Out with the Old, In with Alexis Bittar

Note the beautiful, veritably inlaid detail work on the majestic cast iron column to the left of the frame, and the graceful storefront window, both constructed no doubt later than the 1930s. Then consider the anorexic Alexis Bittar model, her tautly stretched skin aiding her rather Nazi like, comfortingly blank stare. Welcome to the new Bleecker Street. Bolshy Yarblockos it ain't pretty....sorry!

It was the column that drew me to your image in the first place. I have to agree with you on this one.

She needs to go to Yonah Schimmel for some kugel or knishes.

Yes, since when is anorexia fashionable? Oh, I guess since the early 90s?

Thanks for checking in!

Well, it is a pretty building. I am giving it the benefit of the doubt, until you show us when it is all finished! ;)
I wonder if anorexic models are cheaper than normal ones. Logically, they should be. They show less skin.
