Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world.

Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Discovered in France only just a year ago, Fishbach’s voice is one of surprise and sensuality, which instantly sets itself apart from the norm. Fishbach is from Charleville-Mézières (a small town in the east of France) and her voice goes from a soft and almost gentle whisper to a rugged and loud chant, deep and incantatory. Onstage, she adopts a charismatic and androgyne figure, a pop character between Kate Bush and Ian Curtis.
