New York in 100 Words with Laure Watrin
A city/world, the capital of globalization, a film set, a vertical city, an urban laboratory, a metropolis that contains all superlatives…When one evokes the Big Apple, a thousand images come to mind. Here are 100 words –– from “Community” to “Water Towers” to “Hip-Hop” to “Occupy Wall Street” to “Air Conditioning” to “Rats” to “Skyscraper” to “Urban Farms” to “Pizza” to “Robert Moses” to “The Bronx” to “Soho” –– that sketch out a portrait of a city that is at the same time familiar and exotic, but which even when we think we know it never stops to reinvent itself!
Join Laure Watrin as she signs her visual lexicon that captures the very soul of this beloved city!
