MANHATTAN —  Nothing says New York like a Jell-O-like model of Manhattan’s famous skyline.

Liz Hickok’s “Jelly NYC,” a 3-D replica of the Financial District and Lady Liberty, is just one of a series of unconventional cartographies on display at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery’s fall exhibit, “You Are Here: Mapping the Psychogeography of New York City.”

The collection, which also includes a chart of Craig’s List “missed connections” sites, a map of Manhattan bodegas, and an active bee honeycomb shaped in the form of the five boroughs, was brought together by Seattle-based guest curator Katharine Harmon.

J.D. Salinger probably wouldn’t want you to read this.

The devoutly private author of The Catcher in the Rye, who denounced publishing, refused interviews and declined Hollywood’s advances to turn his seminal novel of alienation, hunting caps and phonies into a movie, died Wednesday at his longtime New Hampshire hideaway, it was revealed today.

Featuring Kathy Griffin, Christopher Meloni, Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T, Sutton Foster, Bryce Ryness

First of all, WOW!  On Wednesday, January 6, 2009,  I was able to meet one of my favorite comediennes and all around inspirations!  I had the fortune of seeing her film a guest appearance for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.  My amazing friend Elisa is a trooper and stayed with me for about nine hours on the set!  Since I am at a loss here is Elisa wrote at her blog (AKA CHECK OUT HER AWESOME BLOG!):
