Back in May, we tapped Art Production Fund
director Casey Fremont Crowe
to curate a list of 10 rising NYC artists
we needed to buy sooner rather than later. Since her advice paid off so handsomely then (S&P downgrade be damned, we can feel our Shelter Serra appreciating), we couldn't help but hit up this in-the-know newlywed to slip us a peek inside her creative West Village 'hood—pretty much the holy real-estate grail of artists post-MoMA exhibitions. Fremont Crowe spent the day with yours truly, bopping around the streets in the cutest-but-never-cutesy ensembles, giving us the lowdown on where to thrift the most affordable antiques and a happy-hour find we might be hitting up asap. Throw her three can-we-have-'em outfit changes in the mix, and we think we've got ourselves a masterpiece. And, this girl's not selfish—she's sharing all her style and neighborhood secrets with you, too!
