PLACES: Art is alive

Two weeks ago, Ashley Hsu and I went to the Metropolitan Opera House to see American Ballet Theatre's production, Cinderella, with Julie Kent (ballerina in Center Stage!) as the principal dancer. Although it was amazing to see a forty-year-old dancer perform so beautifully, I am not ashamed to say that my exploration of the Lincoln Center prior to the performance was better than the ballet itself.  I mean... how much better is this than Times Square? (Answer: 10 million times better!)

Art is everywhere!

After Sheep's Meadow in Central Park, this is probably my second favorite place in New York City.  I don't know if I've ever seen performance art so large and alive.
