In this edi­tion, we fea­ture a slice of the Big Ap­ple via two iconic ar­eas. Our New York es­capade be­gins on Broad­way, one of the most fa­mous av­enues in the world. It lends its name to the theatre dis­trict it in­ter­sects, but our in­ter­est is fur­ther north along the 24 km stretch of road that dates as far back as the Pre-Columbian era. Broad­way has much more to of­fer than il­lu­mi­nated fa­cades and ma­jes­tic the­atres as the north­ern sec­tion boasts a wealth of ar­chi­tec­tural de­lights.

Then, we cross the East River to Brook­lyn. This is the most pop­u­lated area of the city, and for a long time ig­nored by vis­i­tors and in­hab­i­tants alike. Now, how­ever, fol­low­ing twenty years of change, New-York­ers and tourists alike are en­joy­ing a vi­brant area full of cul­ture and com­merce. The Brook­lyn that di­rec­tor Spike Lee cel­e­brates in his films is fast be­com­ing a Brook­lyn of deluxe ho­tels, start up busi­nesses, and “hip­ster” cul­ture. And this di­verse dis­trict is more than ever a source of in­spi­ra­tion for artists. The neigh­bour­hood of Bush­wick is a ver­i­ta­ble open air gallery of street art by artists from all over the world. TV se­ries are now shot on the roof-ter­race of the Wil­liam Vale Ho­tel. Cos­mopoli­tan and hip, Brook­lyn is now the must see area of New York…and the place to be seen.

Happy Read­ing!
