Led by connoisseur of bold creativity Alan Cohen, this illuminating art tour shows how New York expresses itself.
NYC’s public artworks hold a mirror up to the city, directly addressing the human experience: together, they commemorate, challenge, disrupt and inspire. Native New Yorker and lover of large-scale artwork Cohen plots a course through the Financial District’s most creative corners to show that often art initiates life.
Born in Brooklyn and resident in Manhattan, Alan Cohen is himself enmeshed in NYC’s history. His PhD in psychology and professorial career have been enhanced by pavement pounding, unearthing a trove of native tales and inspiring his enduring fascination with local heroes and villains. Cohen is an official guide at the Central Park Conservancy, docent at the Museum of the City of New York and a licensed NYC sightseeing guide: a mile in his shoes is truly half a millennium in history.
Down to a fine art: see soaring sculptures and immersive installations liven up the Financial District
