UPDATING
AN ICON
Lincoln Center has a New Leader and A New Look
BY ANNE
here was a playground on the roof of the Manhattan elementary
school Jed Bernstein attended in the early 1960s. From this
vantage point during recess, he watched the first buildings of
Lincoln Center rising on the site of a bulldozed Upper West Side
neighborhood, just a few blocks away.
The little boy gazing down from the roof couldn’t have had an
inkling that some five decades later, he would be at the helm of the
prestigious performing arts complex that was taking shape before his eyes.
Bernstein, now a well known Broadway producer and arts executive who was
recently instrumental in bringing the Bucks County Playhouse back to life,
begins his tenure as president of Lincoln Center this month.
By this past November, Bernstein was dividing his time between the
Playhouse in New Hope, Pa. and his new office at Lincoln Center. “Having the
chance to lead an iconic institution, and a unique institution, is very special,”
he said during a recent interview in New Hope. “No other place in the world
has Lincoln Center’s concentration of world-class performing arts.”
Bernstein’s appointment to succeed longtime Lincoln Center president
Reynold Levy comes near the end of a $1.2 billion renovation of the 16.3-acre
campus. Designed to make the world-class arts center—the largest and most
comprehensive in the world—more open, accessible, user-friendly, and
aesthetically pleasing, the project will be complete once Avery Fisher Hall,
home to the New York Philharmonic, is renovated. Patrons and members of
the public can now find places to hang out and relax as well as performances
of opera, ballet, theater, film, jazz, chamber, and orchestral music to attend.
There is the David Rubenstein Atrium on Broadway, which has a central
box office as well as a café with plenty of tables and free wifi. There is the
Lincoln Ristorante, a pricey dining destination behind Avery Fisher Hall, with a
tilting, grass-covered roof that invites lounging and sunbathing during warm
months. The front of Alice Tully Hall, once boxy and forbidding, is now an airy,
glass-walled gathering space, home to another popular café and seating area.
LEVIN
of Eating
QA
{By ANNE LEviN}
ot so long ago, a meal at a museum meant cafeteria
cuisine taken in nondescript surroundings. Patrons
in search of a snack, or something more substantial,
usually found it in a steamy basement dining hall,
served by ladies of a certain age wearing white
uniforms and hairnets.
But that was in the twentieth century. Here in the twenty-first,
eating, or rather, dining, has become as much a part of the museum
experience as viewing the exhibits. Especially in New York City,
museum eateries have become destinations in themselves. You
don’t have to view the walls of Klimts at the Neue Gallery to indulge
in Café Sabarsky’s apple strudel, with a generous dollop of schlag
(whipped cream). The Himalayan art at the Rubin Museum of Art
is inspiring, but more than one foodie has been known to skip the
galleries and head straight to the restaurant Serai to sample fresh
baked samosas and dumplings.
Serai (the Rubin, 150 West 17th Street) takes its name from
the overnight stopovers for caravans along trade routes like the
Silk Road, where travelers could eat, drink and purchase or trade
goods for their journeys. The same team that started Buddakan
and Morimoto, the Starr Group, came up with the concept and
the menu for this unique museum restaurant. Chef Ali Loukzada
offers Indian wraps, sausage bao bu, and his own take on macand-cheese, among numerous other specialties inspired by the
Himalayan region. On Wednesday nights when the museum
stays open until 7 p.m., Serai has a happy hour with live music
and special programs starting at 5 p.m. On Friday nights, the
restaurant becomes the K-2 Lounge, with a special Pan-Asian

Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s groundbreaking vision for the
Guggenheim Museum (1071 Fifth Avenue) was the inspiration
for The Wright, which serves lunch and brunch (with special
extended hours for the “Picasso Black and White” exhibit October
6-January 21). Taking a visual cue from the sleek, iconic design
of the museum’s exterior, the restaurant has clean lines and a
colorful installation by British conceptual artist Liam Gillick. All of
this is a backdrop for modern American fare that includes prix
fixe offerings as well as a bar menu with regular à la carte items
and an imaginative line-up of cocktails. Chef Rodolfo Contreras is
planning a special dessert and a Spanish-themed bar menu for the
Picasso exhibit. For lighter offerings, there is Café 3, an espresso
and snack bar serving sandwiches, pastries, coffee, tea, wine
and beer, overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park. Visit www.
guggenheim.org or call (212) 427-5690.
The museum dining room with the most spectacular view is
Robert atop the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle.
The eatery won the 2012 Open Table Diners Choice Award for Best
Scenic View Restaurant. Patrons lounge on sofas or sit at tables
by the windows while working their way through lunch, brunch,
cocktails, desserts or dinner. The décor is starkly modern, with
sculptural, steel cocktail tables and illuminated pink and orange
Lucite light fixtures that look like mobiles. Chef Leo Forneas
creates modern American specialties such as charred octopus,
chilled corn soup with avocado and cilantro, and cheesecake with
huckleberry compote and lychee foam. Visit www.robertnyc.com

When did you first become interested in maternal health?
When I became a mom in 2003, I became more interested and concerned
with maternal health. I had experienced a complication after delivering my
daughter which helped direct my focus in this direction and was the impetus
for directing my first documentary No Woman No Cry. Before that I had no
idea that hundreds of thousands of girls and women die every year from
complications related to pregnancy and childbirth simply because they don’t
have access to basic or emergency maternity care. Almost all of these deaths
are preventable. When I learned this I asked myself what could I do, and it
turns out, quite a lot.
Tell us about your experience of making the film No Woman, No Cry, including
where you traveled to and how you connected with the women in the film.
While pregnant with my second child in 2005, I did a lot of traveling in
Central America where I came across many individuals who were successfully
helping women rise above the tragic maternal mortality statistics. I wanted
to share these stories with the world, the considerable challenges and real
solutions. It was the hope in these stories that inspired No Woman, No Cry
which features stories of real women from my travels to Tanzania, Bangladesh,
Guatemala and the U.S. between 2008 and 2010. I have gone back to each of
the countries where we filmed and most of the participants have viewed the
film. Once you are a part of someone’s story they are with you forever.

At the entrance to Lincoln Center’s main plaza, some of Columbus
Avenue is now sunken to a drop-off lane below ground, with direct access to
the basement concourse. The fountain that is the plaza’s focus has been
redesigned with new technologies for special-effect water shows. Diller
Scofidio + Renfro, the lead architects of the entire development project, have
designed a sculpturally striking bridge that spans West 65th Street near
Amsterdam Avenue. At the Juilliard School, a studio with large windows
allows passersby to watch dance students in action.
Though much of the revamping of Lincoln Center has been completed,
the urgency to raise money never goes away. “There is tremendous financial
need on an annual basis, and there is always the challenge to identify new
revenue streams,” said Bernstein who, as a theatrical producer and former
head of the Broadway League trade association knows how to coax
contributions out of investors.
Bernstein, 58, began his career in advertising, working for the firms Wells
Rich Greene, Ogilvy & Mather, and Ally & Gargano. Switching his focus to
theater was a natural progression for him. “I grew up on the Upper West Side
in a family that valued art,” he said. “I was taken to ballet, opera, and classical
music at an early age, often at Lincoln Center. We were not a family of
significant means, and we could access the arts easily. If I can communicate to
others and facilitate for others the joy and satisfaction of the arts that I grew
up experiencing, that’s not a bad goal.”
When first approached about taking on the Lincoln Center presidency,
Bernstein was surprised. But he came around quickly. “I was kind of baffled at
first. I thought, why me? But the more time I spent with the head-hunter and
the chair of Lincoln Center, the more I understood,” he said. “Sharing my love
of the performing arts with people makes me the happiest. And one thing I’m
good at is connecting with people and seeing ways to build relationships,
being entrepreneurial about how to make opportunities happen.”
When it was conceived in the 1950s, Lincoln Center was the first arts
What efforts related to Every Mother Counts (EMC) are you the most
proud of?
Every Mother Counts is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by
pregnancy and childbirth around the world. We inform, engage, and mobilize
new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and
women worldwide.
There are many are things I am proud of. One in particular is the way we’re
beginning to see a groundswell of interest and concern about the welfare of
women and mothers in the world. When I had my childbirth complication ten
years ago, there was very little attention being paid to the problem of maternal

A TROPICAL PARADISE
IN THE BR NX
BY
ELLEN GILBERT

nspirational, coveted, and, let’s face it, kind of crazy-making, orchids
have a reputation for inspiring passion. “The nursery owner petted
each plant as we passed,” reports author Susan Orlean in her book
The Orchid Thief. Orlean makes it a point to never own an orchid, lest
she fall prey to the proprietary orchid madness she is observing all
around her.
This effusiveness is probably nowhere more evident than at the New York
Botanical Garden’s (NYBG) annual Orchid Show. The theme of this year’s show
is “Key West Contemporary,” and it will run from March 1 through April 21, 2014.
The Orchid Show is the largest exhibition of its kind in the United States,
and NYBG employees and volunteers pull out all the stops for it. “We work on
planning the exhibitions years in advance, particularly in creating the theme,
securing designers, and creating designs for the set pieces,” says Karen
Daubmann, the Garden’s associate vice president of exhibitions and public
engagement. “A team of roughly 20 gardeners spends several weeks
preparing orchids, and planting them among the sets in the conservatory.”
“When you have only two pennies left in
the world, buy a loaf of bread with one,
and a lily with the other.”
—Chinese Proverb
The epicenter of the Orchid Show is the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory,
considered by many to be a “must see” landmark destination all year round.
The Victorian-style glasshouse opened in 1902, and serves as home for a
permanent exhibition, “A World of Plants,” where visitors can embark on an
“‘ecotour’ around the world and across the ages.” The Conservatory also hosts
the Garden's seasonal flower shows and exhibitions, including the Orchid
Show and Holiday Train Show that immediately precedes it.
The educational mission of the NYBG shines through at the Orchid Show.

orchid care demonstrations on weekends at 2 and 3 p.m. A wealth of orchid
(and other botanical) information is available online, along with good
old-fashioned printed hand-outs, like the one devoted to America’s favorite
orchid, Phalaenopsis, a.k.a. “Moth Orchid.” The highly informative sheet
includes the plant’s “Cultural Requirements,” with instructions for optimizing
light, temperature, water humidity, and air (“ventilation is important to keep
Phalaenopsis thriving”).
On selected days during the Orchid Show, the celebration continues after
dark, when cocktails and music add to the already magical scene.
A YEAR-ROUND DESTINATION
While orchid-worship at the NYBG is particularly frenzied during the annual
show, it should be noted that these “seductive stars of tropical plant
collections,” hailing from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Americas, can be
seen in changing displays all year long in the Conservatory and in the Orchid
Terrarium in the Library Building.
To be sure, there are many ways to enjoy the NYBG throughout the year.
Its 250 acres is home to 50 acres of native forest; indoor rain forests and
deserts; and 50 different kinds of gardens, including the award-winning
Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. Regularly scheduled narrated tram tours are
available, along with programs that focus on in-season garden highlights.
Children are welcome to get their hands dirty and grow their own vegetables
and flowers in the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden, and the Everett Adventure
Garden encourages exploration in a world of mazes. Cafés provide on-the-go
sustenance and a dining pavilion offers more leisurely dining.
The LuEsther T. Mertz Library, which includes a lab for conserving and
preserving older printed materials, is a world-class institution. It houses over
one million accessioned items (books, journals, original art and illustration,
seed and nursery catalogs, architectural plans of glass houses, scientific
reprints, and photographs) and over 4,800 linear feet of archival materials. It
is rich in both scholarly and general plant information, offering a wide array of
print and electronic resources. Informed staff members are available to
anyone visiting the Library through the Internet or in person.
Phalaenopsis orchids, also called moth orchids, are the most popular type of orchid and one of the easiest to grow at home.

IN NEW YORK CITY
The neighborhood today is full of trendy restaurants, bars, boutiques, and a mixture of old
apartments and shiny new condos. But in its pre-gentrification days, the East Village was the
beating heart of the nation’s punk rock and art scene. Its pulsating, rhythmic, drug-fueled,
rotten heart. New York never sounded or looked so good. {BY DILSHANIE PERERA}

Janie Bryant is the Emmy Award winning costume designer currently working on the
hit AMC show Mad Men. Her thoroughly-researched designs, inspired by classics of
the period, convey character and plot. Here, she shares some of the secrets of her art
as well as some of her favorite Manhattan sources for vintage style.

LAS: How did you enter the world of costume design?
JB: I studied fashion design in school and after graduation, lived
in Paris for several months, then moved to New York and got a job
as a fashion design assistant. I met a costume designer at a party
and decided that was the direction I wanted to take. I called all the
film people I knew and told them I wanted to learn the business.
One month later, I got my first job as an assistant costume
designer. I’ve always loved classic films and they continue to serve
as an inspiration for my work. I like to say that my first experience
as a costume designer was with Barbie Dolls. (Laughs)
LAS: Which fashion icons from the 60s have most influenced
your work at Mad Men?
JB: My designs are rooted in reality. I do a lot of research by
looking at old issues of Time, Life (magazine) and catalogs from
Sears, JC Penney, and Spiegel. I portray the costumes in realistic
ways and use a lot of references. For instance, Don Draper’s
costumes are representative of Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Frank
Sinatra, and David Ogilvy who was an influential ad man. Some
of the women that have influenced my work on Mad Men are:
Jean Shrimpton, Raquel Welch, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren,
Brigitte Bardot, and Twiggy of course.
LAS: How does the costume design process work with Mad Men?
JB: It starts from reading the script and then I have creative
discussions with Matthew Weiner. I do my research and then
either I resource and rent from the amazing costume houses in
Los Angeles, or I design and build costumes from scratch by
making a sketch for the tailor who will drape a form in the fabric
I have selected. From there a pattern is made and then a final
fitting with the actor. LAS: Give us an example on how you have changed a character’s
style when the storyline changes.
JB: Peggy is a character that has so many complex character arcs.
She’s one of the most complex characters on the show. During the
first season she gained weight, got pregnant, and her clothing was
dowdy. She became more progressive and more fashionable, then
very upbeat in season five when her clothing was a mix of feminine
and masculine, wearing menswear cotton blouses, then to power
suits when she had a total transformation with her new life.
LAS: Talk about your use of color on the show.
JB: Color and pattern can evoke an emotion within a scene. Early in Megan and Don’s relationship, she wore various shades
