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. First of all, some very important information:
“There are multiple websites, disappearing slots and even attempts to game the system. Here’s our guide to what you have to do to get a dose in your arm.”
For February 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.
Today it’s NYC Weekend Corona Culture (Sat). NEW STUFF!
Art & Museums / This ‘House’ Has Stories to Tell
KIDS / Sit Back and Watch (or Get Up and Dance)
Jazz / Mixing More Than Notes
Dance / An Anniversary That Keeps Giving
Pop & Rock / Scrolling Through Pages From the Past
“Our critics and writers have selected noteworthy cultural events to experience virtually and outdoors in New York City.” (NYT)
“Medrie MacPhee’s paintings; Jeanne Reynal’s mosaics; Angela Dufresne’s kinetic works; and Joaquín Orellana’s sonic sculptures.”
“Moynihan Train Hall is open and in this humble Chief Experience Officer‘s opinion, it is good. The renderings we saw for years became a reality on New Years Day when the spacious 255,000-square foot hall was opened to the public. The Art Deco clock was the first welcome surprise. The timepiece, designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects, was not on an any of the original renderings but now hangs as an homage to the concourse clock in the old Penn station and the beloved opaline-faced clock in Grand Central Terminal. Train travelers finally have a clear and definable meeting spot on the west side.”==============================================================================
“Indoor dining in New York City will be expanded to allow bars and restaurants to seat patrons at 35% capacity on Feb. 26 — marking a 10% increase since inside seating resumed on Feb. 12, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Friday. “=============================================================================
“In 1956, when this kosher Jewish delicatessen first opened on Queens Boulevard, it was called Pastrami King, and for nearly 40 years the place fed the courthouse crowd out there in Kew Gardens. In 1998, facing a steep decline in business, the King decamped to the Upper East Side, and, in honor the new owners’ family matriarch, was renamed Pastrami Queen.
Now Pastrami Queen has crossed the park, opening their second location on West 72nd Street in the space that Fine and Schapiro held since 1927, before that venerable institution closed for good when the pandemic hit in March.”
“A Tyshawn Sorey premiere and lots of Kurt Weill from Berlin are among the highlights.”
It’s time to (finally) say goodbye to 2020, and HELLO to 2021.
Though of a course a new year won’t fix everything, it definitely feels like the right time to have a fresh start.
One thing that gets us super excited is making a list of all the activities we want to take part in the new year — and luckily, we’re in the best place to do that: NYC! We also asked our Instagram followers what was on their 2021 bucket lists, and got even more ideas from that.
