Really sad news, and there is more to say about New York City decaying rapidly on an international cultural perspective. Maybe I missed something, but as a frequent tourist in the past, I must say that NYC currently gives a quite run down impression: I´m planning to go to NYC for a week starting May 18: There is NO opera, NO classical concert of any significance, NO rock concert (apart from John Bonamassas long sold out concerts on the evening that I shall arrive from Europe), NO event of significance, NO fun no more. Madison Square garden has ONE concert, no, ONE EVENT scheduled in the whole month of May. Broadway theatres? The same picture. Fleet week - will most probably be cancelled. Any discussion about this cancellation? Nope. The overall frustrating experience for us European tourists is, I´m afraid to say: The thrill is ultimately gone.
Sad news: 92YTribeca will close this summer
The arts and entertainment venue announces it will shutter after five years of concerts, talks, screenings and events.
