The Art that is New York City

New York City IS Art

The Arts in New York City? Why, New York City is Art!

The “Arts” aren’t dead relics that simply reside in quiet museums throughout the city – it’s the city itself.  It’s a city which continues to thrive culturally and aesthetically despite the sterile, systematic and pragmatic “collection of blocks” which were superimposed across it’s virgin soil countless generations ago. The City is an art work in itself, it’s implicit personalities, and explicit aesthetics breathing life into land that was designed to generate cold, hard cash. It takes new meaning through the eyes of each of it’s visitors, inspires it’s admirers and gives a narrative of the past and even predictions of the future for those who study it.


  1. I think art is a very subjective thing. What one person might see as beautiful and inspiring could be dull and extremely tedious to another. But, that is what separates art and Great Art. Great Art appeals to a wider audience, kicking the cogs and gears in our brains into action and forcing us to experience something remarkable.

    But then again, what do I know? I’m not an art critic.
