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 – it is not one or another of these things but all of them, all at once, and to fail to accept this paradox is to deny the reality of city existence.
From the chorus lines of Broadway down to the grungy cabarets of the Village, it’s practically impossible to swing a dance belt without hitting a comedy club, jazz lounge or off beat theater. And beyond the scope of live acts lurks an electric world of art and artifact housed in world-class museums of encyclopedic proportions and up-and-coming galleries showcasing relevant creators. So set your expectations as high as the skyscrapers and you’ll quickly uncover myriad brilliant moments of sensory overload far beyond the twinkling lights of NYC’s poster child, Times Square.
