Lifting you out of a New York City funk
The stuff? The artful, ingenious, and often unpredictable ways we humans and the city interact, negotiate, make ourselves heard, create value, carve out a little space and comfort, and in so doing impact one another in public space. I call this an Aesthetics of the City.
So here’s an example. The Blue Funk Orchestra. I caught them at West 4th Street Station a while back. Watching and listening to them, my funk lifted a little bit. Enough to help me move forward into the rest of my day with renewed vigor. I think they’ll lift your spirits, too. The Smurf hat alone is worth the watch.
