And finally: the tomatoes from Guggenheim
Oh, and there’s the guy who takes care of the tomatoes.
David Litvin, indoor crops specialist, looks after the plants for the exhibition “Campaign, the future. He moved to New York from Tel Aviv in February, with his wife, Stefanie, and their Dutch shepherd, Ester, with a plan to stay six months to harvest the Guggenheim tomatoes.
The museum has been closed since March 13, but Litvin still crosses Central Park every day around noon from his rental on the Upper West Side to take care of the fruit. “When you grow tomatoes on Fifth Avenue, you want to have the perfect tomatoes,” he said. “There is no room to spoil. If I have ugly plants, I will hear it from the neighbors. ”
The tomatoes, housed in what looks like a sidewalk radioactive shipping container, were on display as part of the exhibit for just three weeks before the city folded in on itself.
“This tomato growing module couldn’t just be turned off with the lights,” said Guggenheim curator Troy Conrad Therrien, who organized the exhibit with architect Rem Koolhaas and Samir Bantal from AMO, the industry research firm of Mr. Koolhaas. “We brought the exhibit to the street, and the street is still accessible.”
As part of the exhibition, these tomatoes – in particular, they are Brioso tomatoes – are expected to reflect the potential future of agriculture.
Tomatoes are used to advantage. Every Wednesday, a City Harvest pickup truck loads about 3,000 tomatoes that Mr. Litvin cut, still on the vine.
It’s Tuesday – stay grounded.
Metropolitan newspaper: At the restaurant
The night my husband and I fell in love, we dressed like animals for a themed evening at House of Yes. I was a fish and it was a cat.
None of us ever cared much about dancing in clubs, but we outlived all of our friends that night. Our first kiss was on the dance floor.
Then we went through a misty drizzle to the Williamsburg waterfront, where we watched the sunrise. The Manhattan skyline has never been so beautiful.
We headed to the Kellogg restaurant. After eating eggs, hash browns and waffles, we stood outside, eyes and lips locked, not wanting the night to end.
” Excuse me! Said a squeaky, nasal voice.
We turned to see two older women. One had an aluminum walker and an impatient scowl. We were blocking their access to the wheelchair ramp.
We apologized and walked away.
Moments later, the second woman returned outside.
“I’m so sorry about my friend,” she said with a thick Brooklyn accent. “I said to him,” Leave them alone, they are in love! “”
