The DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE is a intimate off-Broadway venue that features performances of all types nightly. Established in 1950, the legendary Duplex Cabaret Theatre is the cornerstone club in Greenwich Village, the cradle of New York City cabaret. Originally under the direction of Tony Award winning actor Hal Holbrook, the club has built its reputation as a dynamic platform for new and emerging talent, performers seeking to launch their career and hone their craft. Luminaries such as Woody Allen, Joan Rivers, and Barbra Streisand are among the incredible talent who graced our stage early on in their careers. Continuing this time-honored tradition, we attract and work with the best and brightest up-and-coming composers, singers, and comedians, as well as established Broadway professionals and award-winning recording artists. Our historic Off-Broadway Black Box theatre is the quintessential New York performance space.
Happy Earth Day!
What better way to celebrate Earth Day then to talk about American Trash! I don't know what compelled me, but a few months ago I started taking pictures of full trash cans that I would see. I wasn't crazy obsessed about it or anything, but my friends (& strangers) have definitely looked at me like I'm a touch cray cray.
I started to wonder how much trash we produced in the United States. I asked my smart friend Google & she said "Every year, the United States generates approximately 230 million tons of "trash"--about 4.6 pounds per person per day. Less than one-quarter of it is recycled; the rest is incinerated or buried in landfills."
Sometimes I'm too lazy to recycle & I'm not exactly sure what is recyclable to be honest. I was in elementary school when they taught me those specifics.
Luckily, I watched Captain Planet so I remember "Recycle, Reduce, Reuse & close the loop"
I asked Google what I can recycle & she said:
So now I kind of get it.
Good thing there are people like this woman I saw in the East Village! There are men & women all over the city collecting recyclable items to earn some cash. I think they should get a ton of money. With my luck, I would catch scarlet fever reaching into some of those trash cans.
I was really inspired by Lewis Howes episode of "The School of Greatness" with Lauren Singer "The Zero-Waste Guide to a Simple Life"
I don't know that I'll get down to zero-waste anytime soon, I can hardly lose my last 10 vanity pounds. But I'm definitely going to try. Hope you will too. :)
Happy Earth day to everyone, but especially to whoever made this!
The Whitney Museum of American Art – known informally as the "Whitney" – is an art museum located in Manhattan. It was founded in 1931 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875–1942), a wealthy and prominent American socialite and art patron after whom the museum is named.
The Whitney Museum of American Art
"Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney's building in the Meatpacking District vastly increases the Museum’s exhibition and programming space, offering the most expansive display ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art."
New York City is a treasure trove of street art. The art form gained prominence in the early 1980s and since then, visual artists from all over the world come to New York to create urban masterpieces. Here some of my favorites from the five boroughs:
