Frank Gehry’s IAC Building

The IAC Building, which is the headquarters for InterAcive Corp, sits on the Hudson River-facing lot on Eleventh Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets. I sometimes pass it when I am gallery hopping and when it is lit up at night it is quite breathtaking to behold.

Besides the fact that the building itself is one of the most gorgeous examples of modern architecture in Manhattan, I am also quite charmed by the block-long series of video screens in the building’s lobby, which are visible from Eleventh Avenue. The visuals change all the time, but on a night last fall I snapped few photos of this pink and green set of abstract images.

When you get up close to the glass, you can see it is imbedded with little black dots, which I imagine help to shade the interior and add a dimension of privacy during the day.

I love this building.

Nasty Pig is a clothing store catering to (Gay) men with hot bodies. Its slogan is “Fun Clothing That Gets you Laid” (check out their Website for evidence) — and isn’t that how many adults aspire to dress? I recently passed by the Nasty Pig one Saturday evening on my way from an art opening to dine at Elmo, a new favorite eatery of mine, and was instantly charmed by this family of what I am calling “Leather Pigs” cavorting in the store’s display window.
