Playtime

Last Wednesday I went up Park Avenue with Ada Louise Huxtable’s guide in hand. All this is pure Jacques Tati. You could think you are inside Playtime, the movie, if it  weren’t for the Tibet and Falun Gong protesters, the police barricades, the absence of pedestrian crossing lights.
When I grow up I want to have dinner at the Four Seasons, Phillip Johnson’s answer to Tati’s “boogie restaurant” in the Seagram Building.

More pics after the jump.

    Black girls are extremely exotic and, they are a very various
    type of women. There are so lots of stereotypes connected
    with black girls and, you will discover the ladies really amazing.
    Black women have a dark skin and, they are understood
    for their nature of being aggressive. It is really interesting exactly
    how black women have the tendency to stimulate curiosity and dispute.
    The women can be found in all parts of the world and, the most popular
    black girls are African Americans. African females are understood to be very calm and modest.
    It typically becomes extremely difficult
    to tell the women apart physically due to the fact that they have comparable functions.
    African American ladies are children of previous slaves who were generated from Africa,
    lots of years ago. They have a long history of struggle and last accomplishment.

    The black area in America has had to fight numerous battles
    just to be heard.
