I Spy: Mid-century Clock 
Now this is a library done in true New York fashion. Space-conscious and without too much fanfare, the desk is left uncluttered, featuring a modern lamp and a great mid-century clock (frankly, we’re fans of anything that even vaguely reminds us of Sputnik chandeliers). As it turns out, eBay has a ton of these vintage, starburst-style clocks available right now. Click here to check them out.

Bike Brigade
It’s the beginning of May and luckily for us, springtime is here (for New Yorkers, at least). With the nice weather comes a little less clothing, so go ahead and stash your winter layers for next year. But most importantly, it’s time to bring out the bikes. Today, walking in SoHo, we spotted this black city bike with fluorescent green accents. Vintage bikes don’t necessarily need to come with a hefty price tag, and after scouring eBay, we realized that the proof is certainly in the pudding.

A Perfect Space 
Purchased in 1968 for $68,000 by Donald Judd, this building (yes, the entire thing) was the lauded American abstract artist’s home and studio for over two decades, until passing away in 1994. To fund a $23 million overhaul of the space, preserving both the cast-iron exterior and an interior filled with countless personal effects, the Donald Judd Foundation sold off art from the collection to pay for restoration efforts. The result can be seen in person for those of you in New York City, with public tours starting in June. The building is a tribute to the artistic hotbed that SoHo once was, and the massive amount of space it had provided to foster it.

Throwback Thursday: The Bowery in New York

If you’ve been to New York and walked up and down the Bowery, you’ll notice the most energetic and bustling street in the big apple right now. The old dive bar, CBGB’s is now a John Varvatos menswear store, an old rickety hotel is now the famous Bowery Hotel, and The New Museum leans up against an old homeless shelter called Bowery Mission. Read on the gentrification here. To film purists everywhere, the classic On The Bowery has been re-released which acts as sort of a time capsule of the yesteryears. Only old school New Yorkers remember… [MORE] the large subway trains running through the middle of the street (seen above). The film is set in 1957, directed by Lionel Rogosin. It follows a new arrival on America’s #1 Skid Row, Ray Salyer (including some of today’s SoHo). It’s a non-scripted improv starring actual Bowery denizens, and won Best Documentary at the Venice Film Festival and Best Documentary Oscar nomination. You can purchase special edition DVDs of On The Bowery on eBay starting at $20. It’s a perfect gift for any true New Yorker.
