Tea with Gilbert & George

I walked in to Lehmann Maupin Gallery in Chelsea last Saturday and was pleasantly surprised. Two fine English gentlemen, Gilbert & George were hosting tea party and signing books. Event was very low key and had pleasant feel. Exclusive British tea was served in beautiful white china cups and poured from shiny silver teapots. Plenty tasty Scones with Jams and Marmalade. I was impressed how humble and well mannered Gilbert & George are. Very fine gentlemen, indeed.

End of Coney Island as we know it

I'm not very big fan of Coney Island's old and rusty rides, dive bars, junk food and dirty beach, but place has its own flavor. Neighborhood been in a constant state of flux, ups and downs. City and real estate developers has some nice plans for the area, to turn it into fashionable and civilized ocean front Condoland. Some lots already fenced up and demolition of what remains of Coney Island as we know it is on the way. New York is a city for the rich. Rich=Boring. I will be heading to Mexico for fun.
