Travelogue

art takes you to some funny places

This morning I scouted sites for my project for Art in Odd Places, a visual and performance art festival along 14th Street in NYC in October.

Near the West Side Highway, I spied a potential site, peculiar for its lack of signage. I went in to ask for a business card. The top of the card read,

“Your rendezvous for romance.”

It’s an hourly motel. Odd places, indeed.

So bad, it’s good:

I have seen this CVS in a former bank, at 8th Ave and West 14th Street, before, but its architectural dissonance is still pretty cool.

I have seen this CVS in a former bank, at 8th Ave and West 14th Street, before, but its architectural dissonance is still worth savoring. Are those columns Doric or Ionic? Trick question. Corinthian!
