New York. La rinascita di Lower Manhattan

New York. La rinascita di Lower Manhattan | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

Lower Manhattan è il cuore del mondo finanziario, con Wall Street e la borsa e con impiegati e uomini d’affari in giacca e cravatta che percorrono freneticamente su e giù le sue strade. Negli ultimi dieci anni i suoi quartieri, Financial District, Battery Park e South Street Seaport, con tutta l’area lungo il porto di New York, hanno subito una vera rinascita, con la crescita di bar, ristoranti e locali. La voglia di nuovo si respira anche nell’atmosfera di alberghi cool e all’ultima moda come il W New York Downtown, del gruppo Starwood, che ha aperto lo scorso anno e che è già divenuto un incontro glamour, con il suo arredamento all’ultimo design e con il suo ristorante BTL, bar & grill, di cucina americana contemporanea, e il suo bar Living Room Bar & Terrace, ideale per un cocktail (si consiglia un Cosmopolitan, lo stesso prediletto dalle ragazze di “Sex and the City”). Un altro indirizzo da non perdere è l’Andaz Wall Street, della catena Hyatt, in stile contemporaneo e minimal-chic, arricchito da tocchi di colore e punto “fitness” anche della City, con palestra e spa. Molto quotato è pure il suo ristorante Wall & Water.

Tra i ristoranti in questa zona di New York da non perdere ci sono invece il Fraunces Tavern, un locale storico dove è passato perfino George Washington, con gastronomia americana. Il ristorante è collegato alla birreria Porterhouse Brewing Company, dove degustare diversi tipi di birra e piatti veloci come polpette di granchio e una varietà di hamburger. Per qualcosa di raffinato l’indirizzo giusto è SHO Shaun Hergatt, in cui lo chef è uno specialista della cucina fusion e combina piatti asiatici e francesi con tocchi internazionali, con un mix di ingredienti da Stati Uniti, Asia e addirittura Australia. Per un brunch domenicale all’ultima moda si consiglia invece Red, al South Street Seaport, dove si possono provare colazioni di tutte le nazionalità, a base di uova e bacon, o anche con salmone, fajitas e altre varietà. Nella zona si trovano diversi edifici storici, ristoranti e locali, oltre al museo sulla storia navale della città, il Seaport Museum New York.

Come novità per lo shopping, oltre al sempre “evergreen” Century 21 (www.c21stores.com), il più grande outlet dove si acquistano abbigliamento e accessori di famosi designer a prezzi supereconomici, ha da poco aperto la boutique di Hermès a Wall Street, a pochi passi da quella di Tiffany & Co., la versione Downtown della celebre gioielleria. Un “must” per gli appassionati di tecnologia è invece il J&R Music and Computer World.

Green Day's Intimate Halloween Show at Webster Hall Studio [10/27/11]

Green Day's Intimate Halloween Show at Webster Hall Studio [10/27/11] | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

It’s shortly after 3 am, and, to be honest, we are still high from seeing Green Day rock the Studio at Webster Hall. The surprise show was announced mere hours before tickets went on sale Wednesday afternoon, and quickly sold out. In minutes. The show was promoted as a Halloween extravaganza, and did not disappoint in the least.

There’s just too much to say about the two-hour performance. We could delve into the band costumes, with Billie Joe Armstrong as a Beetlejuiced-Jack Skellington and Tre Cool as a pink fairy. Or the amazing show opener, in which Billie Joe mashed up a few hits (“Basket Case,” “Time of Your Life”) to a super-cool arrangement of “Monster Mash.” Or we could also ramble on about how the Bay Area rockers covered Elvis’ “Blue Moon of Kentucky” and the Misfits’ “Hybrid Moments” three (count ‘em) times in the first set.

But, screw it, we’d rather focus on the intimate energy of the room, where a few hundred die-hard fans squeezed tight amidst sweat and terrible odor. Ah, the fragrance of punk! It was like being fifteen again and back at an all ages punk show. Costumed crowd surfers aplenty vaulted themselves to the stage, bopped with the band and then dove back in. Even a sauced-up Billy Joe took his turn diving into the pool of hands, but not before swinging from the building infrastructure. There wasn’t much action from the security people until the second act when things really started to heat up.

We could sense that after the first act of mainly newer material, the audience craved the old standards. That’s when the moshing broke out. The crowd ebbed and flowed with the rhythmic tide of power chords from Dookie favorites like “She” and “Welcome to Paradise,” as well as “Geek Stink Breath,” “2,000 Light Years Away,” and “Paper Lanterns.”

“Going To Pasalacqua” was the penultimate track of the evening before the Monster Mashup returned to close out the night.

Entusiasta il patron di Eataly Oscar Farinetti : “Siamo felicissimi di ospitare a Eataly per il secondo anno consecutivo IDENTITA NEW YORK iniziativa che si sposa perfettamente con l’essenza della nostra realtà.

Jay Fine's "The End of Manhattan" - Antonio Petracca's "10" at the Kim Foster Gallery

Jay Fine's "The End of Manhattan" - Antonio Petracca's "10" at the Kim Foster Gallery | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

September 8 - October 15, 2011

Antonio Petracca’s new exhibition 10 is a journey that started with 9/11. Like many others, 9/11 had a direct and profound effect on the artist. Displaced and living in a hotel, Petracca felt compelled to begin a new series of paintings that responded to this horrific event. In September 2002, this work was exhibited at the Kim Foster Gallery. His mission was to depict the destruction, the sense of great loss and, more importantly, the can-do spirit of rebuilding and renewal that most New Yorkers felt at the time.

Unfortunately, some populations became the object of fear and bias. This triggered mixed emotions in the artist. Memories of prejudice against Italian Americans in his childhood neighborhood of Rochester resurfaced. The stereotypical jokes heard constantly throughout his life, the Sopranos, and the Mafia docudramas finally gave him the impetus to handle these issues in his art. Petracca appropriated Italian masterpieces and portraits of Italian American celebrities, combining them with quotes from the news, the internet, and historical material. Other work depicted ancient Pompeian frescos tagged with mob movie slang and stereotypical one-liners.

His later work on identity mined similar territory, but his focus was broader. He used the theatrical to investigate how the use of color and identification with cultural and architectural landmarks could help or hinder the formulation of one’s identity. In Three Brothers, Petracca took a familial look into generalizations based on ethnic and social preconceptions.

With the 10th anniversary upon us, Petracca revisits the place where his journey began. The new work depicts the rebuilding that is now visible at Ground Zero. This sense of finally moving forward is articulated in WT Corner V, in which two new buildings emerge victoriously with only a partial reflection of a crane. The work is best expressed as the tension between the representation of a site and the abstraction that evolves in the manner in which it is cropped to focus our attention on the relevant information. For years, we have been tantalized by the construction going on elsewhere in the City. On this 10th anniversary, it appears that the architectural design plans that have been plastered around the area of Ground Zero are becoming realized.

Antonio Petracca had a solo exhibition at the Italian American Museum in NYC and the Garibaldi Meucci Museum. He has been awarded several grants and special projects including an MTA mural commission. His artwork is in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, George Eastman House, and the National September 11 Memorial and museum.

The Kim Foster Gallery is pleased to present The End of Manhattan, an exhibition of photographs by Jay Fine, which focuses on Lower Manhattan.

In 2003, Fine moved to Battery Park City and began an ongoing project to document his surroundings. Perched forty stories above the City, he could find drama or news by looking out his window. Everything from dramatic electrical storms (NY Harbor 9/22/10), to the errant use of Air Force One (Photo Op 2009), or the frightening echo of a mushroom cloud (Bayonne, NJ Monday Morning) were fodder for his camera.

He focused on the daily comings and goings of NY Harbor, recording the sublime beauty and dramatic weather before him. On each anniversary of 9/11, he would aim his lens to the sky to capture the memorial lights as they rose into the clouds. Whether shooting aerial landscapes from his window or photographing from the street, his goal was always to capture the changing environment of Lower Manhattan after 9/11.

Jay Fine’s photographs have appeared in newspapers, magazines, websites, and television including New York Daily News, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, BBC, The Sun, The Daily Mirror, Popular Photography Magazine, ShortList Magazine, La Stampa (Italy), La Repubblica (Italy), Aftenposten (Norway), as well as NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. His photo of NY Harbor 9/22/10 appears in the August 2011 issue of National Geographic Magazine.

New York protagonista al New York Film Festival

New York protagonista al New York Film Festival | New York I Love You™ | Scoop.it

A NY il cinema è nato (nei Kaufman Astoria Studios), a NY il cinema si studia (alla Tish e alla NYFA), si respira (nell’aria, tra le streets e le avenue), si vive (nei set e per strada) e si vede, nei vari festival. Tra i più prestigiosi, c’è il New York Film Festival, che si tiene tutti gli anni nel periodo di Ottobre nel cuore artistico dell’Upper West Side: il Lincoln Center. E l’edizione 2011 del NYFF sembra essere stata concepita proprio per rendere un omaggio ulteriore alla città, ai suoi registi e al suo cinema.

Si va dal genio sregolato di Abel Ferrara (nativo del Bronx) e del suo Last day on earth, apocalissi ambientata proprio a NY, in cui la città e i suoi abitanti vengono messi a dura prova dall’imminente estinzione; alla riflessione intima e profonda di Joseph Cedar, che con Footnote -vincitore del premio come migliore script a Cannes- racconta di Israele, la terra d’origine dei suoi avi. Dalla Grande Mela viene anche l’emergente Sean Durkin, graduate della NYU Tish, che al NYFF ha presentato -insieme agli ex compagni di scuola ora trasformati in produttori Josh Mond e Antonio Campos (anche loro 100% newyorkers)- il controverso (ma molto apprezzato) Martha Marcy May Marlene, storia di una giovane ragazza (Elizabeth Olsen -sorella minore di Ashley e Mary Kate) che scappa da un culto, completamente girato nella zona di upstate New York e già presentato con successo a Cannes e al Sundance.

Infine, attorno a NY ruotano due attesissimi special screening: la proiezione di I royal Tenenbaums di Anderson - sicuramente uno tra i ritratti cinematografici della città più belli degli ultimi anni- che verrà fatta in occasione del suo decimo anniversario (il 13 ottobre alle 8.30 pm all’Alice Tully Hall) e quella di Vito (il 14 ottobre alle 6.00 pm al Walter Read Theatre), documentario prodotto da HBO e diretto da Jeffrey Shwarz, che ripercorre la storia, gli amori e le lotte di Vito Russo, celebre attivista per i diritti degli omosessuali nato a New York, tra i primi promotori della cultura gay negli Stati Uniti.

Insomma, al New York Film Festival, New York non è solo la sede del festival, ma anzi uno dei suoi protagonisti più apprezzati. Perchè al cinema New York ha saputo dare location, attori, registi e storie, come mai nessuna altra città al mondo.
