23 Aug Talk of the Town/the New Yorker
My first-ever piece in The New Yorker is a Talk of the Town about a dance performance that took place at the Untermyer Gardens, formal gardens in Yonkers, New York, on the Hudson River. The performance was something that the New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham wanted to see happen. He had discovered the gardens while on assignment and became convinced that Tom Gold Dance needed to stage a performance there. Sadly this didn’t happen in his lifetime. But when it did happen, it was pretty magical and also made for a very sweet story that you can read here.
