Congratulations to the Whitney Museum of American Art, for breaking ground this past Tuesday on the Gansevoort Street site of their new Museum, set to open in 2015. The Groundbreaking ceremony took place in a tent on the lot of which their new building will be built, and was attended by Mayor Bloomberg and the new building's architect Renzo Piano, along with many of the museums donors, including NYC socialites, celebrities, and art collectors. The ceremony concluded with a live art piece by the Elizabeth Streb dance company, which dumped dirt onto Elizabeth Streb, into which Mayor Bloomberg and museum's director dug shovels and posed for the classic groundbreaking photos. Check out more information on the new building and the ground breaking ceremony from The New York Observer here.
The documentary on shuttered Meatpacking restaurant and legend Florent, is now playing at Cinema Village on 12th Street. The movie features interviews with celebrities and regulars of the restaurant, which was open on Gansevoort Street for over 20 years. Check out NY Magazine's review here, and the film's website here for more info.
The Meatpacking District proved yet again to be the neighborhood to be in on Fashion's Night Out. Over 40 stores held events and there were huge outdoor events sponsored by Maybelline, America Express, the Gilt Groupe, Arizona Iced Tea, and more. Between all the great musical performances in the neighborhood (Robin Thicke, the BLK JKS, Kelly Rowland) and complimentary cocktails supplied by Moet Hennessy, the night was a hit. Can't wait till next year.
