Design … Boxes of Juice and Water at Butcher’s Daughter … Nolita, New York 

For decades mass-market juices and milk were sold in paper-box cartons, but in recent years all sorts of other juices and beverages have been packaged in new, cleverly designed containers as in the example below of beautifully packaged juices and water (the first time we’ve ever seen water in a box carton) at the Butcher’s Daughter restaurant and cafe in New York’s Lower East Side.

Oodles of Noodles … Street Art, Lower East Side, New York City

We love the bold, illustrative quality and humor of this street art piece on a small shop roll-shutter on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side. A girl is up to her neck in a bowl of noodles surrounded by a trio of rabbits. What’s it all mean, you ask? As Chazz said in “Blades of Glory”: “Nobody knows what it means, but it’s provocative … it gets the people going!”

Street Art Memorial to Andy Warhol … New York

This mysterious memorial to the late artist Andy Warhol appeared last week on on facing walls along a stretch of Ludlow Street just south of Grand Street (a segment of the block also known unofficially as the “Ludlow Street Art Gallery”). The appearance of these posters is on the anniversary of Warhol’s death on February 22, 1987. Warhol was a seminal pop-art pioneer and lived and worked in New York City up until his passing.

“Mast” Graffiti Art Truck … Chinatown, New York

These ubiquitous delivery trucks in New York’s Chinatown are often usually covered in trashy graffiti. Occasionally, you see some eye-catching graffiti art pieces. And rarely you see a truck with a real work of art on it. This “Mast” street art work on a trucked parked on Broome Street is a masterpiece of the genre.

Street Art by “The London Police” … Lower East Side, New York City

The British street art group known as the London Police has been leaving its mark on urban landscapes around the world since the late ’90s when they visited Amsterdam and started painting their iconic characters on the walls of the Dutch city. They recently painted this mural in New York’s Lower East Side (near the intersection of 1st Ave and E. 1st St.) as part of the Centre-fuge Public Art Project, which works with local property developers and construction sites to devote temporary spaces to a rotating outdoor gallery of artists and their work.

Scenes from a Snow Day … New York City

As the pix below show, Tuesday was a “snow day” here in New York City due to the massive winter storm, dubbed Juno, that started hitting the city Monday afternoon.

But while the blizzard started out big, blustery and with very heavy snowfall Monday, the second wave of the storm that arrived later that night and on Tuesday morning was fairly mild and didn’t live up to the epic snowpocalypse (or snowmaggeddon, if you prefer) that was forecast for the city.

We were surprised how little snow had piled up in a bowl we had left outside on our balcony overnight. Still, NYC effectively shut down Tuesday and most of us spent most of the day at home with an official day off from the office, if not from the work itself (we still managed to hold two conference calls with our clients in Europe in morning).

With conditions milder than expected, we took some time out to wander around and go for a long walk in our downtown Manhattan neighborhood, enjoying the relative tranquility that comes with much of the city’s business being shut down on such an occasion. We made some stops along the way for Chinese steamed dumplings and a coffee, too.
