For a writer, artist, or performer, there’s no grater stage then this fabulous city. Yes, we’re gritty, worn around edges, perhaps even a bit tarnished, and there are certainly more pristine, modern and perhaps even more attractive cities to live in.
However when it comes to creativity and energy there’s no city on planet earth the can compare with this painted lady.
What other city can boast that the majority of its population are “transplanted New Yorkers” coming from other parts of the country, indeed other parts of the world, for the privilege of being called “New Yorker’s”.
There are over 170 new live productions in theater a week, both off and on Broadway. Hundreds of creative workshops, and where else can you wake up in the wee hours of the morning, walk a few blocks and have an incredible meal, believe me this city is not for everyone, however I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else on earth…I’m in love with this old lady.
