Here’s a great tribute to New York City as it suffers through the coronavirus.
We are tough but we are tender, and we fucking love our city though it feels impossible sometimes.
Also, as a musician, it was encouraging to hear her say “This took me a whole day to learn.” 🤷🏻♂️
Here’s a fun idea for a trip…
Why not go see some famous recording studios?
a top 10 list of famous studios worldwide, but you can add any studio you want. I’d see Zep’s Bron-Yr-Aur or Sunset Sound Studio, or U2’s Windmill Lane Studio.
Cool-looking German restaurant for next time I’m in New York City.
Next time you’re in
NYC, why not go see an opera? The tickets are surprisingly affordable (from $30). And even if you’re not an opera fan, this is a unique and interesting experience.
The Metropolitan Opera (NYC)
Funnily enough, this tip came as a recommendation from
Andy Ihnatko on a tech podcast. Listen in at this spot for more inspiration about the opera. 🤷🏻♂️

This may be the weirdest and most fun place in NYC (that I know of). I’m definitely going back if I ever get the chance.
Another cool thing to see next time I’m in NYC!
