1. Le Baron
The opening of Le Baron has seen more delays than Kanye West & Jay-Z's "Watch the Throne" album. We've been hearing about the anticipated opening of the club, owned by nightlife impresario/artist/hotel entrepreneur Andre Saraiva for over a year now. Each expected opening has came and went breaking the little hearts of downtown kids waiting to party as the Parisians do.
The opening of possibly the most anticipated club this year may be here sooner than we think- for real this time. The latest news has Andre dubbing the opening his "Christmas present to New York"
In a recent interview with T Magazine, Saraiva says:
"The club is ready, but we’ve been waiting for some paperwork. And I couldn’t open both London and New York at the same time."

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
