Then the economy became increasingly industrialized, theHudson River Railroad was built, and so the area became a scantily populated industrial district.

It been quite a wait, but Snyder is finally making his bid for the MVP role in the bumper crop of American menswear designers who emerged in New York over the past decade. The Todd Snyder NYC Flagship store finally opened on the northern edge of Madison Square Park last week featuring the full breadth of the designer offerings plus a host of collaborations that make the new store seem like a multi brand affair. While a few features like the in store barber shop and caf are still awaiting finishing touches, there is still plenty for Snyder fans to appreciate including a full Moscot optical counter and an impressive shoe assortment featuring exclusive styles from beloved brands like Crockett Jones, Alden, Grenson and Tricker to name a few..
The fourth design I approached differently, beginning by thinking about what I want my building to say. I decided that I have three key issues that I want to tackle with my design: Sustainability, Locality and Community.

But BBAJ’s genius lay in the way it equated the mass appeal of bratty, insolent, obdurate Jackson with, well, that of bratty, insolent, obdurate Bush. Now, as a parallel to the Obama presidency, it sends a disappointing mixed message disappointing especially because its original message was so forceful and dead on (AJ would have wanted it that way!), while the Botox applied to this version seems more like a hedged bet. Maybe if we ended up with a McCain/Palin regime and the show stuck to its roots, it would have blown up Broadway.
