On the Bowery

I have long adored the New Museum's building on the Bowery - a stack of misaligned boxes in a row of old brick buildings. I think it's such a great institution for the Lower East Side and an enriching addition to the neighborhood's architecture. So it was with great pleasure that I came across the new Sperone Westwater gallery just a block up from the New Museum - quite a contender for the strip! The building is designed by Foster + Partners and exudes sleekness and light; check out more here. I love it.
