Animators Bill Plympton, Signe Baumane, and Patrick Smith enjoy the smallest house warming party of all time. After over six years of living in Soho, I now call the Lower East Side home! I actually lived on the LES back in 2000, but just for a year. It's changed so much I can't even believe it. So far, the most bizarre thing about the new hood is the uncanny amount of times I bump into people I know. other than that I'm really digging the walk to the tribeca studio every morning through the crowded small streets of China town. This city and it's neighborhoods continue to be a never ending source of inspiration and energy for me.
