New York City’s own piece of Eden resides at the edge of the East River, in where else, but Brooklyn. Opened in 1977 by the visionary restaurateur Michael (Buzzy) O’Keeffe aboard a barge at the foot of Fulton Street, the River Café survived Hurricane Sandy, in 2012, (thanks to a “museum-quality” restoration) and continues to serve food on par with the view. That might sound like faint praise, but wait until you see lower Manhattan at sunset and get back to me. (One Water St., Brooklyn, 718-522-5200.)
Signed fine art Giclee prints on museum-quality, one-quarter-cotton 280 gsm paper with archival inks are available in two sizes:
5 x 7 for $55 (email me about this size)
9 x 12 for $95
Editions are strictly limited to 365 copies, and each annotated print is a beautiful reminder that our days are numbered.
