One of my favorite sure signs of Spring in NYC is the presence, however fleeting, of Pink Trees! The tree pictured here is not even the most beautiful Pink Tree I have seen, but it is the one closest to my home. I am glad I snapped this photo of it before the rain we had the other night took all the pinkness off.
It’s always fun to pop into the Patricia Field boutique, even if it’s just to check out the many colorful displays and artwork in this bi-level space that includes a downstairs hair salon. I just had to capture an image of this “Tree” made up of strings of green lights draped over a tree-like frame. Innovative!
Patricia Field is located at 306 Bowery, between Bleecker and Houston, NYC.
This interesting sculpture is called Blossom and it was created by the artist Sanford Biggers in 1970. Blossom is on exhibit (apparently on its own as opposed to being part of a particular show) at the Brooklyn Museum.
One evening earlier this year, Geoffrey and I were walking home from an art opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery and I snapped a photo of this cool tree on 23rd Street just East of 10th Avenue. The lights are not really heart shaped, but it looks like they are. I like it.
