"I obviously loved OPA, but I think sometimes we couldn't do everything we dreamed about, or present the shows we always wanted to do, because of money limits, or things like that. With Baldwin Wallace, I think we'll be able to do that now, which is amazing."

Parents and even teachers at a Brooklyn performing arts school were shocked to learn Friday that the school can no longer audition prospective students under the district’s new diversity plan. Families at the New Voices School of Academic and Creative Arts in Sunset Park were blindsided by the news a day after Mayor Bill de Blasio approved a scheme to scrap admissions standards at all middle schools in District 15. “I had no idea this was happening. I’m going to have to go to a meeting, call someone,” said longtime district resident Eddie Rosario, 57, who has a seventh-grader at the school and another daughter hoping to attend next year. “My other daughter wants to go here, too. If they’re doing away with auditions … I’m going to have to talk to someone. What’s next? Are they changing the process at the arts high schools, too?” Until now, New Voices — the only performing arts middle school in the Park Slope-to-Sunset … [Read more...] about Diversity plan mayhem: Arts school can’t audition applicants anymore

The 52 Places Traveler The two German cities made the 52 Places list because of their arts offerings, but the Traveler found himself pulled in other directions. Sept. 24, 2019 Our columnist, Sebastian Modak, is visiting each destination on our 52 Places to Go in 2019 list. His last dispatch was from Orcas Island in Washington, where he confronted the loneliness of a solo trip around the world. In the final years of World War II, about 90 percent of Munich’s Altstadt, or Old Town, was reduced to rubble by Allied bombers. In the years that followed, using an extensive archive of prewar photographs, the city worked to rebuild it stone by stone, to restore as much as possible of its prewar grandeur. About 280 miles north, a much smaller city, Dessau, was also similarly destroyed during a bombing raid in March 1945. Its reconstruction took a different form: the sterile apartment blocks that became emblematic of the German Democratic Republic, or East Germany.
