Real estate funds target mom-and-pop investors, behind the Playboy Club’s downfall

More real estate funds are targeting individual investors. Jamestown, the company that sold Chelsea Market to Google last year, is marketing a $50 million fund aimed at mom-and-pop investors in the U.S. with a minimum investment of $2,500. Blackstone and Starwood have also targeted individuals in the past, as low interest rates have pushed more investors go after real-estate investments for higher yields. “If you enjoy places like this…wouldn’t you like to put your money into buildings like these?” Jamestown president Michael Phillips said.

ZAZ10TS Presents 10 Times Square: New York Fashion Rediscovered 1982-1997

An extraordinary collection of 1980s-1990s fashion slides found on a New York City sidewalk makes its way back to the Fashion District in a new photographic exhibition: “10 Times Square: New York Fashion Rediscovered 1982-1997.”

Presented in the lobby gallery at 10 Times Square, also known as 1441 Broadway, former home to some of the most prominent images of top fashion designers and supermodels from the 1980s and 1990s. The free public exhibition opened on September 5 to coincide with New York Fashion Week and will run through January 20, 2020.

The Mystery Treasure Trove of 1980s Fashion

Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan and Cindy Crawford are just some of the designers and models captured on thousands of slides tossed in the garbage a decade ago.
On a late-summer afternoon 11 years ago, Gaetane Bertol was hurrying past the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue in Manhattan, when she noticed a large stack of yellowing boxes on the sidewalk. At the top of the pile was an open binder containing color slides.

At the time, Ms. Bertol, an artist and set designer, was creating small collages from colorful bits clipped from magazines, so the slides caught her eye. When she held one of the sleeves up to the sun, she could see tall women parading down a runway in vivid clothes.

A Broadway Set Designer’s Chance Find Becomes New York Fashion Week Exhibit

Over a decade ago, Gaetane Bertol stumbled over a box of long-lost historic fashion slides from the 1980s and ’90s on a New York sidewalk that are set to go on display Sept. 5 in Times Square.

While major labels like Calvin Klein and Donna Karan still operate out of New York’s Garment District, it’s not the same bustling epicenter of America’s clothing design and manufacturing industry that it was in years prior. Just in time for New York Fashion Week, the creators of a new exhibition in the area hope to spark a little nostalgia for a golden era before smartphones and outsourcing, when a crew of iconic supermodels ruled the runway.

Curated by Ya’ara Keydar for the ZAZ10TS gallery, the exhibit “10 Times Square: New York Fashion Rediscovered 1982-1997” features runway images of renowned fashion designers including Donna Karan, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, Perry Ellis and Alber Elbaz and models Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista Kate Moss and Christy Turlington.

Iconic Times Square Building Transforms Lobby into Integrative Art, Culture Space

At 10 Times Square (also known as 1441 Broadway), stands a 34-story, 575,000-square-foot commercial office building situated on the southwest corner of Broadway and West 41st Street. The building’s 1930’s Art Deco lobby is continuously transformed into a modern and classic gallery art and culture space to the delight and enjoyment of its many tenants, visitors and those who pass by.

Originally designed by Backman & Kahn and completed in 1930, the building was originally called the “Bricken Textile Building.”

During the garment center era and through the 1980s when New York City was a fashion center, the building served as the Liz Claiborne’s NY headquarters for many years and was home to many other well-known fashion designers. It is owned and managed by LH Charney Associates, which also owns 1410 Broadway.

“The purpose of presenting ongoing art, music and video exhibits in the building’s lobby is to provide tenants with a cultural experience to share and form community around as they enter their respective workspaces,” said Tzili Charney, who conceived the ZAZ10TS gallery space and curates the art exhibitions at 10 Times Square. “Our goal is to provide our tenants with new experiences to draw on throughout the work week.”
