pics : bank as cathedral
song : let's get loud by jennifer lopez
it's monday, so pump it up!
sometimes, rooting for the underdog pays off, so thank you new orleans saints and congratulations! we're not big football fans, so we put our remote control to the test by switching from the super bowl to the puppy bowl to emma and back. we didn't see all the commercials, but loved those with betty white for snickers and parisian love by google. and, how cute was drew brees with his son baylen?
i thought these photos of what was the gorgeous williamsburgh savings bank built in 1927 suited the saints. it's more like a cathedral than a bank, although some might view a bank as a cathedral - gordon gekko(?).
for the next few weeks the brooklyn flea is being held in this building and we went recently not so much for vintage shopping, but to see it.
in addition to the amazing marble and mosaics, i was so impressed by the intricate lighting, although it was quite dark inside. more about ambiance than task.
the big snow storm forecasted for nyc fizzled out this weekend, but not before dumping two feet of snow on southern new jersey, maryland and virginia - whoa. we were lucky this time, but there's another one on the horizon. enjoy your week!
