How many dawns, chill from his rippling rest 
The seagull's wings shall dip and pivot him, 
Shedding white rings of tumult, building high 
Over the chained bay waters Liberty-- 

Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes 
As apparitional as sails that cross 
Some page of figures to be filed away; 
--Till elevators drop us from our day . . . 

I think of cinemas, panoramic sleights 
With multitudes bent toward some flashing scene 
Never disclosed, but hastened to again, 
Foretold to other eyes on the same screen; 

And Thee, across the harbor, silver-paced 
As though the sun took step of thee, yet left 
Some motion ever unspent in thy stride,-- 
Implicitly thy freedom staying thee! 

--from To Brooklyn Bridge, by Hart Crane

Ever since I moved to Brooklyn last year, I've been fascinated by the history and symbolism of the Brooklyn Bridge, represented in these vintage photos.  It's so poignant to see images of landmarks that have changed little surrounded by things, such as fashion of the passersby and the skyline, that have changed drastically over the years.

For this summer's Jazz Age Lawn Party, I was inspired by the vintage photographs of the Brooklyn Bridge, and had my friend shoot my 1920s-inspired outfit on the Promenade.

Will you be attending the Jazz Age Lawn Party on August 17 or 18?  I would love to see you there in all your 1920s finery!


  1. Replacing the wax ring is a lot less difficult and expensive than replacing the toilet, but if you have
    wanted a new commode, this is your chance. Flat paint is the best choice for hiding rough spots and surface
    imperfections, which makes it perfect for ceilings and walls.
    Simply feed the auger into the pipe until the snake meets
    the obstruction.
