The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council picked a beautiful week for its annual summer gift to New York – the River to River Festival: over 30 dance, music, and arts projects featured in dozens of downtown locations. The festival showcased not only 90+ artists, but the city itself. Although downtown is not entirely rebuilt since the devastation of 9/11, it’s well on its way, and River to River creates as many opportunities to watch the fascinating cityscape as the beautifully curated art. The combination is quite a feast.
