Ilona


I was on the train yesterday reading over a woman's shoulder, when I saw a familiar face! Every week NY Magazine has a feature called the Look Book where they have a page size picture of some new yorker wearing a particularly interesting outfit.

Anyways! I saw my old upstairs neighbor, Ilona Smithkin!

When we used to live on W. 12th St., this tiny little lady lived right upstairs from Babe and me. She had lived in the building since the 50s, in this tiny little studio.

She was such a nice tiny neighbor! I'm so glad to see that she is still doing her thing, making art and teaching people all over the place.
