This month, marks my 24th anniversary living in New York City. People often ask me, what is it that you like about New York, do you ever get tired of it? I love the never-ending sense of surprise, New York is a city in constant reinvention, always moving-forward and I never get tired of it. Even in dire times, like the Covid year we are going through, New York’s spirit keeps fighting—and winning—to not only staying alive but to thrive. Last week was the 19th anniversary of September 11, the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in Downtown Manhattan. To brighten this somber day, Lewis Miller Design, the flower design shop that is specially famed for creating the Flower Flash™ happenings, in partnership with Fifth Avenue, gifted the city with four striking flower installations.
The four flower flashes ran along Fifth Avenue between 58th and 52nd Streets. There is a quirky smokestack that never looked more bohemian overrun with daisies and marigolds; a bust stop draped in giant, happy sunflowers resembling theatre curtains; a secret garden bench by the Pulitzer Fountain in Central Park, a perfect place to remember a loved one; and a huge ombre flower heart, a motif that is becoming Lewis Miller Design’s signature, leaning against the street pole at 55th Street.
“Honoring this day and every day because New Yorkers have been through a lot and we always back up.” Says the designer. I share the sentiment as I constantly feel the need to honor this extraordinary city. So far, I’ve created the Made in NY mark, the New York City Football Club badge, the Iconic New York Poster, and the limited -edition Iconic New York Illuminated print — all inspired by and for the city.
