Jeanne-Claude & Christo

Downtown has lost another icon. Sadly artist Jeanne-Claude passed away yesterday.
I loved her wild red hair and her epic love story with Christo (read more about that at Wikipedia). I can only imagine how incredibly difficult it must be for Christo, to have lost the love of his life & his collaborator of 51 years.
You can see documentation of their work at: www.christojeanneclaude.net; and find The Los Angeles' times obituary written by Dennis McLellan by clicking here.
Zoe Strauss posted a beautiful photograph of Jeanne-Claude & Christo taken by Bryan Obrien on her blog: www.zoestrauss.blogspot.com.

Bakeri


Sweet, salty and mini pastries - yum! ©Nina Corvallo

If you find yourself in Williamsburg in the need for a little break, step into Nina Brondmo's Bakeri at 150 Wythe Avenue (@ N8). Serene atmosphere, delicious pastry, breads & hot beverages. It feels like my godmother's Marlis old kitchen and I could sit there for hours.
Bakeri is taking orders for Thanksgiving pies. You can order one by stopping in or by phone: 718.388.8037 --orders must be in by November 22.
