What Sound Looks Like


25th Street between 6th & 7th Avenues, Manhattan

Do you recognize the reference in this window display? I REA Approve this Chelsea storefront by Manex (a mannequin manufacturer) because it recreates Maxell’s iconic “Blown Away Guy” ad.

Signs Of Spring


Paper Presentation, 18 Street between 5th & 6th Avenues

This artwork is currently on display in the stationary store’s window. It’s a rather complex-looking piece simply made from paper and staples. I REA Approve it because it’s the perfect welcome sign for spring, only a week away.

Cupcake City

19 Street and Sixth Avenue, Chelsea

I REA Approve this window display in front of Manhattan’s Bed Bath & Beyond – the one-stop-shop for all savvy New Yorkers. The colorful structure is clever, fun and eye-catching in a neighborhood whose tenants compete for attention. It also looks good enough to eat.
