Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.
We made it as easy as 1-2-3.
Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
For September we are going to try a different format – “Top 10 Corona Culture” – updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times or NYC related visual info (Instagram and YouTube) or all the NYC news you need to start your day.
We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here.

Virtual Culture This Weekend
Quarantine may have restricted our movement, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t live culture still out there. We’ve got some weekend livestreams to keep you informed and entertained—across talks, lectures, and performances (with a real life event thrown in as well). (ThoughtGallery)
