Earlier today, I took the Staten Island Ferry and made photos of the sights during the short ride including the Statue of Liberty, lower Manhattan, and one of Olafur Eliasson's "Waterfalls" on Governors Island.
From the Staten island Ferry website:
The Staten Island Ferry provides 20 million people a year (60,000 passengers a day not including weekend days) with ferry service between St. George on Staten Island and Whitehall Street in lower Manhattan. 
The ferry is the only non-vehicular mode of transportation between Staten Island and Manhattan. NYC DOT operates and maintains the nine vessel fleet as well as the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island, Whitehall Ferry Terminal in Manhattan, the City Island and Hart Island Facilities, The Battery Maritime Building and all floating dock building equipment. 
The Staten Island Ferry is run by the City of New York for one pragmatic reason: To transport Staten Islanders to and from Manhattan. Yet, the 5 mile, 25 minute ride also provides a majestic view of New York Harbor and a no-hassle, even romantic, boat ride, for free! One guide book calls it "One of the world's greatest (and shortest) water voyages."
From the deck of the ferry you will have a perfect view of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You'll see the skyscrapers and bridges of Lower Manhattan receding as you pull away and coming into focus again as you return.
A typical weekday schedule involves the use of five boats to transport approximately 60,000 passengers daily (109 daily trips). During the day, between rush hours, boats are regularly fueled and maintenance work is performed. Terminals are cleaned around the clock and routine terminal maintenance is performed on the day shift. On weekends, three boats are used (75 trips each Saturday and 68 trips each Sunday). 
Over 35,000 trips are made annually.

FAUX NATURE: "The New York City Waterfalls" by Olafur Eliasson

These images were captured from the South Street Seaport last Thursday, June 26. A major network of temporary public art by internationally renowned artist OLAFUR ELIASSON called "THE NEW YORK CITY WATERFALLS" is on display at four waterfront locations in Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Governors Island. The display runs through October 13. 

Commissioned by the Public Art Fund, the project consists of four monumental, man-made waterfalls installed for three months at four sites along the shores of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island: one by the Brooklyn anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge, one between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn, one in Lower Manhattan at Pier 35, and one on the north shore of Governors Island. The 90 to 120-foot tall installations, which have been designed to protect water quality and aquatic life, will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, and will be lit after sunset, adding a striking element to New York City's iconic skyline. Conceived by Eliasson and commissioned by the Public Art Fund, The New York City Waterfalls will showcase New York City's natural environment alongside the City's industrial and commercial landscape. Sited in the historic New York Harbor, which has served as the gateway to America for nearly four centuries and a point of origin for the City's growth, the Waterfalls will introduce a breathtaking element into the heart of New York's waterfront.
"In developing The New York City Waterfalls, I have tried to work with today's complex notion of public spaces," said Eliasson. "The Waterfalls appear in the midst of the dense social, environmental, and political tissue that makes up the heart of New York City. They will give people the possibility to reconsider their relationships to the spectacular surroundings, and I hope to evoke experiences that are both individual and enhance a sense of collectivity."
Born in Copenhagen in 1967, Eliasson is considered one of his generation's most influential artists. Throughout his career, he has taken inspiration from natural elements and phenomena, such as light, wind, fog, and water, to create sculptures and installations that evoke sensory experiences. He is perhaps best known for The weather project (2003) at Tate Modern in London, a giant sun made of 200 yellow lamps, mirrors and mist that transformed the museum's massive Turbine Hall and drew over 2 million visitors during its five-month installation.
"One of Eliasson's great strengths as an artist is his ability to captivate viewers, which he will do by integrating the spectacular beauty of nature into the urban landscape on a dramatic scale," said Steiner, curator of The New York City Waterfalls.
Eliasson's work often involves industrial materials that, when brought together, create dramatic installations that are as beautiful as they are unexpected. The New York City Waterfalls will be constructed using building elements that are ubiquitous throughout New York: scaffolding is the backbone of the structures, and pumps will bring water from the East River to the top; the water then falls from heights of 90 to 120 feet back into the river. Fish and aquatic life are protected by filtering the water through intake pools suspended in the river. To build the Waterfalls, Public Art Fund has partnered with Tishman Construction Corporation and has engaged a team of design, engineering and construction professionals.
The New York City Waterfalls will be visible by land and boat, and because of their proximity to one another, viewers will be able to see multiple waterfalls from various vantage points in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Governors Island. Dedicated boat journeys to view the Waterfalls, organized by the Public Art Fund in partnership with Circle Line Downtown, will leave from Pier 16 in Manhattan and will provide up-close views of the installations. The Circle Line will provide free and discounted trips daily for the public. The free Governors Island Ferry, which will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the length of the project, and the Staten Island Ferry will also provide views of the waterfalls at Governors Island and between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn. Recommended viewing sites and bike routes along the waterfront will be made available on free maps provided on the Waterfalls website,, and distributed throughout the City. The New York City Waterfalls is an example of the Administration's continuing commitment to cultural life and support of public art as a way to highlight the vitality of the City. To maximize Waterfalls-based tourism, NYC & Company is designing a marketing plan to attract visitors from around the world to New York to view the project.
"Being home to extraordinary artists and visionary cultural organizations is central to New York City's identity," said Commissioner Levin. "Together, Olafur Eliasson and the Public Art Fund are helping us reconsider how we perceive familiar spaces, and the Waterfalls offers an opportunity for New Yorkers and visitors alike to explore anew the City's rich natural and cultural landscapes."

"A Chorus Line" War: NICK ADAMS vs MARIO LOPEZ

I captured this photo of A CHORUS LINE star NICK ADAMS on June 21st at the stagedoor of the Gerald Schenfeld Theatre. In the background is a big crowd waiting to take a glimpse of Adams' co-star, MARIO LOPEZ.
Nick Adams, born June 10, 1983, in Erie, Pennsylvania, is an American dancer, best known for his role as Larry in the Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line" opposite Mario Lopez. Adams has been onstage from the age of nine and began his professional career at sixteen. He earned a BFA in Musical Theatre with a minor in Dance at the prestigious Boston Conservatory of Music. Since his graduation in 2005, his career has taken off. Adams' first show after moving to New York City was the international tour of "Chicago" the musical. He then joined the Broadway company of Chicago later that year as the Mary Sunshine standby. Adams then moved on to become part of the original Broadway cast of "The Pirate Queen," where his voice can be heard on the cast recording with Sony Records. In 2008, Adams landed his big break when he starred as Larry, along side co-star Mario Lopez, in the hit Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line." The New York Post recently hailed Nick as having the best biceps on Broadway. HX magazine raves that Adams gives, "dance ten, looks ten" as Larry, and Perez Hilton describes him as, "hot and built." Adams' physique can be seen in upcoming advertisements for "2xist Underwear." His television appearances include: "Dancing With The Stars," "The View," "The Today Show," and "The Early Show." When Adams is not working, he enjoys spending time at the gym, taking class, dinning out, Central Park, and fundraising for Broadway Cares. He is represented by DGRW Talent INC, Choice Model Management, and CESD.
The war between A Chorus Line costars Mario Lopez and Nick Adams continues!
We all know that Lopez stopped Adams’ biceps from stealing the show, but apparently the former Saved By The Bell actor can’t control everything.
Underwear company 2(x)ist had been considering Lopez for an upcoming ad campaign, however the younger Adams landed the gig.
“Mario was originally No. 1 on our radar as we planned the campaign,” said an insider. “We were ready to call him with an offer, but then we saw Nick. He’s younger, sexy, more interesting. On top of that, his body was crazy. We set up a meeting, and when he walked in, that was it. We never even looked at anyone else after that.”
Jason Scarlatti, 2(x)ist’s creative director, gave final approval. He told us, “Nick’s very masculine, sexy, modern. It’s totally all about his body. Mario is a good-looking guy, but Nick had it. He’s up and coming, the new face of sexy. He’s original. He’s hot.”
So hot, in fact, that we featured him on Morning Goods just this week!
The aforementioned ad, meanwhile, will debut in Out’s August issue.
Mario Lopez and Nick Adams star together in A Chorus Line. Both wear tank tops in the production, kind of like you see above. You've probably noticed they both have very nice figures. Underwear company 2(x)ist noticed, too. In fact, they were so taken with Mario's lovely manly humps, they planned to use him in an ad campaign. The New York Post reports:
"Mario was originally No. 1 on our radar as we planned the campaign," said an insider. "We were ready to call him with an offer, but then we saw Nick. He's younger, sexy, more interesting. On top of that, his body was crazy. We set up a meeting, and when he walked in, that was it. We never even looked at anyone else after that."

Henri Bendel

This is HENRI BENDEL's artful window display at its Fifth Avenue store. Located at 712 Fifth Avenue (between 55th and 56th Streets), Henri Bendel is a small, chic establishment, resembling a grand townhouse more than a department store. The store has beautiful winding stairs. This is the place to come for the latest fashions from America's most desired designers. The first floor is a cosmetics shrine. Although all the biggest designers are represented here, one of the most desirable items is the store's trademark brown and white striped shopping bag (perfect for looking trendy while you stroll along Fifth Avenue).

This is a new sculpture by James Yamada entitled Our Starry Night, now on display at Doris C. Freedman Plaza at Fifth Avenue and 60th Street. 
Built from powder coated aluminum and punctuated with 1,900 colored LED lights, Our Starry Night is a 12-foot-tall sculpture that acts as an interactive passageway to Central Park. As visitors to the park walk through the sculpture at all hours of the day and night, it will illuminate in response to each person individually.
When visitors walk through the portal in the piece, they trigger a metal detector hidden inside the structure's casing. This activates the LED lights that perforate the exterior of the sculpture. Common everyday metal objects such as cell phones, keys, belts, jewelry, cameras, computers, and the like will trigger the lights; the luminosity and the light patterns seen in the piece will correspond to the quantity of metal detected. Our Starry Night is literally activated by the public, reinforcing the notion that art — and particularly public art — is dependent on the people around it.
The sculpture will only be illuminated while the participant is standing within the passageway, and therefore he or she will not be able to see the light patterns being created on the exterior surfaces. The lighting will instead be visible to passersby on the street corner and in the park, who will see the faade of the sculpture illuminate. Those passersby will be the receivers of the information and will be in a position to observe the correspondence between how much metal each participant is carrying and how that will be revealed on the surface of the sculpture.
In this work, Yamada calls our attention to the expanding, yet increasingly subtle presence of surveillance in the contemporary world. It also points towards such philosophical and political considerations as the loss of privacy in the name of greater safety and the use of personal information. By aesthetically and physically engaging viewers, Yamada questions these topics, and in so doing, involves us in the way information is revealed and used.
Yamada works in a variety of media and has previously created interactive works that have included aspects of nature, satellites, weather, and wildlife, among other themes. For example, his sculpture Under a Brilliant Sky (2004) which was exhibited at Art Basel, consists of a light-box sign displaying the title of the piece, which Yamada connected to a solar panel installed outdoors; the phrase then glowed and dimmed with the sun, in effect, creating a portrait of the sky.
About James Yamada
James Yamada was born in Bat Cave, North Carolina in 1967, and received his MFA in painting from Yale University in 1993. He has had recent exhibitions at Raucci/Santamaria Gallery, Naples; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York; Momenta Art, Brooklyn, New York; and Sculpture Center and P.S.1, both in Long Island City, New York. Yamada lives and works in Brooklyn.
Location and Directions
Our Starry Night will be on view at Doris C. Freedman Plaza, at 60th Street and Fifth Avenue, at the entrance to Central Park. Subways: N, R to Fifth Avenue; 4, 5, 6 to 59th St/Lexington Ave. The work is free to the public and is on view daily.

The Annual International Cultures Parade is the only Parade in New York City that showcases the multicultural heritage of over 100 communities: giant floats, folkloric dances and music, performers in native costumes, marching bands and contingents, and international pavilions. Last Saturday, thousands of performers participated in this annual salute to the multicultural nature of U.S.A. Unlike many parades, this is "A Trip around the World in One Day." Each cultural group performed along the Parade's route to the delight of the spectators. I took some photos of participants from the Vietnamese and Albanian American communities.

A free yoga-fest was held yesterday in the heart of Times Square at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue between 43rd and 44th Streets. I made these images of yoga enthusiasts who seemed to find tranquility and transcendence in the midst of the urban energy. These pictures were taken during the Bikram Yoga session taught by Santiago Solis. Bikram Yoga is a form of Hatha yoga conducted in a heated room which is why this class is being held at high noon!
 Bikram Yoga is a beginning yoga series for everyone! In the 90 minute class, one will work every muscle, tendon, ligament and joint in the entire body giving an incredible sense of well being.

Wikipedia defines Yoga as a group of ancient spiritual practices designed for the purpose of cultivating a steady mind. It originated in India possibly as early as 3300 BCE. A practitioner of Yoga is called a Yogi or Yogini. Yoga has been defined as "technologies or disciplines of asceticism and meditation which are thought to lead to spiritual experiences and a profound understanding or insight into the nature of existence." Outside India, yoga is mostly associated with the practice of asanas (postures) of Hatha Yoga or as a form of exercise. Many Hindu texts discuss aspects of yoga, including the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and the Shiva Samhita. Major branches of yoga include: Hatha Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Raja Yoga. Raja Yoga, established by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and known simply as yoga in the context of Hindu philosophy, is one of the six orthodox (āstika) schools of thought.
The Sanskrit term yoga has many meanings. It is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, "to control", "to yoke", or "to unite". Common meanings include "joining" or "uniting", and related ideas such as "union" and "conjunction". Another conceptual definition is that of "mode, manner, means" or "expedient, means in general".

360 DEGREES ROOM FOR ALL COLORS: Olafur Eliasson at the Museum of Modern Art

This is part of Danish-Icelandic artist OLAFUR ELIASSON's exhibition called TAKE YOUR TIME at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART (MOMA). Entitled "360 Degrees Room For All Colours," this installation consists of stainless steel, projection foil, fluorescent lights, wood and control unit. "Since the nineteenth century, painted panoramas have given veiwers a sense of what it feels like to stand in faraway landscapes or participate in historic events. Rather than illustrating a particular scene, Eliasson's installation immerses you in the color spectrum itself."
I captured these images of an unsuspecting man and woman totally immersed in the changing colors of the room. When they got tired of standing still, they turned around and saw me taking their photos. I showed them the pictures on my LCD screen. They then asked me to email their photos to them.
The exhibit runs through the end of June. MOMA is located at 11 West 53rd Street in Manhattan.

Charles Darwin's Garden: An Evolutionary Adventure

When I visited the New York Botanical Garden last Saturday for the Moore exhibit, I also got the chance to see "Darwin's Garden: An Evolutionary Adventure."
From the NYBG website:
Charles Darwin is best known for his theory of evolution and other natural history achievements, but little is known about his enduring and insightful work with plants and the important role they played in formulating his ideas. Yet from cradle to grave, botany played a pivotal role in Darwin's life. From counting peonies and playing under the apple trees in his father's garden as a boy to collecting "all the plants in flower" on his famous voyage to the Galápagos as a young man and testing the sex and sensitivity of plants at his home, Down House, in his later years, plants were a lifelong preoccupation for Darwin. 
Darwin's Garden: An Evolutionary Adventure explores the untold story of Darwin's botanical influences, his research, and his contribution to our understanding of plants, and ultimately, of life in general. The exhibition is featured in three Botanical Garden venues and includes an "evolutionary tour" of living plants that demonstrate key points on the Tree of Life, which links all living beings through a common ancestry. 
What Darwin Saw Out Back
IN 1860, while studying primroses in the garden of Down House, his home in Kent, England, Charles Darwin noticed something odd about their blooms.
While all the flowers had both male and female parts — anthers and pistils — in some the anthers were prominent and in others the pistils were longer. So he experimented in his home laboratory and greenhouses, cross-pollinating some plants with their anatomical opposites. The results were striking.
“He determined that if they cross-pollinate, they produce more seed and more vigorous seedlings,” said Margaret Falk, a horticulturalist and associate vice president at the New York Botanical Garden. The variation is evolution’s way of increasing cross-pollination, she said.
Now the Botanical Garden is replicating this work, and more of Darwin’s Down House experiments, in a stunning, multipart exhibition called “Darwin’s Garden: An Evolutionary Adventure.”
In all, the tour is 33 stops, spread throughout about half of the garden’s 250 acres. Visitors who enter the exhibition through the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will encounter a replica of a room in Darwin’s house, designed so they can look through the window, as he did, to a profusion of plants and bright flowers: hollyhocks, flax and of course primroses, what Todd Forrest, the garden’s vice president for horticulture, calls “a typical British garden.” On a table stands a tray holding quills, brushes, sealing wax and tweezers, the kinds of simple tools Darwin used to conduct his world-shaking research.
Darwin grew the flowers not just for their own sake, Mr. Forrest said, but as subjects for observation and experiment, work he carried out in his home laboratory and greenhouses, on workbenches like those in the exhibition. The work displayed on the benches is typical of studies Darwin made of pollination, how plants grow, even what happens when a carnivorous plant devours an insect. Orchids on display remind visitors of the varieties Darwin studied, and how his observations and dissections of their blooms led him to conclude that particular species were pollinated by particular species of insects, a conclusion later research confirmed.
The exhibition also includes a “tree of life” map that guides visitors to the garden’s plants and describes where they fit in the natural scheme of things; books, drawings and notes, some in Darwin’s own hand; and an interactive exhibit for children.
It anticipates two Darwin anniversaries next year — his 200th birthday and the 150th of his world-changing book, “The Origin of Species.”
Though most people associate that book and Darwin’s ideas generally with his voyage to the Galápagos and his study of finches there, his work with plants was far more central to his thinking, said David Kohn, a Darwin expert and science historian who is a curator of the exhibition.
Even in the Galapágos he focused on plants, said Dr. Kohn, who is general editor of the Darwin Digital Library of Evolution at the American Museum of Natural History. “He did not even label the finches,” he said. “He was fascinated by plants,” particularly the way their variation and sexual reproduction challenged the idea that species were stable, a key idea in botany at the time.
As Dr. Kohn writes in the exhibition catalogue, “plants were the one group of organisms that he studied with most consistency and depth over the course of a long scientific career” of collecting, observing, experimenting and theorizing. But Darwin studied more than flowers. He was intrigued by what Dr. Kohn calls the “behavior” of plants — how they move, respond to light, consume insects and otherwise act in the world.
So another exhibit in the Garden conservatory replicates Darwin’s studies of climbing plants. Mr. Forrest said Darwin studied plants whose roots move along walls, whose stems twine, whose tendrils curl around other plants and which climb as their leaves grow into tendrils. Visitors who stop to ponder this display will also be able to see, in the garden library, the wispy, primitive drawings Darwin made as he studied plant movement and insect eating. Dr. Kohn said the drawings, which remind him of time-lapse photography, are among his favorite items here even though, as he noted, “Darwin was a terrible drawer.”
In his orchard at Down House, Darwin established a “weed garden” by clearing a patch of sod and tracking the germination and growth of every seed that sprouted there. The Botanical Garden has done much the same thing with a small patch in the conservatory.

Remembering TIM RUSSERT

A flag flew at half-staff at Rockefeller Center yesterday in honor of TIM RUSSERT who passed away unexpectedly last Friday. Mr. Russert was the moderator of NBC's MEET THE PRESS and Washington Bureau Chief. Mr. Russert had led “Meet the Press,” the oldest continuous program on television, since 1991, and made the program the premier place for newsmakers and political candidates to make their case to the nation. I took this photo yesterday, Sunday near the NBC studio at Rockefeller Center. And if it's Sunday, it's "Meet the Press" with Tim Russert. Tim Russert's chair was empty on the program yesterday, when Tom Brokaw led a warm tribute to the beloved newsman.

2008 TONY AWARDS at Radio City Music Hall

Although I haven't seen many of the nominated Broadway shows, I attended the 62nd Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall. Hosted by Tony and Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, the show featured an opening number from "LION KING" which celebrates its 10th anniversary, as well as appearance by the original cast of RENT which closes in September (pictured above). One of the most memorable performances of the night was given by Patti Lupone who won Best Actress in a Musical for the revival of GYPSY. "IN THE HEIGHTS," a joyous celebration of Latino life in upper Manhattan, was named best musical while "AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY," Tracy Letts' tale of a dysfunctional Oklahoma family, took best play. But the lavish production of "SOUTH PACIFIC" picked up seven prizes (more than any other show), including musical revival.
