NEW YORK’S OLD “TENDERLOIN” DISTRICT

New York City used to have a sleazy vice district known as the “Tenderloin,” and San Francisco still does. There are various explanations for this graphic name, which often refers to prostitution. But according to Untapped New York, NYC’s ”’Tenderloin’ developed its name from Police Captain Alexander Williams, who would frequently receive bribes in the form of steak while stationed in the neighborhood.” 

Located in Manhattan’s West 20s, the Tenderloin is also home to Tin Pan Alley, the deliciously grimy block on 28th street which housed the major music publishing companies of the early 20th Century.” The Tenderloin flaunted itself as “Satan’s Circus” back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but zoning changes to Sixth Avenue in the 1990s, when the city was busy cleaning up such areas, ended the old Tenderloin.

On October 19, 2014, Untapped Cities will offer a tour through the fascinating remains of The Tenderloin district and Tin Pan Alley with historian David Freeland.

Phantamasgoric Capitalism: Benjamin’s Arcades Today

In an overcrowded and claustrophobic city, social space becomes both a geographical and a psychological phenomenon. The latter dimension is perhaps more apparent in a city such as London, where traditionally, different classes, cultures, and ethnicities have tended to live cheek by jowl in many areas, in contrast to the ghettoisation of cities, e.g., in the USA. This heterogeneity is, however, very clearly the target of the next phase of capitalist valorisation in London.

New season, new window displays
It’s that time again! Sale is disappearing more and more from the stores, that means..time for the new collection of fall 2014! I just visited department store ‘de Bijenkorf’ in Amsterdam. They (often) have the best window displays. For people who haven’t heard of the Bijenkorf, you could compare it to Printemps Haussmann in Paris, Harrods in London, Selfridges or Bergdorf Goodman’s.
The theme of de Bijenkorf display is ‘Urban Playground’. They visual team makes full use of their window space, in depth and height. You see very divers settings and props, with the recurring bicycle. Whether it is in a wooden wheel, a sticker, a chain, old parts, or a complete bike. A clever way to create the dept is by using the bicycle sticker on the window and placing the wooden wheel in the space, making the bike complete. The mannequins are wearing a mix of brands in different styles with a great finishing touch.
I like the girl in the kids window, holding the spray can and spraying the paint on the window. The kids window displays have a real playfulness by the use of the sidewalk tile hopscotch and chalk, the skate ramp and the suggestion of movement / playing.
If your ever in Amsterdam, de Bijenkorf is definately worth a visit!
