Everywhere I look these days, Vienna, or at least Austria, seems to be popping up in articles showcasing what to see and where to be seen….First there was the New York Magazine article about “Skipping the Schnitzel”, then the New York Times Magazine article highlighting the Schnappsmakers of the Alps and return of small, artisan distilleries. They even went to far as to recommend this as a top travel destination of Spring 2010 – sign me up!
The latest ode comes again from the New York Times Magazine, this time in the Spring Design issue, featuring an interview with Renee Price, Director of the Neue Gallerie. Pretty cool gal. She gives her recomendations for visual treats around Vienna, as well as NYC…Here’s how to get the Neue Look….
And for those outside of Vienna, you can get a taste of Vienna’s classics at the new Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum’s exhibit dedicated to selections of glass and design from the great J&L Lobmeyr’s (more on one of my favorite locations in Vienna to come in a future post!)…
Enjoy the hipness of the Hapsburgs!
