I featured a piece not unlike this one not too long ago. In my post I asserted the woman in question was Veronica Lake. A number of readers disagreed with my assessment and in light of more, um, information I agree with them. My educated guess is this is Janet Leigh. Thoughts, anyone?

An Art Space Coming To Manhattan Avenue?

Many of you probably know that Head Hoods has taken residence in this building (which is located at the corner of Bayard Street). What you might not know is the space next door is slated to become a working artist’s space replete with shows and all that fun stuff. Per the very nice gentleman* who operates this space, Kent, this is going to happen. Soon. He told me to watch for the banner he is going to place next to the front door. I mostly assuredly will!

*He even asked if I would care to take home the above photograph of the birds as he “didn’t like it very much” and planned to rotate images anyway. Since I had several hours of walking ahead of me I declined. It was a very gracious offer nonetheless!
