its residential side street—which might explain why “we get a lot of people just coming in for the shop,” claims Director of Merchandising Services Sean Hayes. Everything relates to the museum’s collection, and since Pierpont Morgan collected everything from geodes to Gutenberg Bibles, this makes for a pretty eclectic mix of merch. The homey array ranges from definitive monographs, like Monika Grzymala: 11 Works 2000–2011 (commemorating the Berlin artist’s current on-site

installation, thru Nov. 3) to Shakespearean foliolike leather notebooks; stationery and notecards, with facsimiles of firstedition art the museum owns, are big, as is anything with the impressively paneled library’s image on it. “We do as much unique merchandise as possible, for people to take a part of the Morgan with them,” Hayes explains. Giving people a chance to take a bit of the institution with them is also the aim of the Guggenheim Museum Store (Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Ave., 800.329.6109). Located at the base of the museum’s smaller rotunda (look up to see its spiral), it greets visitors with dozens of colorful mobiles, evocative of the designs of Alexander Calder. The inventory abounds in contemporary art and handmade goods—not necessarily exclusive, but that “connect with the Guggenheim’s clean, fresh, cutting-edge identity,” says Managing Director for Business Development Karen Meyerhoff. Still, the core products are logo-based, or evocative of the museum’s most famous possession: its own building. There are models of the IN New YORK | august 2013 |

The Rose Center for Earth and Space (above) is one of the most popular sections of the American Museum of Natural History; and one of the most popular items sold by its gadget-laden, scienceinspired store is a telescope, such as this refracting model by Meade (right), which has given many budding astronomers their start.


Frank Lloyd Wright-designed edifice, white porcelain mugs (and soon, more tableware) that evoke the famed rotunda and even a collection of paints in “gallery colors.” While most museum stores carry a mix of merchandise, their collections tend to evoke their specialties. The American Museum of Natural History (Central Park West, at W. 79th St., 212.769.5100) even divides its retail outlets by branches of science (the Cosmic Shop, the DinoStore). Its bazaarlike trilevel flagship, off the main lobby, carries everything from sake sets to chemistry sets. Yet, with its bronze pteranodon skeleton mobiles flying over the stairway with a vertebrae railing, it seems especially dedicated to delighting children, with ingenious items they’ll find either educational (translucent Magna-

The Neue Galerie specializes in turn-of-the-20th-century German and Austrian artists, as in its Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897-1907 show (left); its shop features high-end reproductions of their works, such as black-and-white crystalware by Josef Hoffmann, originally designed in 1912 (right).

Tiles building blocks), intellectual (a book of Theodore Roosevelt Quotes & Wisdom) or fun (packets of freeze-dried astronaut ice cream). Most of the goods in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian store, housed in the handsome former Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House (1 Bowling Green, 212.514.3767), are made by Native Americans from North and Latin America; the marvel is their range—from traditional Navajo talking sticks to modern Pueblo horsehair pottery, from Kuna wall hangings to Northeastern Woodland tribe deerskin bracelets. In the Museum of the City of New York shop (1220 Fifth Ave., 212.534.1672), “everything has a New York theme to it—past, present and future, which is what the museum celebrates,” says Director of Merchandising & Visitor Services Peter Capriotti. That includes magnets with images drawn from the 100,000-plus vintage photos in the collection, a mesh disco bag inspired by the recent Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced exhibit or a handblown ribbon vase by NYC artist Lorin Silverman. Capriotti buys local whenever he can, down to P&H sodas (Brooklyn) and Josephine’s Feast! jams (Long Island and upstate). Retail outlets can also help a museum extend its grasp. Building constraints limit the size of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s (945 Madison Ave., 212.570.3614) physical store to a lobby corner that, despite a varied inventory, appears dominated by books, exhibit catalogs and prints. But its online store ( gives spacious play to all its merchandise: Jean-Michel Basquiat porcelain plates, Keith Haring scented candles, Tauba Auerbach playing cards and other ingenious pieces designed by, or in homage to, U.S. artists. And while every museum shop represents its parent’s mission, the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop (145 Sixth Ave., 212.759.0606) represents its parent—literally. Since Dahesh itself is currently an institution-without-walls, the year-old boutique’s sunny, exposed-brick-walled space is its primary public presence. Director of Communications & Marketing Paula Webster says the items (“some authentic, some fun”)— such as pillows adorned with tiny caftans; glittery, gauzy Egyptian scarves; and Turkish towels—“riff off the works in the collection” of 19th- and 20th-century academic art, with an emphasis on Orientalist genres. Museum emporia are a varied lot, their approaches varying as much as their inventory. But they all share a common mission: to support their parent institution, both financially and figuratively. As the Museum of Arts and Design’s Franci Sagar observes: “When people emerge inspired from an exhibit, they can find something in the store that continues the experience”—and says, in effect, “come back soon.” IN New YORK | august 2013 |

Eataly (eat, a gigantic food hall created by celebrity chef Mario Batali, offers Italian and Italian-style goodies—pear gelato, baby!—to consume on premises or to go. Afternoon tea tastes incredibly good on mismatched crockery at tiny Tea & Sympathy (; it’s run by an expat Brit, so you know the sandwiches and scones are authentic. Conversely, some of the best BBQ in town is at Daisy May’s (dai, dished up by a classically trained chef. What could be more New York than that?

Eat, Play, Love: Chocolatier Marie Belle (top right, does cocoa à la français—thick enough to eat with a spoon. I work off the calories with a few sets at the Vanderbilt Tennis Club (above,, hidden within Grand Central Terminal.

I have seen some of my favorite movies at the Angelika Film Center (above, angelikafilmcenter .com), whose showings lean toward indie and the avant-garde. They have a large lobby space for mingling, as well random concession items like quiche. My kind of thing.

If you’re looking to escape to another era, there are few better places than The American Museum of Natural History ( The Hall of Biodiversity (above) brings you way back—more than 3.5 billion years, that is.

I’m in the Business of stealing neighborhoods. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say adopting. Basically, I’m all over the place. I feel perfectly at home exploring the many gems tucked away on the numbered streets of the East Village. I’ll stop by Verameat ( to survey delicate Gothic-style jewelry (below), or meander over to Abraço Espresso (abraconyc .com), which, if they feel compelled to open shop that day, serves one of the best cups on the island. Of course, I eventually cross the East River to my apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn, enjoy the usual (gin gimlet) at my actual neighborhood cocktail bar Blueprint (blueprint and finish the night at one of the great dining spots along the tree-lined streets off Prospect Park—Dale Talde’s eponymous Asian restaurant, Talde (talde, is one I return to again and again. And, if I’m feeling nostalgic for one of my former Brooklyn ’hoods, I visit Café Moto ( near my old Bushwick stomping grounds, a moody bar and restaurant featuring nightly performances. It’s tiny, in a sketchy neighborhood and easy to miss, but totally worth it.

n o s r e i r F m a i l l i W

For any and every special occasion, whether I have friends visiting, or I need last-minute New Year’s Eve plans, I head to the beautiful West Village and choose from one of the numerous quaint, world-class restaurants— it’s like boutique eating. My favorite: Cafe Cluny (above,, which is charming, French and delicious.

The London NYC

The City Scoop Want to experience our city just like a true New Yorker? Michael Sinatra, concierge at The London NYC, dishes out his urban insight. First things first—get ready for a marathon of excitement: “There are so many things to see, eat and do that I often want to experience it all, and realistically know I can’t—but that doesn’t mean I don’t try.” However, one must be practical about the plan: “Try to keep things localized. If you’re seeing a show in Chelsea, don’t run up to the Upper East Side for dinner and then back down to a lounge on the Lower East Side. Stay put in a neighborhood—each has so much to discover.” You never know where you’ll get a golden tip: “Be open to suggestions. Seek them out even. Ask your concierge, sure, but maybe you’ll overhear of something fun from the person behind you in line at the drugstore or a fellow subway rider. Don’t be afraid to ask. New Yorkers are friendlier than our rap gives us credit for.” Looking for nostalgic boozing? “The Rum House, surprisingly tucked just outside Times Square, harkens back to the piano bars of Old New York with low lighting, lots of wood, great craft cocktails and live music most nights at 9:30 p.m.” Craving a hidden gem dining experience? Try TIPS FROM: Dell’anima: “Italian, casual, with low-key, local crowds.” Michael Sinatra, Concierge, Want to be serenaded? “54 Below is a swanky cabaret The London NYC, nightclub, boasting some of the biggest Broadway names in 151 W. 54th St., 866.690.2029 an intimate setting.” One more thing: “Oh yeah, and you’ll have to sleep sometime.”—William Frierson KEY TO SYMBOLS IN LISTINGS On the following pages, important features are indicated by these icons: $ inexpensive, $$ mod­erate, $$$ ex­pensive, $$$$ luxe; 2 handicap accessible; 0 gifts; 1 child friendly; 3 food/snacks; / drinks; 9 gay/lesbian patrons; 6 dress code; 5 music; . private rooms; 7 fireplace; 8 outdoor dining; 4 New York CityPASS.

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps

Furry Friends Bideawee, one of NYC’s— and the nation’s—first animal welfare/adoption agencies, opened in 1903. Among its initial services: placing and maintaining street troughs filled with fresh drinking water for carriage and wagon horses. Of course, it also nursed and found homes for strays and abandoned pets (like this collie, right, with uniformed friend, ca. 1915).

dining at the ‘21’ Club, be sure to take a peek at the restaurant’s wine cellar. The cellar was built in 1930, during Prohibition, as a place to keep the wine safe from federal raids. The restaurant still has some historic bottles, including

Bowery Fame

an 1898 Montrachet, a bottle of gin from 1919

The Bowery has so many historic buildings lining its 1.25 miles between Chatham and Cooper squares that it has just been listed on The National Register of Historic Places.

and private bottles that had been owned by such celebrities as Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Crawford.

Mayor’s Digs

Eye Candy One of NYC’s original luncheonettes, the Lexington Candy Shop on the Upper East Side, opened in 1925, still has its 1940 Hamilton Beach milk shake mixer and offers such retro treats as creamsicle freeze floats.

Jewish Masterpiece The Jewish Museum was housed in the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America until 1944, when the Warburg family donated the family mansion on Fifth Avenue for use as a museum.

Gracie Mansion has been known as the Mayor’s House since 1942, when Fiorello H. La Guardia moved in, but Mayor Bloomberg has opted not to reside there, preferring his Upper East Side town house instead. Nevertheless, he opened it as the “People’s House” in 2002, making it available for public tours.

“Everyone who walks the streets of New York with their eyes wide

open takes imaginary snapshots and carries albums full of them in their heads … New York makes poets of us all.” —Charles Simic, foreword to New York by Thomas Hoepker (teNeues, 2013) 92
