Home Improvement The Architectural Digest Home Design Show is the go-to event for nesters. So what if you’re not planning a basement-to-attic renovation or even a single-room makeover just yet? It’s fun to see the latest, most innovative furniture and accessories available, because you never know: You may be inspired to start a project. Exhibiting this year is Aaron Scott Design, a Brooklyn-based firm specializing in one-of-a-kind and commissioned works of functional design, such as the eye-catching sculptural bench (below, 2012), made of laminated layers of solid cherry wood, carved by hand and finished with lacquer for smoothness and comfort. | Architectural Digest Home Design Show, Pier 94, 12th Ave., at W. 55th St., 800.677.6278, Mar. 20-23

On the Line

What makes a great dancer? That’s a question choreographer Alonzo King has thought long and hard about. “A great dancer has the qualities that you admire in great human beings,” he says. Great dancers possess “a heightened sense of awareness.” There is “fearlessness,” “compassion,” “understanding,” “generosity” and “largeness” in every move they make. Do dancers in King’s own company (above, Courtney Henry) meet his criteria? New York audiences can decide this month. | Alonzo King LINES Ballet, Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Ave., 212.242.0800, Mar. 18-23

A Bway First

Fan Club

In the 1940s or 1950s, a musical like Rocky would have tried out in Boston or Philadelphia before it was considered ready to face New York critics and audiences. In 2012, Rocky’s road from Oscar-winning movie to Broadway contender took a detour— opening in Hamburg, Germany (right). Written by Americans, the show was translated and performed in German, making it the first Broadway musical to premiere in Germany. However, for its local debut this month, Rocky sings and throws punches in its native English. | Rocky, Winter Garden Theatre, 1634 Broadway, 212.239.6200

Popular stars of the small and big screens test their acting chops on the Great White Way. • Bryan Cranston (below), breaking good in his Broadway debut, portrays the charismatic 36th president of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson. | All the Way, Neil Simon Theatre, 250 W. 52nd St., 877.250.2929

“In If/Then, Idina Menzel [left, with Anthony Rapp] does some of the finest work she’s ever done. To be onstage with her every night: It’s always alive. It’s always meaningful.”

Mother Love

Tyne Daly has played many memorable mothers on Broadway, most notably Mama Rose in Gypsy, for which she won the 1990 Tony Award for Leading Actress in a Musical. This season, she portrays another formidable matriarch in Terrence McNally’s new play, Mothers and Sons (right, with, from left, Grayson Taylor, Bobby Steggert and Frederick Weller). While audiences may not initially warm to her character—a woman who, 25 years after the death of her son from AIDS, has yet to come to terms with his gay lifestyle—Daly must. “An actor has to love the character he’s playing,” she has said, even if it’s an archvillain like Iago. “It’s part of an actor’s assignment to be sympathetic. You have to think your person is right, and is forgivable and lovable.” Otherwise, how to portray him or her convincingly? | Mothers and Sons, John Golden Theatre, 252 W. 45th St., 212.239.6200

art, antiques & Collectibles by Troy Segal

Asian Mystique It was the late-1600s, and among with-it Europeans, chinoiserie was all the rage—items decorated with Asian motifs (fans, pagodas, etc.). A factory in Nevers, France, became famed for pieces like this faience pocket flask (ca. 1680-90), decorated in what dealer Diana Stradling dubs Wan-Li style, depicting a languid Chinese figure and scene on both sides. But it was labor-intensive to make, requiring two firings: One for the blue glaze, the other for the yellow tones. | The Stradlings, by appointment only, 212.534.8135

“In our shop, we like to mix historical pieces. No matter the style or the period—beauty speaks to beauty, through ages and centuries.” | Mercedes Desio, co-owner, Etós, 67 E. 11th St., 212.673.3056

Perfect for Parties

Cigarette-smoking today tends to be a solo, even furtive, activity. In contrast, sniffing snuff, its 19th-century predecessor, was a communal event (usually among gentlemen), with a box of the finely ground tobacco handed ‘round, says antiques dealer Mark Schaffer. “So, you wanted a nice piece to show off to your friends or display on a table.” With its carefully matched pieces of dramatically figured, rich green malachite and silver-gilt mounts, carved on every side, this Austrian box, ca. 1840, is an especially refined example of the genre. | A La Vieille Russie, 781 Fifth Ave., 212.752.1727


Much as classical Greece and Rome inspired 19thcentury European artists, the history of ancient China was honored by Meiji Era (1868-1912) Japanese artisans—as in this figure of the third-century Chinese general Kwan Yu, one of a set (the other piece depicts a faithful retainer). Gold-lacquered and encrusted with mother-of-pearl, it looks like bronze, but is actually carved wood—a trompe l’oeil effect appropriate for a military strategist. | Flying Cranes Antiques Ltd., The Manhattan Art & Antiques Center, 1050 Second Ave., 212.223.4600

2/10/14 6:12:23 PM

Hail the Hero

East meets West in this unusual tankard (ca. 1680). The porcelain body was crafted in the kilns of Arita, Japan; it probably was intended for the European market, as the shape isn’t typical of Asia. The silver lid was hammered in Amsterdam, and mounted with a medal commemorating Dutch Admiral Maarten Tromp, who led the Netherlands to many a sea victory in the early 1600s. This cross-breeding of crafts was unusual, but it makes sense. After all, if you want to toast a great naval hero, only the best materials will do. | S.J. Shrubsole, 104 E. 57th St., 212.753.8920

Leaves of Brass

“I regard nature as being the strongest influence,” artist Harry Bertoia (1915-1978) once noted. This delicate, untitled wire sculpture of his from the 1950s does indeed resemble a thatch of straw, or perhaps phragmites, the spiky wetlands reeds. Yet, compared to some of Bertoia’s other renowned series, which depict realistic dandelions or trees, the tabletopsize piece borders on the abstract, its rods of melted brass-coated steel almost pulsating with a nervous, Atomic Age energy. | Jonathan Boos, by appointment, 212.535.5096

Garden Variety

Americans are quick to recognize Danish Modern furniture, but are less familiar with Scandinavian artists working in a more traditional mode, such as Kai Nielsen (1882-1924). Famed for his public sculptures, he also specialized in smaller female figures, such as this young girl of reconstituted stone (1923-24)—one of his final works—created for a Swedish home. While atypical among usually idealized, tranquil garden sculptures—note her awkwardly placed foot— she is quite characteristic of Nielsen’s nudes, whose contorted shapes possess a raw, sinewy beauty. | Lost City Arts, 18 Cooper Square, 212.375.0500 | march 2014 | IN New YORK

A Mellow Morton’s

There’s a new kind of steakhouse in town. Morton’s The Steakhouse, just a few blocks from Downtown’s One World Trade Center, is open and showing a gentler, more femalefriendly side. The bilevel space includes an airy, softy lit lounge on the first floor, while the main dining room on the floor below offers yellow-and black-glass-bulbed chandeliers, spacious textured leather banquettes, an open kitchen and a most charming wait and management staff. The menu is of the same sterling quality we have come to expect from the Morton’s brand: Superior cuts of beef, including two standouts—a deeply flavored Cajun rib-eye steak that is not too spicy, and a classic, buttery New York strip. Dessert— apple crisp with a cinnamon pecan crust and vanilla ice cream—was just the right palatecleanser. | Morton’s The Steakhouse, 136 Washington St., 212.608.0171

Good news, foodies: there’s a new kid on the block. Smack dab in the middle of Hell’s Kitchen is The Marshal, a small gem of an eatery in this bustling neighborhood. The concept is simple and on point, trendwise: sustainable farm-totable meat and produce, wellplayed into fresh, homey offerings. Examples on the menu range from a well-stocked pot roast hash to a raw butternut squash salad (above). Hail the hearty! | The Marshal, 628 10th Ave., 212.582.6300

“It’s fun changing the menu. I’ve been doing a pear and blue cheese salad for four years now, and yet every year it’s completely different.” | Chef Carmine Di

In the mood for a stately cruise without having to leave the island? Then sail over to the East Side’s elegant Water Club. Moored on an East River barge, the restaurant boasts elegant white tablecloths, twinkling lights and huge windows, which offer views of the sparkling Ed Koch 59th Street Bridge, the East River and the Queens skyline. The menu veers toward classic dishes, such as “old-school lobster Thermidor,” roasted Dover sole and filet mignon. | The Water Club, East River & E. 30th St., 212.683.3333

Sassy Brasserie

With a sexy S-shaped white marble bar, spiral staircase and artwork by Matisse, Léger and Picasso, Brasserie 8 1/2 makes an impressively chic statement in Midtown. Recently, the restaurant inherited a new executive chef, Franck Deletrain, whose résumé incudes stints at The Four Seasons and The Sea Grill restaurants in Manhattan. His new tweaks on the menu include dishes such as a satiny textured chilled lobster (above), mussels in ratatouille sauce, and pâté straight from his family recipe book. Recently, a lunch of field geens with sherry vinaigrette and roasted salmon were great examples of the dictionary definition of brasserie: a casual bistro serving simple, satisfying food. | Brasserie 8 1/2, 9 W. 57th St., 212.829.0812 | march 2014 | IN New YORK

At Ease, Soldier

The made-in-Brooklyn brand Cadet has stolen the limelight of Manhattan men’s fashion, with first a store in the East Village and now a new boutique in the West Village. The true-blue American garments draw inspiration from the clean and crisp aesthetics of wartime military academies. Its Spring/Summer collection features a deep blue, poppy-printed “Sergeant’s Shirt,” tuckable aviator pants and two-tone tanks that easily transition from the beach to the street. Cadet makes it clear that cuts, not just camo, create haute military couture. | Cadet, 69 Eighth Ave., 917.722.2390

The Weavers

After 150 years of supplying designers with cashmere yarns, Todd & Duncan has gone public, launching a womenswear line with its own boutiques in SoHo (below) and on the Upper East Side. But don’t let the Scottish firm’s venerable, to-the-trade history mislead you—no same-old argyles or boxy cardigans here. Instead, the collection abounds in sweater dresses, pencil skirts, hip (length) blazers and other flattering styles, in soft colors and smart patterns.—Troy Segal | Todd & Duncan, 54 Greene St., 212.920.5546; 766 Madison Ave., 212.920.5140


Admit it—the glowing digits on your smartphone have pushed your onceindispensable, beloved wristwatches into early retirement. But with a new boutique in the base of the Ritz-Carlton New York, directly across from Central Park, Swiss manufacturer Bovet 1822 shows America that watches can still be a power player in a highimpact wardrobe. The store showcases the nearly 200-year-old company’s chronometric creations, which feature stylish finishes and decorative touches on every component—even those hidden from sight—and includes a line of 50 timepieces sold exclusively in New York. Sorry, smartphone—quality timepieces still make for elegant accessories. | Bovet, 50 Central Park South, 212.257.5015

A Viennese couple’s mutual passion for art and design has birthed a new furniture and lifestyle shop that showcases sleek European craftsmanship.

From appearances in the iconic wardrobe of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw to selling party-ready dresses at Barneys, Australian brand Sass & Bide has always found a connection to New York. Now, the Down Under duds have their own Big Apple home: a flagship boutique in SoHo. Designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton capture a carefree, urban spirit with sheer fabrics, playful patterns and hues of gold, black and white in their eveningwear, while their casual garments beg for everyday use. | Sass & Bide, 480 Broome St., 212.226.8190

What can’t James Franco do? Not much. He’s an accomplished actor, director, screenwriter, teacher, painter and poet: A book of his poetry, Directing Herbert White (Graywolf Press), comes out in April. His breakout role on the television cult classic, Freaks and Geeks (19992000), led to such films as the Spider-Man trilogy (2002, 2004, 2007), Pineapple Express (2008) and 127 Hours (2010), which earned him an Academy Award nod for Best Actor. He’s currently working on several upcoming films: The Sound and the Fury (his own adaptation of the Faulkner novel, which he’s also directing and starring in), The Interview (release date Oct. 2014) and Queen of the Desert, which comes out sometime this year. Now, he’s adding to all that. He’s about to make his Broadway debut in John Steinbeck’s Depression-era play Of Mice and Men as migrant worker George. (Previews begin Mar. 19). Franco knows that movie sets are leisurely compared to the stress of eight shows a week. Is he nervous? Nope. Interested—in the big unknown.

also because I knew a lot of people would be watching, I wanted to find the perfect play to go out in. I’ve loved Steinbeck since I was very young. And Anna Shapiro is my favorite theater director. But even more than that, Anna had done an interview in which she was asked what her dream show was. And she said, Of Mice and Men. I thought, well then, I should help make her dream come true.

How does the play resonate today? Even though it’s set in a certain time, it’s never going to be dated. At the center is the relationship between the two men, George and Lennie. At the beginning, what George doesn’t realize is that what he has in Lennie [played by O’Dowd] is a friend. In a world where so many people are alone, they have each other. He only realizes that at the end, when Lennie is gone. So, that’s a story that will never, ever get old. It’s sad within the story, but there’s something positive that comes out of depicting a bond like they have. Even though the play ends tragically, that’s the positive aspect of it.

Is it true that you originally went into acting to overcome your shyness?

( )

Any worries about doing eight shows a week? I

don’t know: I’ve never done it. I’ve done plays in Los Angeles in small theaters, but we’ve never had an eightperformance-aweek schedule. As far as my nerves go … right now, I feel fine. If I’d been cast in this role for a movie, I’d feel very confident about it. [My co-star] Chris O’Dowd and I have great chemistry. I have total faith in director Anna Shapiro. So, on those levels, I feel great. I know I can give the performance, but it’s about doing it in this new kind of space and form. So that’s the big unknown.

The way I think it worked was: I was a very shy kid but I loved film and I loved acting. One of the things that I think prevented me from acting in school plays or local theater was partly my shyness, partly a fear of a very public kind of failure. Even though I loved film, I think that’s what prevented me from trying it early on. But when I did start acting it was that strange kind of phenomenon where all the shyness left me. I was in an imaginary world. And so everything that was inhibiting me was left aside once I was onstage.

“When I did start acting, all the shyness left me: I was in an imaginary world.”

You’ve had so much success in movies, why even try live theater? I love acting, I love exploring and I have to try Broadway at least once. If I didn’t, the only thing that would be holding me back is fear, and I could never let that stop me.

Why this play? It has all the elements I could ask for. And, you know, some people know my work and find me in buddy comedies or bromances. This is, in a way, the ultimate, tragic bromance. How did this role come about? I had been looking to do Broadway. Because it is my first time and because it is a big commitment of energy and time, and

where you will be living here? do you have any favorite parts of the city? I’m not sure where I’ll be living yet. I used to live in the Village, on 13th St. between Sixth and Seventh aves. I’ve also lived on the Lower East Side, on Clinton St. I loved those neighborhoods. I’m a big museum guy. I love the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, the Guggenheim. And I love gallery hopping. I’m also a big Broadway guy. I try to see all the plays I can. Then I end up at my favorite restaurant, the Waverly Inn.

You’ve been teaching at UCLA, USC and the California Institute of the Arts. I read that you do that because you want to “give back” some of what you’ve been given. That’s true. I love teaching. It’s great to work with talented young people. I realized that it’s changed my whole outlook: I don’t want to have to think about myself all the time. I can think about other people’s work for a while. I can help give young people the opportunity that I was given. There’s also this: As an actor, it’s always: me, me, me. But teaching, well, it’s just a nice thing not to have to be thinking that way for a while. IN New YORK | march 2014 |

including the midcentury mixedmedia combines of Robert Rauschenberg and the working process of painter Jasper Johns. But the Providence, R.I., sculptor especially admires Lee Bontecou’s groundbreaking wall sculptures in welded steel and canvas for their marriage of content with craftsmanship, qualities he brings to works like “Money Dress,” a diaphanous gown he knitted from $1,124 in cut-up dollar bills, and his American flags, created from sheets of lead stitched together with metal thread. “Her work is so tight, so powerful,” says Cole,

rtist Dave Cole can recall the precise moment he experienced Edward Hopper’s 1939 painting “New York Movie” for the first time. “I came around the corner at the Museum of Modern Art and was struck dumb. It just sucked me in,” the sculptor recalls. Hopper “encapsulated being an American in the modern world better than just about anybody else,” adds Cole, whose own work often explores the complex symbolism of the Stars and Stripes and other U.S. icons. One of the pleasures of viewing art is trying to imagine what sparked the imagination of the represented artists. It can be a single painting, a body of work or a movement, like surrealism, modernism or conceptualism. The work of other artists, past and present, is a potent source. It can even be something the artist reacts against. For art enthusiasts eager to test their influence-spotting talents, New York’s galleries offer near-limitless opportunities. The 38-year-old Cole, who is represented by DODGE Gallery (15 Rivington St., 212.228.5122), can point to Greek myths and multiple influences on his work,

who walked past a Bontecou sculpture daily as a student at Brown University. Robert Rauschenberg was also an influence for artist Jim Lee. But a very different artwork fired the mind of the 43year-old Brooklyn artist, whose quiet abstract canvases hover between paintings and wall constructions, presenting a fresh take on 20th-century modernism. Visiting the University of Notre Dame to see a football game, a 10-year-old Lee and his dad stopped by the Snite Museum of Art, where a 1951 Rauschenberg white painting happened to be on loan. “I remember being very aware of the seam that was present down the middle of the painting. It was that physical vs. the visual that peaked my interest,” says the artist. How paintings connect with physical space and how that, in turn, affects the viewer intrigues the Michigan-born Lee, who shows his work at the Nicelle Beauchene Gallery (327 Broome St., 212.375.8043). In “Behind the Drapes, Under the Draft” he opens up one side of an immense duo-toned canvas with a row of plywood windows, exposing the painting’s raw

scaffolding and turning a flat surface into a sensuous threedimensional curve. But though he draws inspiration from midcentury masters like Kurt Schwitters and Willem de Kooning, Lee describes himself as “the ultimate democrat” when it comes to influences. “Nothing is out of the question, from the paintings of Frans Hals to the graffiti I saw while riding my bike,” he says. Pointing to a depiction of Lake Michigan in a book of vintage maps lying open on the floor of his studio, he remarks, “that blue shape is beautiful.” Paul Binnie is another artist who came upon a lifechanging influence by chance. As a 20-year-old Edinburgh College of Art student summering in Paris, he discovered a small Japanese wood-block print of a beautiful woman while rummaging through a flea market. Fascinated by a type of art he’d never seen, he signed up for a course in ukiyo-e, the stylized Japanese wood-block prints of the 17th to 19th centuries. “I was drawn by the simple elegance and beauty of the images and the lovely soft colors, which I now know were faded,” says the 47-year-old London artIN New YORK | march 2014 |

soar and fall through negative space where there’s no obvious up or down. The Greek myth of Icarus flying too close to the sun, with its conflicting elements of triumph and tragedy, fueled Yerpe’s initial fascination. Mythic tales, in turn, led her to Ovid’s Metamorphoses and the night sky, key inspirations for Stellify, her new series of hyper-detailed humans, rendered in charcoal and grouped in cartwheeling formations shaped as—and named for—constellations.


“Mythology is rife with stories of people being transformed into stars. I’m interested in what that process would mean to a person,” says Yerpe, who grew up stargazing in rural upstate New York. Photographer Eadweard Muybridge’s 19th-century motion studies, which line up multiple images of a single individual, also fire the imagination of the 28-year-old artist, who is represented by the Dillon Gallery (55 W. 25th St., 212.727.8585). “I often see the figures in my drawings as a whole, as if they are coming together to form a single gesture,” Yerpe says.

ist, who spent six years in Japan working with a master printmaker. Binnie’s prints work a contemporary variation on such classic Japanese themes as Kabuki actors, landscapes and geishas, created with traditional techniques, much like those used by Utamaro, Hokusai and Hiroshige (the artists who influenced him most). But unlike past masters who had craftsmen do each process, Binnie, whose work is carried by Scholten Japanese Art (145 W. 58th St., 212.585.0474), designs, carves and prints his own blocks. Many of his kimono-clad beauties sport Western features, and a little more skin, than per tradition, too. Not every artist turns to art for inspiration.

Tokyo childhood. An artist’s daughter, she grew up in a house overflowing with art books—everything from European impressionism to Japanese scroll paintings to Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts comics. “I saw beautiful colors, funny shapes, interesting compositions and lines. I was not aware of the artists, but each book had so many stories for me,” she recalls. What made her choose embroidery as a medium? Blurring the boundaries between fine art and crafts is common in Japan, but Sugimoto’s motive had more practical reasons: It allowed her to keep working during her frequent travels as director of artist Takeshi Murakami’s New York studio.

It’s tempting to point to Pop artist Claes Oldenburg as a guiding influence for 41-year-old Spanish artist Rómulo Celdrán, whose solo show of everyday objects rendered as largerthan-life sculptures and hyperrealistic drawings is currently on view at the Hasted Kraeutler Gallery (537 W. 24th St., 212.627.0006, thru Apr. 12). But while Celdrán offers an appreciative nod to the subject matter and size of Oldenburg’s colossal pencil erasers and safety pins, his aim and approach differ. Where Oldenburg simplified details, Celdrán revels in them, giving a heightened reality to mundane items people see but rarely notice. Every piece displays evidence of the human touch, from a burned-up matchstick to a tooth-marked pencil cap to a tactile clothespin. For Celdrán, the inspirational tap on the shoulder came from 16th- and 17th-century Dutch and Flemish masters—Jan van Eyck, Dave Cole still recalls his first sight of Edward Hopper’s “New York Movie” (far left). His symbolic use of Americana, as in “Money Dress” (left), echoes the painter’s slices of American life.

Rogier van der Weyden and Johannes Vermeer, in particular. “They treated objects with the same respect and love as the human figure, putting a value on the relevance that inhabits every detail,” the artist notes. Making art is always a mysterious process, different for every artist. It’s possible to enjoy a work without knowing what influenced its creator, of course. But the experience can be so much richer when you know.

Discovering a Distinguished District BY SANDRA ISKANDER


ocated in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, Place Vendôme is a grandiose square featuring the original Vendôme Column in the centre, which was erected by Napoleon I to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz. Today the square is encircled by upscale jewellery boutiques including Dior, Van Cleef & Arpels and Chopard. Just a little bit further down from this magnificent square is Palais Garnier, the sumptuous opera house. Inaugurated in 1875, the Palais Garnier was designed by Charles Garnier and was designed in the NeoBaroque style. Boasting 1600 seats, the opera house is not only considered a place of art but also an architectural masterpiece. Not too far from this breathtaking square, located off Place de la Concorde, is Jardin des Tuileries, a magnificent public garden, originally designed by Catherine de Médicis, the Queen consort of France, wife of King Henry II, in 1564 when she had the Tuileries Palace built. The design of the Tuileries now centres on an avenue that extends to the Louvre

museum with the garden featuring a superb collection of statues including 18 works by Maillol as well as works by Coustou and Rodin. The gardens are where many fashion shows are held during the prestigious Paris Fashion Week, while funfairs are organised during the summer for children. Parallel to the gardens on the Right Bank, exuding exclusivity, you will discover rue Saint Honoré and rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, the home to some of the world’s most luxurious fashion brands. It is here you will find the iconic Hermès boutique, the house renowned for exquisite craftsmanship and of course the Kelly and Birkin bags. Standing tall across from Hermes is Cartier, the fine jewellery and watch manufacturer that King Edward VII honoured in 1904 with the Royal warrant of supplier to the Royal Court of England. Colette, Paris’s original multi-brand store is also here. Popular with fashionistas and trendsetters, Colette is the place for limited edition fashion items and eclectic pieces.

your personal concierge™

by Joni Sweet

month (Apr. 5). As for me, I cannot wait to see Alan Cumming again as the emcee in Cabaret at Studio 54 (starting Mar. 21)! What about street musicians? You will often find street performers in Washington Square Park, in the center of Greenwich Village and near New York University. If you take a trip on the subway, especially through 42nd Street, you are bound to hear some innovative rap, funk and rock performers. The pulse is electrifying!

Peter Johnson, Chef Concierge, The Kimberly Hotel, 145 E. 50th St., 212.755.0400

A deluxe guest room at The Kimberly.

The city has such a rich musical history. Where can visitors go to learn more about it? One fantastic place to browse, hear an interesting lecture or listen to music is the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in Lincoln Center. I would also suggest taking a tour uptown in Harlem to discover the world of jazz—the great American music.

The Beat Goes On

From Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday to Jay Z and Alicia Keys, musicians have found a muse in New York City. Concierge Peter Johnson lets visitors know where to discover their own Big Apple rhythm. What makes New York a hot spot for music? Visitors can find just about every type of music there is in NYC, including jazz, blues, rock, pop, country, Broadway, soul, R&B. If I have missed any … well, they’re probably here! I suggest readers speak with the concierge desks of their hotel to fine-tune their experience. Which venues offer the best musical experiences? I would say Lincoln Center, where

visitors can experience opera, the magnificent New York Philharmonic and featured vocalists. Carnegie Hall is one of the most famous musical showcases in the world and a must for visitors to New York City. And, of course, Broadway performances are full of dazzling show tunes!

Carnegie Hall

Big-name acts are always performing in NYC. Who Washington Square Park are the highlights on lineup? It is a pop-music lover’s feast in March. Check out Paul Simon and Sting at Madison Square Garden (Mar. 4 & 6). Our new venue in Brooklyn, Barclays Center, is featuring Miley Cyrus at the beginning of next

Speaking of jazz, where are the best jazz venues in the Big Apple? One of my favorites is Dizzy’s Club CocaCola, part of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Not only is the talent consistently amazing, but so is the ambience, the spectacular view of Central Park and the cuisine. Where can visitors find music to take home with them? Greenwich Village is the place to find CDs and vinyl. Visit Generation Records, Bleecker Street Records and Second Hand Rose Music. If you are in the Flatiron District, stop at Academy Records on W. 18th St. They seem to have everything hidden somewhere! | march 2014 | IN New YORK

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps by Lois Levine

Freedom Towers This Land Is Your Land, a sculptural installaton by Iván Navarro, which was inspired by the immigrant experience, is on view in Madison Square Park through Mar. 30. Three water towers display words in neon lights that are part of the vocabulary of the newcomer; the water towers are also elevated so that visitors can see the lettering inside. The title of the exhibition, penned from the famous Woody Guthrie song, was chosen to symbolize the freedoms offered in the U.S. for the immigrant.

36% of the New York City population was born outside the United States

Old Chinatown

Mixed Review

Manhattan’s Chinatown, an enclave of some 100,000 people, known for its authentic Chinese shops and eateries, was at one time a different neighborhood. In 1859, there were only an estimated 150 Chinese men living in the area, employed as sailors, cooks, candy and cigar vendors, and operators of boarding houses, which catered to Asian sailors.

Although it is now a worldwide draw and hailed by most as a spectacular design vision, when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened in 1959, it was met with mixed opinions. One critic called it a “war between architecture and paintng, in which both come out badly maimed.” And New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Moses said that it looked like ”an inverted oatmeal dish.”

“New York remains what it has always been: a city of ebb and flow, a city of constant shifts of population and economics, a city of virtually no rest. It is harsh, dirty, and dangerous, it is whimsical and fanciful, it is beautiful and soaring.”—Paul Goldberger 84
