"You ever been to Pleasure Island? I hear its a swell joint. No school, no cops, you can tear the place apart and nobody says a word. Plenty to eat, plenty to drink, and it's all free..."

We saw this in a handmade book at the information desk over at JG Platform.

Now Contemporary Art (175 NW 25 St) blew our minds with Sang Won Sung's "Hybrid" solo show. It features many hand built plastic creatures.

Harold Golen Gallery (2294 NW 2nd Ave) has great new paintings up by Jason Snyder from his "Dark and Curly" series. Think spooky, hot chicks, as seen through hair.
