GloboMaestro Goes to Barbara Feinman Millinery

Exclusive GloboMaestro Video: In a world of mass produced goods, Barbara Feinman's hats, handmade to order in her tiny shop in the heart of New York's East Village, are truly special. Made with limited editions fabrics and vintage details, Barbara and her small team of designers treat hat making like sculpture, using techniques that have barely changed since the 19th century.

Just a handful of these artisans are left in New York, and Barbara's hats are in high demand by New Yorkers in the know, including celebrities like Beyonce, Chloe Sevigny and Blake Lively.

In this new GloboMaestro video, a downtown insider from The Bowery Hotel explores this East Village storefront where one of fashion's niche arts is still thriving.

Guess Where? Roadside Attraction

201103-b-guesswhere-101jpg

Living in New York, I never get to drive. Because of that I love a good road trip, especially for the amusing roadside attractions you happen upon along the way. Here's a favorite spot I spotted on my way to Memphis a few years back. Can you guess where it is? 

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 2/27/12: Dinosaur Land is located at the intersection of interstates 277, 522 and 340 in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. It's hard to miss.
