Last Sunday on SMITH STREET the “Shop Art Gallery” held an event that focused on dogs… or the absence of. “Shop Art Gallery” handed out hundereds of leashes that were attatched to invisible dogs… The end result being a Sunday Smith Street being flooded with “Dog Walkers.” From the “We the Free” storefront we witnessed all sorts of crazy stunts which included people asking us if their “Dogs” were allowed in the store, two dog walkers having their dogs meet and people telling us their dogs names! Check out these photos we snapped of the “Shop Art Gallery’s” fiasco!

Does anyone remember PJ Harvey’s music video for her song “Man- Size” off of her 1993 album “Rid of Me?” I know it’s a bit of a throwback, but it’s so awesome that I had to post! I just can’t get enough of PJ.

The crop top she’s wearing reminds me of a few items we have at “We the Free, Brooklyn“:

The Dandy Lions who performed here at “We the Free” last month just had a show last night at “Sidewalk Cafe!” I was upset I couldn’t make it to the Pheonix/ Passion Pit concert at Central Park but after seeing these guys I don’t regret a thing. Check out a couple of pics I snapped from the show:

Yesterday’s New York Times had a brief article about an upcoming exhibit we are all excited to see! Clayton Patterson, a longtime resident of the Lower East Side is exhibiting his photographs of documentation of his neighborhood that he’s snapped in the past 5 years. The exhibit is called “Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured.” According to the NY Times Patterson considers his work historic documentation despite the fact that his photos are not more than 25 years old because of the rapid change in the neighborhood. It is no secret that the “Lower East Side,” while still vivacious and happening, is not the same as it was just a decade ago. Rents have been raised, graffiti has been removed, and new people have moved in. From what I imagine, the “Lower East Side” that Patterson has been able to capture is very similar to parts of Brooklyn right now, like Bushwick. I’ll be great to see the original neighborhood from Clayton Patterson’s photographs, how its evolved, and think of what may become of Brooklyn!

Check out the New York Times article here

Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured” is now on view at ALIFE  PRESENTS (a gallery for select artists and brands on Rivington). 

ALIFE PRESENTS is located on 158 Rivington Street, Lower East Side, New York
