“I love antiquarian books in the home; they’re so fun to browse and such a great conversation piece. For hard-to-find, inexpensive books, the following places are pure gold: Freebird Books & Goods in Brooklyn, Argosy in Midtown, and Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks in the West Village.”

“One of my most memorable experiences with art was walking among 650+ participants in the Deitch Art Parade in 2005, for the NYC-based fashion designer, Rebecca Turbow. We were all dressed as “Safe Girls” in her trademark teal and white color combo at the time.”
