Piece of New York ニューヨークのかけら

Anyone who has been living in New York City for a long time must remember this paper coffee cup. We don't see it anymore these days and I truly miss this cup! To me this is so New York.
The man who designed this Greek classic, Leslie Buck, has died at the age 87. It made me very sad to hear this news... perhaps because it reminded me how things change in the world. Since we rarely see those Greek cups anymore I have bought a ceramic version mug and a leather pouch as well! (photo below.) The pouch is $35 at the MOMA shop and a portion profit goes to the homeless in New York. I buy this pouch whenever I can to support that.
