New York’s City Hall was on view during Open House NY weekend. Completed in 1812, it is the oldest still-used city hall in the U.S.
This is the Color Factory in NYC, the successor to the wildly popular Color Factory in San Francisco.
I was in NY on the first weekend of NY Fashion Week. These photos are from the area around Spring Studios, the main location of the shows. It was raining much of the time.
The Let Go is an environment created by Nick Cave in the vast space in the Park Avenue Armory. The space is mainly dark, with some lights forming dance areas as circles or a strip for line dancing, and there are colored tinsel strips that move to enfold various dance spaces. All of the lights, tinsel, and dance areas change every few minutes. The attendees come to dance and are able to dance anywhere they want.
Some new murals in NYC:

On the Bowery Wall, a new mural by Tristan Eaton is being installed, replacing the Banksy mural from earlier this spring.
I saw the beginning of the March on the west side, at 7th and Greenwich. I then walked around the south side of the March, where many streets were blocked off, and got back near the March on the east side of Fifth Avenue, walking northward from Washington Square to the end of the March past 28th St.
A couple of hours later, I went to the west side of Fifth Avenue, starting at 28th St. and walking south. At this point, the March had been going on for 6 hours, and the crowds had thinned a little but were still large.
