A Work of Art

The impetus to go to Governors Island was to see the multitude of art installed on the abandoned island.  Sadly, I found the houses much more intriguing than the temporary, more  cerebral art.    Frozen in time, these kitchens of yore were all function, and no superfluous form.  Streamlined metal cabinets had no extra handles, only recessed edges to grab at.  Well thought out details were saved for the insides – broom hooks, a towel drying rack, a pull out shelf.  I came for the art, but I would stay for the kitchen.
