It’s Summertime ~ when nothing is better than life outdoors with the annual Summer Streets and Charlie Parker Jazz Festival. This year, adding to our list will be a 100-site installation by Public Art Fund, 7 new sculptures on the Park Avenue Mall, and The Harlem Art Collective’s Summer installation on The Guerrilla Gallery Wall, addressing social and political issues in the news and close to our hearts. Be sure to check ‘Still on View‘ for the many fabulous installations closing soon.
So, what every happened to the old Germania Bank Building that Jay Maisel bought in 1966 for $102,000 and sold to the developer Aby Rosen for $55 million in 2015?
While we have been looking forward to the Germania Bank’s future, let’s take a moment to look back, in the new film Jay Myself, at the Film Forum in the summer of 2019. Directed by Stephen Wilkes, Jay Myselfchronicles Jay Maisel’s monumental move out of his 72-room home at 190 Bowery. If you missed it, the DVD of this documentary can be found for sale on Amazon.
