Subwayt Art, the book by photo journalists Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant who documented the rise of graffiti as a plague on the streets and in subways to an artform hanging in galleries today. They both will talk about the art and the anniversary of their book. Joining them will be Joseph Schloss, author of the book Foundation: B-boys, B-girls, and Hip Hop Culture in New York, with music by legendary DJ Luis “DJ Disco Wiz” Cedeño. RICE not surprisingly offers a pretty intense variety of rice, from brown to Bhutanese red. Most of the rice based dishes come in large and small sizes. Right below RICE is Low Bar, an extremely convenient place to grab a drink and catch some great DJs spin in a lounge environment. Right off the water, with a view of the South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge so close you can touch it, the only thing that could make this view better is ice cream. You’ll usually find a long line for Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, but the sweet flavors are worth it!
