Update: Joe O’Donoghue’s ‘Happenstansically Beautiful’

In October, I wrote about a chance meeting I had with Brooklyn- based artist named Joe O'Donoghue and his newly exhibited works of art.

Reaction to Four Umbrellas – Tupac Martir @NYFOL

Dumbo is small and steep and low. When it rains, it floods. The streets are unsteady, the buildings are old and crumbling, yet they are being reinforced at great expense by hopeful creatives.

The Chocolate Room is Heaven & You Should Go There

The Chocolate Room in Cobble Hill Brooklyn is the kind of cafe you can enter comfortably in a group of ten, as a couple, or solo. The menu is centered around chocolate, as one would expect, but more than just being made of chocolate, the recipes ate inspired by the ingredient.
