The 55th Annual Winter Antiques Show

It’s been a very busy and exciting time for Antique Shows.  Last Thursday, I went to the opening of the 55th Annual Winter Antiques Show held at the Park Avenue Armory at Park Avenue and 67th Street in New York City.  Running through February 2, this most prestigious show is visited by museums, dealers, design professionals, and private collectors who are interested in seeing and perhaps, buying exceptional pieces shown by 75 renowned exhibitors.

The Winter Antiques Show is a benefit for the East Side House in the South Bronx of New York City.  The East Side House is a wonderful community resource which combats poverty and provides necessary tools for individuals to pursue their educational goals, in hopes of improving economic status, leading to more fulfilling lives – a most noble and worthy cause.  Come see my photos taken with my Canon G10.

Our own mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg - several city officials attended this festive gathering. The mayor is an old friend and I am a great admirer of his work.
