Where Else but NY?!

In the very same afternoon, I met both Richard Meier and the Squirrel Whisperer of Washington Square Park!

I was lucky enough to join a tour led by Meier himself of the warehouse space in Brooklyn where Richard Meier and Partners Architects maintains a museum of the models they’ve built over the years.  The space has recently undergone improvements and is being rededicated.  A small group of journalists (and myself, courtesy of John Hill) was invited for a preview in advance of the public opening.

I met the Squirrel Whisperer while she was tending her flocks from a bench in the park.  After chatting a while, she pulled this baby out of her purse to show me.  She found it abandoned and is nursing it back to health.  It will be awhile before it’s ready to return to the “wild”, though; it’s still terrified of the adult squirrels.  Like so many of us.
