Instagram Photo of The Week: Rosemary’s Baby Mural

Can those us familiar with the 1968 horror classic Rosemary’s Baby all agree that this scene of the eponymous character’s desperate call from a phone booth is one of the most nail-biting moments in the movie? And now . . .it’s a fantastically hyperrealistic mural in NYC’s East Village! I spotted this work of  by Street Artist @bkfoxx on New Year’s Day.

While it’s been hot and steamy for a few weeks already, the official first day of Summer, June 21st, has arrived at last. Despite the inherent stickiness of a NYC summer it is, hands down, my favorite season of the year. Summer ushers in a feeling of joy and freedom that cannot concisely be put into words, and I am so ready to launch into three months of crazy fun. Feel free to share the reasons why you love summer, in the comments!
