World-Famous Cultural Institutions

"A central irony of living in New York is that your proximity to world-famous cultural institutions is largely nullified by how arduous it is to actually get inside them. I’d often joke that there must be a German word for that particular New York experience whereby the moment you hear about some worthwhile attraction — the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' exhibit at the Met, 'Hamilton' at the Public Theater (let alone on Broadway) — you simultaneously understand that your chances of experiencing it have essentially vanished."
Adam Sternbergh, The New York Times
