Relics and Traditions

One of the reasons I love New York so much is how much history we have here. Growing up in San Diego we got a little bit of history, but history usually was chronicled from 1920 onward. Not so in New York City. And the kind of history is also so different, particularly cultural history, which even after 1920 is lush and inspiring.

I recently read this article about the renovations at Carnegie Hall and how one of the tenants in the upper floors refuses to give up her apartment which she has lived in for over 50 years. She is a photographer, and has photographed the likes of Yul Brenner, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Henry Fonda, and Paul Newman. She raised her family in that studio, has done all of her photography work out of there... It’s simply amazing.

I absolutely love this city...
