"I’m Officially Obsessed with Observatory," Melissa Stern for Time Out New York, June 2010

...Observatory celebrates the eccentric and nurtures the curious; its oddities delight the eye as well as the mind.
Thanks to Melissa Stern for loving Observatory--the arts/event space I run with 6 other people in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York--enough to write a charming piece about it for this week's Time Out New York.

The piece is entitled "I’m Officially Obsessed with Observatory;" You can read the article--from which I drew the excerpt and image above--in its entirety by clicking here.

The above image is sourced my Secret Museum exhibition, which closes with a party this Sunday, June 6. More on that soon; in the meantime, you can visit the Secret Museum website by clicking here.

observatory sounds fantastic - i love that concept of 'rational amusement' and all the incredible ideas and societies that sprang from it (my current obsession is victorian-era archaeology) - the lectures sound great, too...i don't suppose you do podcasts...?
