Cubism:The Leonard A. Lauder Collection | The Metropolitan Museum of Art to February 16,2015

Cubism:The Leonard A. Lauder Collection | The Metropolitan Museum of Art: "Cubism, the most influential art movement of the early twentieth century, still resonates today. It destroyed traditional illusionism in painting and radically changed the way we see the world. The Leonard A. Lauder Collection, unsurpassed in its holdings of Cubist art, is now a promised gift to the Museum. On the occasion of this exhibition, the Collection is being shown in public for the first time—eighty-one paintings, collages, drawings, and sculpture by the four preeminent Cubist artists: Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963), Juan Gris (Spanish, 1887–1927), Fernand Léger (French, 1881–1955), and Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973)."

At Hasidic Gottlieb's Restaurant, Start With the Challah, End With Noodle Kugel | Village Voice:



"Gottlieb's has been in the same storefront since 1962, when it was opened by Zoltan Gottlieb, a Hungarian immigrant who came to this country after cooking in concentration camps in Germany. The menu has not changed much over the years, and the place specializes in Eastern European staples, like Hungarian goulash and stuffed cabbage, and pastrami and corned beef sandwiches.
