Nostalgic for Saturday adventures in NYC. On Brooklyn-based weekends, I would wander with the subway (in outfits as easy as this Loup dress, sweatshirt and skirt attached): aboard the F, en route to Coney Island, the railway cresting at Smith & 9th, as if only to glimpse the Kentile Floors sign standing sentinel above the Gowanus – maroon by day, fuchsia by night –standing for a bygone time when design audaciously asserted itself in its surrounds. Lamentably, the sign is being dismantled as we speak, letters intact, hopefully bound for reassembly elsewhere in Brooklyn. But until then, nostalgia.
