It is time to say goodbye to NYC.
Some of you have been wondering exactly how many shows and events I’ve attended during our stay in New York.
- I will have seen Broadway and off-Broadway shows. These include dramas, musicals, and dance. I’ve enjoyed every one of the shows, except for one. You can see a full list of my 20 ratings here.
- I’ve been to Madison Square Garden to see Billy Joel.
- We’ve been to Carnegie Hall to see an intimate concert in the presence of conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin in the Weill Room of Carnegie Hall.
- We’ve been to the Lincoln Center to see the opera Tosca.
- We went to two jazz performances. Jazz at Dizzy’s was such a treat.
- I have been to at least a half dozen lifetime beings of daytime shows and evening shows. The View has been my favourite.
- I’ve also attended several live presentations involving book readings with various celebrities at Symphony Space
