The decor of Dudley’s, a popular Australian-style restaurant in New York’s Lower East Side, is beautiful and makes clever, amusing use of some unusual spaces. Take it’s WC, for example. It’s almost as small as those you find on commercial aircraft — it’s a tight wedge of space tucked under
The 10th-floor view from our Hell’s Kitchen project office looking east toward Midtown Manhattan at golden hour. We love moments like this in NYC.

Here’s another one of those gargantuan wheat-pasted photos on the side of a building in SoHo, New York City. These massive street art pieces are by the artist JR and are part of his series of Native American faces for the Inside Out Project.
Amsterdam is a city with a lot of amazing spaces and a reputation for awesome, super-cool design. Awesome coffee, however, is not something Amsterdam is famous for. But that’s quickly changing. A handful of coffee roasters and cafes have recently set up shop in the city and are brewing some
More Amsterdam street art pix … Here a stencil painting on a wall in the city’s Nine Streets neighborhood, in the canal district. The guy in the image looks like Ghandi. The Dutch phrase is loosely translated as “Nothing beats Groningen,” which is a Dutch city far north of Amsterdam.

We met up with friends late Friday night for drinks at Cantine Parisienne, the new restaurant and bar at the Nolitan Hotel, near SoHo and the Lower East Side, in New York City. At night, the large dining space is beautifully lit up.
We’ve started to see the “JESS3” stickers pop-up a lot around downtown Manhattan this past week. This one is on a lamp post at the corner of Broome and Crosby streets, in SoHo.
The “Love Me” stickers and graffiti seems to be everywhere these days, including Amsterdam. We found Love Me’s “Love” paint-scrawled on the side of the flower market barges in the heart of the city’s southern canal district.
