Art at Bay (St. George, Staten Island)

皆さんは、スタテン島が実は小島などではなく、マンハッタンよりもずっと大きな島である事をご存知ですか?ええ確かに、あの誰もが目にする地下鉄マップを見ると小さな島になってるし、住人も少ないし、マンハッタンのように刺激的なところも少ないです。でも、ここにも、NYC のほかのエリアと同様、とてもたくさんのアーティストが住でいるのです。先週の土曜日に由喜さんと私はスタテン島でのアート展示会のオープニングレセプション(正確には準備しているところ)へお邪魔してきました。スタテン島フェリーからほんの1ブロックだけBay Street の方へ進んだところにある新しいギャラリーです。まだご覧になってない方、ぜひともどうぞ!スタテン島のアーティストも気合が入ってますよ!
Did you know that Staten Island is not a small island? Actually much bigger than Manhattan!! although it looks very very small in NYC subway map which is probably the most popular map to the people who visit or live in NYC.
Well, it is true that there are much less people live in Staten Island and I admit that there are not so many hot spots like Manhattan, but let me tell you this, as same as the other boroughs, a lot of artists live in Staten Island, too. Yuuki and I went to the opening reception "Art at Bay" last Saturday night. It is held at just one block away from Staten Island Ferry Terminal on Bay St. If you haven't visited there yet, please go and find out the wonderfulness of Staten Island artists! It is absolutely inspiring!
