Art, Retrospective | Tracing the transformed facade of the Germania Bank Building - the Bowery Mansion that has strong ties to street art & the identity of the Lower East Side. The building has gained its first retail tenant in @totokaelo, part of a larger renovation project that had the building scrubbed of most of its iconic graffiti in the past year. The landmarked 1898 Renaissance Revival building, which has also served as the home & studio of photographer @jaymaisel, has accumulated layers of bold graffiti over the years. In the next chapter, only the moniker piece by the street artist NEKST will remain.

Every day, and in particular days like today, we carry Jen in our hearts and minds. Sharing our founder's poignant and eloquent words from this day one year ago. ____________________________________________________________ "It's 9/11 and we are in the throes of NYFW. At first, this is upsettingly incongruous - a stampede of the international fashion community on 'our' day of mourning. But then you remember that what happened that day in downtown Manhattan continues to transform the entire world. The above scene from Sex and the City, filmed at Sky Studios just before September 11, 2001, marked the first time digital image manipulation was used on the show. The Twin Towers, which loomed over Samantha and Richard during filming, were erased from the cityscape in post-production. This dark absence, while generated by a computer, reflects how many of us that lived through this tragedy will always see our sleek new skyline. But the embrace in the foreground evokes another sentiment that swept the city. 15 years ago, in order to cope, New Yorkers became more human with each other and more connected - a side of the story we should take care to remember and an atmosphere we should preserve." - @jenblumin
