From the MAYOR OF NEW YORK

As Mayor of New York City, I am delighted to join New York City’s original City Guide in welcoming you to the greatest city in the world. This year, more than 54 million visitors will come to New York City, and we want every one of you to have a unique and unforgettable experience. From world-class restaurants to one-of-a-kind food trucks, from the theaters of Broadway to free summer concerts in our parks, from boutiques to vintage shops — ours is a city with something to offer everyone. And to make the most of your time here, experience this city the way New Yorkers do, by visiting neighborhoods in every borough. Spend an afternoon exploring the incomparable Brooklyn Museum or New York Botanical Garden. Visit Chinatown in Flushing, Queens for incredible cuisine and culture. Ride the Staten Island Ferry—and then stay and have lunch at one of the best pizza restaurants in the city. Visit the Bronx Zoo and make this a trip the family will never forget. Every borough and every neighborhood has something to offer. Take a walk off the beaten path and explore some of the hidden gems and local spots that make New York City the greatest place on earth. Welcome! Yours sincerely,

Bill de Blasio

The newest show at the SOLOMON R.

In addition, Jackson Pollock’s Alchemy (1947) is being shown in the U.S. for the first time in nearly 50 years. More than a dozen works on paper by Picasso and Van Gogh, rarely on view to the public, can be seen in the Thannhauser Gallery, and paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, and Édouard Manet are displayed on the museum’s legendary ramps. 1071 Fifth Ave. (89th St.), 212-423-3500, guggenheim.org

Cover Story

Jonathan Dorado

Brooklyn’s World-Class Home for Culture

A historic Beaux-Arts façade welcomes visitors to one of New York’s great treasures, the Brooklyn Museum.

If Brooklyn was a city on its own and not a borough of NYC, it would be the fourth largest metropolis in the U.S. (and closing in fast on Chicago for third place). Brooklyn has become a tourist destination to rival Manhattan, complete with its own world-class institution: the Brooklyn Museum. Just 20 minutes from Manhattan you’ll find a priceless collection that will surprise you with its range, from ancient Egypt to European masterpieces to a feast of decorative art. One of the country’s largest and oldest art museums, the roots at the Brooklyn Museum go back to 1823. The museum’s grand structure was originally designed by McKim, Mead & White, the architectural firm behind many of the city’s most iconic buildings. In 2004, a spectacular new front was added, combining the original 19th-century Beaux-Arts façade with a modernist two-story glass pavilion. As with Brooklyn itself, old and new remain connected, in dialogue with one another. Enter the pavilion and you’ll encounter the building’s exposed piers, their original brick left raw, sharing space with legendary sculptures by Auguste Rodin, whose work is well represented in the museum’s collection. Move deeper into the building and you’ll encounter a treasury of world cul24 www.cityguideny.com

ture. The Egyptian galleries hold more than 1,200 objects, including a gilded statuette of Amenhotep III and a stylized terracotta statuette that was made over 5,000 years ago. The American Art galleries run from The Americas’ First Peoples through the 20th and 21st century with Beyond Borders and Boundaries. The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is the first public space of its kind in the U.S. You can also spend hours losing yourself in the 23 American period rooms, which include one of the city’s original homes, the Jans Martense Schenck House, which has been a part of Brooklyn since 1676. Special exhibits and programming are also major draws here. Right now Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern provides a new look at an iconic American artist. Fittingly it’s at the Brooklyn Museum, which hosted her first solo museum exhibition in 1927. Presenting O’Keeffe’s remarkable wardrobe in dialogue with iconic paintings and photographs, this singular exhibi-

tion focuses in on the modernist persona O’Keeffe crafted for herself through her dress, her art, and her lifestyle. Since this is the modern Brooklyn, food here is considerably more than an afterthought. The Café offers delicious and healthful sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, and more. For a more intimate experience, The Norm at the Brooklyn Museum is led by Michelin-starred Chef Saul Bolton, incorporating influences from around the globe (also very much in keeping with the Brooklyn spirit). Another great reason to visit the Brooklyn Museum is its location at a welcoming hub of tourism. Prospect Park, designed by the same team that designed Central Park—after they’d learned from their mistakes—is just down the block, complete with waterfalls and a zoo. BAM, Barclays, and boutiques are also close at hand, and right next door is the Brooklyn

FROM GENIE TO JEFFERSON James Monroe Iglehart, who accrued 1,000+ performances and took home a Tony playing Genie in Disney’s Aladdin, passed the torch to his long-time standby Major Attaway on February 19th (Attaway’s first “permanent” performance came two days later). As for Iglehart, he’ll be trading flying carpets for politics when he takes over as the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton. His first performance in the runaway hit will be mid-April...official date TBA!

Christine Ebersole all made up for War Paint.

Major Attaway is ready to shine as Aladdin’s new Genie.

as singing and dancing candy impresario Willy Wonka. This preview is followed on the 29th by what is being heralded as a welcome twist on a good thing: acclaimed actresses Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon will be alternating the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. The final show to drop anchor on Broadway this March (3/31) is Bandstand, a swing-centric musical set in post-WWII America starring Tony nominee Laura Osnes, (Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella), Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Corey Cott (Newsies).

SISTER ACT(S)!

t

Joan Marcus

Kinky Boots alumna Abby Mueller, sister of Jessie Mueller (who won the 2014 Tony Award playing Carole King in the hit musical bio Beautiful), will be returning to Broadway on March 7th when she replaces the show’s current star, Chilina Kennedy. (Kennedy is heading to her hometown of Toronto to bring her Beautiful wherewithal to the city’s Ed Mirvish Theater from June 27th through August 20th, before returning to the Great White Way.) Abby, who originated the Carole King role in the production’s national tour, will overlap her sister’s Tony-nominated run as pie-baking-momto-be in Waitress this month before Jessie exits the show on March 26th. Clearly, the time is primo for scoring a “Mueller Exacta”—keeping in mind your window of opportunity slams shut after a fleeting three weeks.
