BUILDING "QUILTY"




We're putting finishing touches this week on our next Birdbath, opening in a few days on the Upper West Side. We inherited an old quilt shop in an even older building. We've been slowly [too slowly] turning it into what will be a sweet and lovely new bakery on the corner of Columbus Avenue and 85th Street. Our nickname for this Birdbath is "Quilty," [all Birdbaths have nicknames], in part because "Down Quilts" was the prior tenant for a long-lived 29 years and in part because Peter Sellers as Clare Quilty in the original version [1961] of "Lolita" is an all-time favorite role in du cinema.
