Junior wakes up in the morning asking for bagels and lox — from Zabar’s. Your New Yorker-in-training is a quick study.
So it’s only fitting that his first lesson in letters would indicate that C is for Central Park Zoo and M is for Metrocard.
Local stationer Mr. Boddington’s Studio — founded by designer Rebecca Schmidt-Ruebensaal — is best known for its dapper wedding invitations. But since Schmidt-Ruebensaal became a mom two years ago, they’ve got baby on the brain. Their “NYC Loves ABC” poster is the first glimpse at an extensive new baby line rolling out later this year.
The 11-by-17-inch poster features Mr. Boddington’s signature hand-drawn style and plenty of tongue-in-cheek Big Apple references: S is for Schlepping, J is for Jaywalking, and H is for Hipsters.
Twenty-six pint-size love letters to the city. We’re spellbound.
