“For a child is born to us, A son is given to us; And the government Is upon His shoulder; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” - Isaiah 9:6
Beginning the last week of September, a six-man team starts the process of adorning Rolf’s German Restaurant with 15,000 Christmas 🎄ornaments, 10,000 lights, and thousands of icicles ❄️. By the first of November, the process of turning this historic Murray Hill restaurant into a holiday wonderland is complete, attracting both locals and tourists who are eager to see the one-of-a-kind display of Victorian-style decorations.
We documented Rolf’s @rolfsny capturing everything from dolls found in New England antique shops to 19th century German ball ornaments worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. We also interviewed the owner Bob Maisano where he talks about the building’s past life as a speakeasy during Prohibition, German history in NYC, and what makes Rolf’s a unique holiday destination. To see more photos and read the interview please visit:
Exterior photo of Rolf's also appears in our book "New York Nights"
Adventure awaits ✨🌎

sometimes not sweating the small stuff is really fucking hard.
Het is nationale uitbrakzondag, na een heerlijk avondje Top2000 in good old Ukien.
Zoon en ik zaten met onze voetjes tegen de verwarming vanmiddag, toen ‘Since Yesterday’ van Strawberry Switchblade op Radio 2 voorbijwaaide.
Oh me, oh my, kortsluiting.
Zo’n eendagsvliegerige band, die ik alláng vergeten was. Zo ook dat ik dit nummer op single in bezit heb. En ik durf het gewoon op te biechten. Ik vermoed dat ik ‘m heb gekocht vanwege het hoesje: zwartwitfoto van twee punky polkadotladies met een overdosis oogpotlood en typografie in matzilveren kapitalen.
Aangezien er al heel lang een ongebruikt oogpotlood in mijn werkkot ligt, is het logisch deze weg te smeren in het postje van vandaag...
Well, what a day! ❤️after a long hiatus from Instagram, coming back to a feature on the #etsyuk account has made my day! I’ve never mentioned it here, but this paper was also featured in the #etsy Christmas lookbook this year! Makes all the hours spent stamping sheets of paper worthwhile ☺️! And now to go stamp some more... 😅 #etsyseller #christmas #christmaswrapping #christmaswrappingpaper

A very random lettering, it will be the cover for future Stories Highlights of my food experiments (I can’t be a serious food photographer because most of the time the things I bake look very ugly and also because I eat them in three seconds)
