If you had 24-hours in NYC, where’s the first place you would go? I’d start at the Seagrams building staring at that Jeff Koons playdoh sculpture then I would walk over and say goodbye to FAO Swartz then I’d go to the Viand and have lunch at the bar . I would go buy a charger at the glass box Apple Store on Fifth )open 24h FYI) Then take the subway down to Blick art supplies on Bond street. From there walk over to Sant Ambroeus in Soho for drinks with friends and strangers. Then I would go over to Canal Street plastics and buy stuff for art projects ! Then I’d go make art somewhere for 12 other hours.
