The link to the HGTV program Selling New York, in which we get a brief camera cut shout-out in Dr. Grymm’s laboratory (thank you, Joey!), is now available. The video features a brief interview with another SPB contributor Ayleen-the Peacemaker, and throughout you can see luminaries like Emperor Justinian Stanislaus of the Red Fork Empire, gentleman and scholar Daniel Holzman-Tweed, and members of The Wandering Legion of the Thomas Tew. Dr. Grymm was the mastermind behind helping CORE realtors promote the apartment by introducing them to Steampunk, and coordinating the widely publicized first Steampunk Open House.  The Chelsea apartment, which is listed at $1.75 million is still available.

Dr. Grymm writes of his involvement with the CORE realtors, critics of Steampunk design, and the Chelsea apartment as a whole here.

And finally we were thrilled to learn that Steampunk is alive and well in our own neck of the woods.

Guests include a star-studded line-up with Abney Park, Professor Elemental, O. M. Grey, and many others. You can find tickets and event listings here.
