Thanks once more to the BroadsheetDAILY and ace feature writer Mathew Fenton for the fascinating, revealing, informative story of the new location of the Bronx Museum of Art satellite annex at the beautifully restored landmark building at 80 White Street, continuing the migration downtown of cultural development, availability, along with the commercial, going on in Manhattan.
The ability to turn an important news item into an informative, interesting narrative feature combining Tribeca history with insight and pictorial splendor about the incubation of art below Canal street was a pleasure to read in a world inexorably making simplistic powerful images the text and copy the context.
The revelation of inspired and inspiring individuals who gave their generous personal and physical resources to encourage the creativity and exhibition of the arts as Art Space and Art In General (visited often) and other local venues not mentioned was encouragingly important recognizing that people sharing the humanity of the arts is the only healthy influential balance against pervasive, self-interest everywhere.
When I moved into Tribeca twenty-five years ago from Brooklyn to be closer to the exciting, cultural cornucopia of Manhattan (and avoid using subway MTA tokens by the ten pack), I never realized (with growing delight) that so much of the uptown scene would move downtown to my ‘hood.
