Archive for the ‘Roslyn Street’ tag
The steps of St Canice’s Catholic church on Roslyn Street, Elizabeth Bay, are opened up for people, without a home, to sleep on, but they’re cleared on Sundays to make way for civilian church lovers.
The people who make camp there often have pretty involved bedding, including mattresses and privacy screens, but this takes the cake.
It’s a double bed made from multiple layers of wine-box-bladders. It’s bound together with gaffer tape and has bladders above and below a central wooden plate. Looks like they made some effort to make a pillow end, though I can’t explain the bits of pole sticking up.
Our first thoughts were, “Oh look, someone stayed up all night making a bed.” But we realised it would take either some planning to save all those bladders or some amazing luck to stumble across them just when you wanted a bed. Either way an amazing Darlinghurst project.
This is a guest post by Mook Simpson, the blogger and artist behind the ace This Is For That blog.
We’ve had a few leads on ‘alphabafitti,’ as Kym Chapple calls it, appearing about town.
But there’s something about this one, on Roslyn Street, Kings Cross, that makes me wonder – copycat or the real? So I went back to the source, and it’s no copycat.
I like running through some of the recent this is for that hits, W is for “Weather Girl” is a particular favourite.
We hope that the latest “R is for” is not spelling the end of our much-loved chalk alphabet riddle.
Spotted by Rachel a couple of days ago, on Roslyn St, down near St Luke’s Hospital was this.
It’s all okay. “R” is followed by “S” and “T”.
A quick update on Blanco’s progress.
The menu is up for show at the entrance.
The space looks ready to go.
But will Baron’s be resurrected?
I’ve been watching this building’s development for some time now. It’s on Roslyn Street in Kings Cross.
It is no accident it looks like a tribute to Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. It is, the building is even called ‘Barcelona’.
According to today’s Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Living section, a new restaurant and bar, Blanco, is all set to open in the building.
We’ve been noticing this graffiti all over town.
Here’s the latest, scribbled on the wall of St Canice’s catholic church on Roslyn Gardens, near the corner of Roslyn Street.
UPDATE: Thanks to @alliejt‘s keen eye, we’ve got another clue.
So now we’ve had:
A is for “azimuth”
C is for “cephlapod”
K is for “kibosh”
M is for “modulate”
N is for “nebulous”
Z is for “zipper”
Is it a riddle?
Cafe 9, sorry, No. 9, at 9 Ward Av, Potts Point/Kings Cross opened its doors a couple of weeks ago.
Already, I can’t remember what used to occupy the spot, just up from the corner at Roslyn Street.
It is tiny inside but makes excellent use of the space with a mezzanine level.
It is intimate and feels like you are in someone’s fancy sitting room, with elaborately framed landscape and portrait artworks, a fire, a chandelier, an antique clock.
We just stopped in for (Genovese) coffee.
But I do like the look of the simple breakfast menu.
