I'm off for a ladies' weekend in New York City with Mabel and my Mama! The first non-work trip I've taken to Manhattan in over eight years, and the first time my mother has ever been there. We are very excited. So leaving you on Art Friday with Alex Teuscher's moody photos of the Big Apple--which lend a sort of noir-ish charm even to the most touristy places--seems especially apt. Have a lovely weekend, wherever you go!
