FutureStarrNyc to los angeles
I’m going to NYC for the next week, wrote one of our interns in an email to the whole company. That’s great and all, but what about me, you ask? I’m going to come in late Thursday, so if there’s anything you need me on, I’ll be up to speed. And then I’ll be back in LA on Monday!

THINGS TO DO Museums might be closed, but beaches, parks and hiking trails are all open as Los Angeles embraces the outdoors. Take a hike through Griffith Park to the iconic Hollywood sign (free) or join a guided walk through Koreatown or Hollywood with DTLA Walking Tours ($25). The exhibitions at the La Brea Tar Pits are closed, but visitors can visit the grounds and see the paleontologists at work excavating ice age fossils (timed tickets required, from $6). Next door, snap a selfie in front of the “Urban Light” installation of 202 antique cast-iron street lamps outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. While the traffic is relatively light, tour Los Angeles’s vibrant outdoor art scene, including the new murals devoted to the Lakers star Kobe Bryant. Splurge in every way, including athletic, on the six-hour “L.A. in a Day” 32-mile bike tour with Bikes and Hikes L.A. ($162, including bikes). (Source: www.nytimes.com)
One television producer, who asked that his name not be used, tells THR that he also recently bought a larger place in the city, after getting his first pied-à-terre in New York in 2017. “I think in general people in L.A. who are in Hollywood are looking for second places and New York is definitely on the list,” he says. “It’s almost like a cultural recharge. When you’re making these shows and these movies, you’re always trying to mimic some version of real-life and I think it’s easier to do it in New York than in Los Angeles, where, especially if you are working in the business, you are kind of in a bubble. In New York, you find other groups.”
A Brit in New York by way of Australia, I'm a writer and photographer with a taste for world wandering. I left the rainy shores of England some nine years ago for a year long, round-the-world backpacking adventure where I met my soul mate at a noodle stand in Bali and never really looked back. My now-husband and l are currently at home on the road in La Guaguita, a (sometimes functional) 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia camper on a road trip across America in search of the interesting people & off-beat places that inspire us to get out and see the world. These Foreign Lands is a home for those stories and recommendations of offbeat locales. It is a tale of learning to cherish the intangible and lead a richer life through the discovery of hidden gems, beautiful places and new faces. - Website (Source: www.venuereport.com)
