As a fun and innovative way to celebrate the 2022 Holiday Season, the Museum of the City of New York invited top bakeries and amateur bakers from across the city to enter Gingerbread New York City: the Great Burrough Bake-Off – the museum’s first-ever holiday event aimed at honoring the communities in each of the five boroughs. Select bakers created their own unique gingerbread display to represent their respective neighborhoods, inspired by the theme Winter in New York. A group of prominent New York City-based bakers, curators, and restaurant owners judged the final designs.

I wish I could remember where I was when I took this photo of a little Pink Christmas Tree decorated with fluffy pom-poms instead of traditional glass balls. I suppose it’s meant to match the knitted hats you see on the display, you know,  for thematic cohesion, or something.

It’s puffy coat season, again — at least for those of us living in the northeast — and I recently purchased a light-weight, puffy parka for an upcoming trip to Alaska that I am very much looking forward to wearing. While wasting time in Saks Off 5th — which is Saks’ Outlet Store on 57th Street (where Daffy’s used to be!) I came across this rack of discounted, child’s-sized puffy coats in a very Hot Hot Pink color. Sometimes, the Pink Things just come right to me.

Instagram Photo of the Week: Gail and Jana Visit The Gates!

It seems like it’s been years (but probably just one) since NYC had a snowfall like this! I found this photo of me with my friend Jana while cleaning out my office a couple of years ago, and made this crappy scan, which I shared on Instagram this past week. The photo was taken in Central Park sometime during the February 2005 run of the public art installation The Gates by French land artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who have sadly now both passed on. Their art, however, lives forever.

Instagram Photo of The Week: NYC’s First Snow of 2022!

NYC got some “Starter Snow” on Friday, which had ended by the time I got out of bed, but still looked lovely in the park when I was out and about later in the morning. More of this, please!
