The beauty of living at the crossroads of Manhattan’s Chelsea and Flatiron neighborhoods is the abundance of art galleries that offer unique exhibits by emerging and seasoned artists. Citizen is your ticket to get a closer look at the thought provoking and meaningful displays around the area. A few upcoming shows that we think sound fascinating:
“Hanging by A Thread” is the latest exhibit by Pinaree Sanpitak at the Tyler Rollins Fine Art gallery. Sanpitak is a Thai artist, a powerful advocate of the exploration of the women’s experience in Southeast Asia. Her art tends to highlight the most basic forms of the female body. “Hanging by a Thread” is a reaction to the recent flooding in Bangkok, and the traditional Thai printed cotton, “Paa-Lai” used in the exhibit is the fabric used for the relief bags. Sanpitak created woven hammocks from the material, suspended in air by a thin thread. The cocoons represent nurturing, refuge and contemplation, a safe haven from precarious times. The exhibit runs until June 1.
At the Elizabeth Harris Gallery, Steve Currie’s “From an Old Drawing” is an innovative concept. Currie uses sketch lines from his old drawings to create sculptures made from wire, wood, and plastic. The exhibit takes old ideas and transforms them into something that is new, while embracing the essence of the past. Currie hopes this will show viewers that sometimes you must look back in order to move forward. The exhibit runs until June 2.

A view of the living room in our one bedroom model apartment
Our fabulous 990 square foot one bedroom plus study at Citizen is looking even better this week. It’s been fully furnished and really shows off the spacious dimensions and great flexibility of the living and dining areas, as well as the light-filled bedroom, separate study, and one and a half bathrooms. The private outdoor space is almost complete as well, and we can just picture the inviting table and chairs we’ll put out there soon, just in time for the good weather. Come by our sales office at Citizen, open seven days a week by appointment, to take a look at our newest one bedroom model apartment!

Madison Square Eats - Just down the street from Citizen
For the past few days, we at Citizen have been taking full advantage of the return of one of the best food events in the city – Madison Square Eats. Just down the street from Citizen, the triangle of land between 5th Avenue, Broadway and 23rd Street called Worth Square has been transformed into an outdoor food extravaganza replete with tables and umbrellas decorated with iconic Marimekko prints (their new store is right across the street). Some of the city’s most raved about eateries are here – Roberta’s Pizza, Asiadog, Calexico, Hong Kong Street Cart, Mile End, and Red Hook Lobster Pound to name a few. With plenty of seating, it’s hard to resist going for lunch, dinner or a quick snack and it is just one of the many reasons we love the Madison Square neighborhood!
Madison Square Eats is conveniently (too conveniently!) open every day from 11 am – 9 pm through June 1st. 23rd Street between 5th Avenue and Broadway.
