We stumbled upon this poster on a wall next door to the Japanese beef shop on Great Jones Street in NoHo near the Bowery.
These little wheat-pasted baby-faces have been appearing around downtown Manhattan in recent weeks, often strategically placed atop another piece of street art, as in the picture here of one on Spring Street in Nolita.
We did a little spring cleaning yesterday at our NYC HQ and discovered a box full old cellphones and gadgets. Pictured below are models of mobile devices spanning the past 12 years. The Razor was a great “feature phone” and a real leap in device design, form factor and aesthetics. The rather simple, little Sony-Ericsson “candy-bar” style phone pictured next to it was an un-sung hero and my favorite phone of the pre-smartphone or “feature phone” era. What’s not pictured here are a couple of other Blackberries, a couple more iPhones (including the iPhone 6 that we took these photos with) and 3 or 4 Japanese DoCoMo / Kyocera / Tukka candy-bar phones we’ve used in the past 20 years.
