Interesting piece of NYC history you may not know... This is "The Hess Triangle", the smallest plot of private property in nyc. The plaque is the result of a dispute between the city government and the estate of David Hess, a landlord from Philadelphia.
In the early 1910s, the city claimed eminent domain to expropriate and demolish 253 buildings in the area in order to widen Seventh Avenue and expand the IRT subway line.
In 1928, Hess's heirs discovered that, when the city seized Mr Hess building the survey had missed this small corner of Plot 55 and they set up a notice of possession.
The city asked the family to donate the diminutive property to the public, but they refused and installed the present, defiant mosaic on July 27, 1922. #thehesstriangle#quirkynyc #westvillage#nyc#autumninnyc
As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holdings of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's flagship exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
The 2019 Biennial is open until Oct 27, 2019! Featuring seventy-five artists and collectives working in painting, sculpture, installation, film and video, photography, performance, and sound, the 2019 Biennial takes the pulse of the contemporary artistic moment. You won’t want to miss this!

Dropped by at this new dessert bar in West Village last night after dinner. @marbledessertbar serves a prix fixe dessert course in a fine dining setting and is run by ChikaLicious alums Maya Sittisuntorn and Eugenio Mauro Pompili. Changing the venue post dinner for a dessert fine dining experience is a great idea!!
Named for the same man for whom Christopher Street is named, Charles Christopher Amos, Charles Lane is a narrow street with no sidewalks and unique brick paving (installed in 1893). The pavers, seen prominently in the photograph, are laid out horizontally with 3 rows of vertically paved bricks in the middle. This configuration, which created a sort of gutter in the middle, was likely constructed to assist in the drainage of water from the street into the gutter on nearby West Street.⠀
Berenice Abbott, the photographer of the 1938 image, called Charles Lane the only genuine back alley she ever found in New York City. Like many of the small hidden Manhattan alleys, Charles Lane saw debris, garbage, and likely its share of illicit activity in the 20th century. After a successful battle in the late 1960s against a high-rise housing proposal, Charles Lane is today a quiet, quaint street, lined with brick buildings, some of which were originally stables. ⠀
