Georgia O’Keeffe’s New York

These are some of Georgia O’Keeffe’s lesser-known works. I first encountered one of O’Keeffe’s urban landscapes at Vassar’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center (link to the painting here), and I didn’t even recognize it as an O’Keeffe until I read the wall label. These works are such a jarring variation from her usual natural subjects […]

We’ve Moved!

The bad news: I haven’t written in a week. The good news: My boyfriend and I moved into our new apartment! We are almost completely set up, and I hope to have some photos soon. Our new neighborhood is higher on the Upper East Side, much more residential than where we were before.  In the […]

Autumn in Central Park

One upon a time, my parents said to me, “CCBB. Do not ever go in Central Park. You will never come out.” I do not think they realize how gorgeous and clean the park has become since their 1970’s New York. These photos contain no drug dealers, no syringes, no graffiti, and no hulking presences […]
