Why I like New York

Look what the Rockefeller Foundation is funding:

Urban Omnibus: a Broadband Channel for Architecture, Infrastructure and Environment in New York City.

“To bring together the most innovative ideas about the future of the urban landscape in New York City.” Produced by The Architectural League of New York.

Others, among the first recipients of the new NYC Cultural Innovation Fund:

– The Bronx Museum of the Arts…for Phase II Capital Master Plan and Design, for an expansion of the museum including the development of a moderate income residential tower using principles of green building design

– The Civilians…for Development and Brooklyn Neighborhoods, a two-year theater lab exploring the Atlantic Yards Project

– Friends of the High Line with Creative Time and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation…to create a new, large-scale public art commissioning program for the High Line’s Chelsea Market Tunnel

– Museum of Chinese in America…for The Chinese American Experience, a comprehensive historical interactive exhibition to mark the debut of its new museum in Chinatown

– Museum of the Moving Image…for Massively Multiplayer: the Art of Online Virtual Worlds, to bring virtual space into the physical realm in a new technologically-advanced exhibition gallery

Maybe you next year? The sixteen recipients were selected from a pool of more than 600 organizations that submitted proposals earlier this year through the Rockefeller Foundation’s website.
