Art! So much art. So many different kinds of art. And so much of it for free! In New York City, I have seen every mode of self-expression, have been to so many museums, and theaters, and galleries, and warehouses, and homes, and singalongs, and art walks, and “happenings”; I’ve probably forgotten more shows than some people have had hot dinners. I’ve also done my share of self-expression (mainly improv, but I’ve sung and acted also) on stages across the city with so many terrifically talented people. There will always be those who come here to develop their art, and that will always keep the city’s cultural scene fresh. Even in the last Gilded Age of the 1890s, there were artists and performers in their garrets following their muses, and I simply don’t see that changing anytime soon.
