Times Square Show Revisited
The Hunter College Art Galleries present an in-depth look at the original Times Square Show, on view from September 14, with artists including Kiki Smith, Jenny Holzer and Tom Otterness, at Leubsdorf Gallery,
Lex and 68th.

Two good special events coming up: Brooklyn Book Festival, Sunday, September 23 and Maker Faire, September 29 and 30, at the NY Hall of Science.

A delight at the Met Museum in inverse proportion to the show's size, Gems of European Lace, ca. 1600–1920, showcasing for the first time examples from their extraordinary collection of lace.

And speaking of small, outsized delights… Slinkachu is the ingenious creator of street art around the world—a photographic collection of his works Global Model Village has just been published—we'll have more on an accompanying show in October at a later date; for now enjoy this short video overview.

You can save money on wine without shelling out for a whole case with a new service called Splitbin.

And oenophiles should mark next Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22 on their calendar for the Second Glass Wine Riot at the 69th Regiment Armory.
