Christine and I first met almost 15 years ago when we both first moved to Williamsburg. Christine owned the first boutique on Bedford Avenue, Max and Roebling, and I worked in the L cafe next door. We became friends immediatly and shared an apartment down the street.
Today we had some time to walk around the area. There are always new places to discover but today we were looking for the old places we knew. We had lunch at Diner and has always had one of my favorite restaurant interiors ever. Grant Cornett who regulary photographs for each issue of Small also works on the Diner Journal a beautiful independent journal published by the owners. After lunch we had time to drop by and visit an old friend Stella who has opened up a craft shop and class space on the Southside called SpaceCraft. It is a great spot for kids to make and create. Further up Bedford Avenue we went in to Spoonbill and Sugartown our all time favorite bookshop for art and design inspiration. Finally we walked past the shop and cafe we spent so many hours in when we first met - it looked very different, but then I guess so did we!
