Jo Chicago’s Jill Maremont Visits the Big Apple

I escaped to New York last weekend for some meetings.  It was such a delight to soak up some art and design during my down time!

I wanted to share some inspiration from my trip.  Highlights include:

-Shop visit to Modern Anthology in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood, helmed by designers Becca Citron and John Marsala who introduced this concept on HGTV’s Man Caves. This one-of-a-kind home store carries handsome design-wares for men.  In addition to offering a vast array of cool products, these architect/designers can create the perfect gentleman’s abode.

– All Saints storefront design was a collection of antique sewing machines.  This British clothing store is a must see!

-Private art collection featuring work by Damien Hirst and Marilyn Minter.  Jeanne Masel of Shift Gallery curated the collection.

-The Hi-Line was originally built in the 1930s as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project to remove trains from the west side’s streets.  No trains have run on these tracks since 1980 and now it has been transformed into an elevated park which connects the meat-packing district to Chelsea.  The urban garden-scape is one of NYC’s gems and the green space is peppered with art installations.

Hope you enjoy!
