all the buildings in new york

James Gulliver Hancock is attempting to draw all the buildings in New York. His journey can be followed on his blog – where you can also purchase (and commission) these illustrations. I think they are awesome.

illustrated cities

You all know how much I love maps and city inspired illustrations (see here, here, and here)… These wonderful prints are by Bianca Gomez and I adore them.

home tour

I love looking through pictures of the interiors of homes (this shouldn’t come as a surprise…) — especially those located in New York City – and ESPECIALLY those in New York City that are absolutely and insanely gorgeous. Like this one, that belongs to Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo of ABCD Design and her husband. Stunning!

new york in legos

Christoph Niemann is an amazing illustrator whose works have appeared on the covers of The New Yorker, Wired, The New York Times Magazine and American Illustration. He is the force behind Abstract City – a New York Times blog (and a personal favorite) so I was delighted to come across his new book I LEGO N.Y. a playful homage to New York City constructed entirely out of LEGOs.

neighborhood love: DUMBO

I had a meeting in DUMBO yesterday (for those of you who don’t know, DUMBO stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) and even though I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the breathtaking views of Manhattan or walk the cobble stone streets for long enough it was lovely to stop by. I love the bridges, old train tracks, eclectic boutiques, restaurants and galleries this neighborhood offers. Always a pleasure DUMBO, always a pleasure.

maSh hot pants

I recently came across maSh a collection of leggings designed and and constructed in new york city. I love what they have to say about their brand: “The maSh aesthetic is culturally ambiguous; inspired by the music of MIA and Gang Gang Dance, salsa clubs in Harlem, Swedish buns, Russian cigarettes, visiting bands from Mexico city, the French air, circus parades along the Mississippi River, disco punk shows in Brooklyn backyards, installation art from Iceland, and modern German paintings.”

There are always five styles for sale. Bold, colorful and fantastic fabrics sewn until they run out and new and even more fantastic fabrics take the place.
