A Bit of Tibor for You

42ndStreetYear1.jpg

I came across this demo site that chronicles many of Kalman’s designs, projects and products, along with lots of trivia that’s probably only interesting to a geek like me. (He collected egg beaters, for instance. Fascinating, I know.)

Tibor Kalman.

The image above is of a billboard that was part of the 42nd St Art Project. I was working at the Paramount, when it was a an Ian Schrager concern. (Now, much to my surprise, it’s been sold and is slated to become a Hard Rock Hotel. Classy.)

Anyway, I digress: the hotel is in Times Square, so I walked by that billboard frequently when it was up and really loved its presence on what was otherwise a rather desolate strip. (Now it’s utterly Disneyfied, I’m not sure what’s worse.)
