My article for NearSay this week is a photo-guide about one of my favorite stores in Soho, The Evolution Store. The Evolution Store sells and displays natural history collectibles which are usually displayed in a museum context. To see skeletons, skulls, insects, butterflies, spider webs and all sorts of other things displayed in a store that you would only ever expect to see in a museum makes this a unique viewing and shopping experience.
Where else can you find a snake skeleton, meteorites, fossils, human skeletons, skulls, python vertebrae, taxidermy and edible bugs all under one roof? Yes, edible bugs and worm lollipops!
You can view the photo-guide (which includes photos of everything I mentioned above) by clicking through the photo above or by clicking this link:

Living Eighths of the Day: Manhattanite Felice Cohen makes the most of her $700/mo., 90sq. ft. Upper West Side microstudio.

Then again, there’s clearly so much more she could be doing. [gawkertv.]

I would be completely fine with this. I mean, having a kitchen would be nice, but I’ve never been the type who needs a lot of stuff. My wardrobe is relatively small, and my must-have electronics are pretty compact. For me, it’d be completely worth it to give up having a huge (not-so-eco-friendly) house in order to live in one of the most exciting places in the world. Life experiences are far more important than physical belongings.
