Pink Thing of The Day: Man Balancing a Large Stuffed Pink Pig on His Head

I was riding the M3 Bus uptown on Bowery coming home from Chinatown and I noticed a man, walking with his girlfriend, who was also carrying a very large, stuffed Pink Pig.

When the bus stopped at a light around 5th Street, the man suddenly put the pig on his head, balanced it perfectly, and his girlfriend took a photo. I also took a photo, or three. Because, NYC.

The light changed and the bus started moving again. The couple and their large stuffed pig continued on their way, as did I.

The late summer edition of the Affordable Art Fair is back at the Metropolitan Pavilion through Sunday, September 13th! We hit the Preview Night on Wednesday and were thrilled with the variety of artworks for sale and the friendliness of the gallery representatives on hand to help move each piece along to an art-loving home.

We took a ton of photos, as usual, but managed to edit this post down to 10 (or 11, actually) of our favorite Pink Things we saw at the show. Enjoy!

Pink Thing of The Day: Body Fantasies Spray Fragrance

The packaging design of this fragrant body spray is almost too pink to resist, especially when you add the fluorescent, multi-colored lip prints. Even the fragrance name, “Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy” sounds almost edible. And I guess that is what good advertising is all about: compelling you to purchase a product based solely on how it looks on the shelf. Oh, the Pinkness.

Pink Thing of The Day: Taxidermy Rats Driving a Hot Pink Sports Car!

People say to me all the time, “Gail, where do you find the amazing Pink Things you put on your blog?” And I say to them: “I find the everywhere!” This pair of Taxidermy White Rats driving a Hot Pink Sports Car (yes, I just typed that) was spotted in the gift shop at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn. I did not ask if it was actually for sale.

It is obvious that they are about to drive off the edge of a “cliff,” all Thelma and Louise-style.

But look how much fun they’re having! Wee!

Pink Thing of The Day: Conversation By B. Morgan

This ‘Conversational’ group of colorful public seating is located in the rear of the plaza at 77 Water Street, just off Water  and Old Slip in NYC’s Financial District.


When I took these photos, a lot of people, appropriately, appeared to be using this area to sit and talk on their phones. This space is also adjacent to where a bunch of food trucks park, so it’s a convenient place to sit and eat and people watch while the weather is still decent.


Those big pink partitions also make it an ideal location to hide from your co-workers while you are on a smoking break.


Pink Thing of The Day: John McCracken, Violet Block in Two Parts

OK, so this is technically more like a “Pink-ish Thing,” since it’s called Violet Block in Two Parts. But, pinkish is close enough for me! This sculpture by the late great John McCracken is currently on display in the new home of the Whitney Museum, which I’ve managed to visit twice already since it opened in late April of this year.

The grid-like pattern you see on the sculpture’s surface in this photo is a reflection of the gallery’s ceiling.
