Incomparable Women of Style: Selections from the Rose Hartman Photography Archives, 1977-2011 will display more than 60 photographs, including rare vintage silver prints developed by Hartman in her home studio, as well as some of her most well-known work reproduced on a large scale. Hartman, who has been chronicling iconic moments in fashion, style, and culture for more than 30 years, captured New York City nightlife, fashion shows, parties, clubs, and openings. From Studio 54 to the Mudd Club to Chelsea art galleries today. Burger joint in the front, upscale lounge in the back, the menu at Pop Burger includes basics like 2 pop burgers for $5 for a quick fix or if your lounging, the likes of tuna tartar with soy truffle jus ($15). The Gaslight Lounge, a great hotspot bar in the meatpacking district, is dark and cozy while affordable for the area. If you don’t know Amy’s Bread, when you order a sandwich at a café or restaurant in the city, ask where they got the bread. There’s a good chance it’s from Amy’s because she’s one of the best bread makers in the city.
