Lower Manhattan Cultural Council--Manhattan, New York
New York City is vibrant--a mecca of culture and the arts. Upon my first work-day in Manhattan, I was honored to be invited to the annual LMCC dinner, a night recognizing artists and innovative businesses of lower Manhattan. Over 600 professionals and art enthusiasts from the business, civic, and cultural sectors gathered under a common cause of transforming the district into a thriving cultural center. What a perfect introduction to my New York--a night of performance and talk of urban planning! I think I'm going to like it here.
