Have you ever seen a performance or work of art and wished you could sit down and talk to the person who made it? I mean, really talk to them. I'm Helga Davis and through a partnership with the Park Avenue Armory. I'm having those conversations with extraordinary people like visual artist Nick Cave actress and Disability advocate merrily talking to none and author Jason Reynolds. Join me for Helga. The Armory Conversations all this week at nine PM on W N. Y C. You're listening to marketplace on W. N. Might see in the seven o'clock hour of all things considered. Former U. S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta talks about the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan as the deadline approaches. That story, and more than the seven o'clock hour of all things considered. Stay tuned. This is marketplace. I'm remark race. We've been talking about infrastructure pretty much all week. But let's step away from that for a moment to talk about another kind of infrastructure. One that is undoubtedly an extreme inextricably linked to the economy. Public health infrastructure is about Dr Leana. Wen has devoted her career to improving. She's an emergency room physician, former health commissioner of Baltimore And she's written a new memoir about the links between public health and really everything else. It's called lifelines. A doctor's journey in the fight for public Health. Lena Welcome to the program. Thank you. Great to join you today. The way you describe the concept of public health really stuck with me. Basically, you say that every day public health is saving our lives, but we just don't realize it. What do you mean by that? By definition. Public health is successful when we have prevented something from happening, and then by definition, there is no phase two public health. I mean, there is the face of a child who was lead poisoned. But not the face of a child who could have been lead poisoned except that his home had been remediated. And I think this is the reason, though, why I'm public health becomes the first on the chopping block because people don't understand it. Well, you were the health commissioner of Baltimore. And one thing that surprised me. It was just the broad scope of your job. How you described it. In the book, You did everything from animal control to fighting the opioid epidemic. And it made me wonder if people really understand the role that local public health departments play in their lives and ultimately in the economy. Well, I definitely don't think that people understand the role of health departments at all. I mean, I think there may be better understanding now because of covid as and I would wager that prior to Covid. People didn't even know that there was a state health department. There is often a city and county health department and the interplay between them. I bet people never really thought about that. And I think now people equate public health with infection control, which is, of course, an important component. But that's certainly not all we do. And so, for example, in Baltimore, Um yes. Restaurant inspections fell under the health department also oversaw of school health in every single one of our 180 public schools. As well as senior centers. I mean, that all is public health. Of course, The scope of public health depends on where you are in the country. But I think that coming out of Kobe not that we're done with Covid, but I think there is a real opportunity to let people know about how whatever issue they care about. Directly relates to public health. And if somebody cares about public safety or the economy or education, there is a direct link to the work of health departments to it's all interconnected like you write that public health is housing. It is food. It is clean air and his education. And it's basically the ability to level An unequal playing field. And you, you know you're a doctor. Um, And there's this phrase that you borrow from medicine to describe the public health condition of the U. S. And that phrase is acute on chronic. What does that mean? And how does that apply to the situation we're in today? Yeah, There are ongoing chronic issues. But then you overlay on top of that, and acute exacerbation, if you will. This is what we often talk about in medicine is in. Somebody may have diabetes. But then there is something that occurs and then they have, um they have an acute exacerbation. It suddenly is getting worse. And now they end up in the hospital with very high blood sugars. Because of that, maybe I'm getting too clinical with technology. You know, this is something but for the non doctors out there. Yeah, but the idea is that in public health, this often happened so one of the chapters of the book, for example, I talk about the uprisings that occurred after the death of Freddie Gray and how in the aftermath of the uprisings There were so many people who had mental health concerns for experiencing acute trauma. But it wasn't new, as in. There was already this undercurrent of unmet need. When it came to mental health and trauma, Then you lay on top of that this acute exacerbation both have to be treated. We have to talk about systemic racism and equities disparities how racism itself as a health issue. I mean, you got to get there, but there are short term things that you can do right now. So for example, at that time we set up at 24 7 Mental Health and Trauma hotline. We did healing circles with our schools. I mean, there was there were short term actions that you can take will also longer term addressing these issues that for a long time have been there, too. Well, yeah, to your point you mentioned in your book that back in 2015. You started calling out racism as a public health issue, and that raised a lot of eyebrows. You know, people understood racial disparities as a public health issue, but Not necessarily structural racism. Do you think the pandemic has helped shift people's understanding? I do. I definitely think that people understand the idea of health disparities but again sometimes when these issues are interrelated I think there can be decision paralysis as in. I think some people could say Hey, if everything is related to everything, and the problems are longstanding, what can I do right now? And that's what I try to make a point of in lifelines of same Yes, these problems are really hard. But there are things that you can do. There are tangible steps that you can do. I mean, for example, around the opioid epidemic. I got criticized, Frankly, for why it is that we focused on naloxone initially getting the opioid antidote to every resident in our city, right? And people said that's not a long term solution. Why, Why are you doing that? That's that's only helping somebody right now. Well, first of all, if somebody is dead today, there's no chance of a better tomorrow. But second of all, it was something tangible that we could do and show people that while we're working on long term solutions, we can address this right now. Lena When is an emergency room physician, former Baltimore health commissioner and contributing columnist for The Washington Post, and she is the author of her memoir, Just Out Lifelines, a Doctor's Journey and the Fight for Public Health. Thanks so much for your time, Lena. Thank you for having me join you today..

Nba finals have put the city of milwaukee in the spotlight for the bucks. Play the phoenix suns. Tonight in game. Six of the finals for the first time in fifty years the bucks a chance at the championship and if they win tonight bucks will clinch the victory in their home city. This means a lot to a lot of milwaukee ends who are coming together to celebrate this especially some milwaukee. Public school students who had their own basketball season cancelled dacoven. Nineteen and we got a call from jason rosenbaum. A colleague over at saint. Louis public radio. Who had this to say. I've been a bucks fan for nearly thirty years. even though i'm from the chicago suburbs originally. I fell in love with the team after my dad took me to a game in the nineteen ninety s when most of the bulls games were sold out. They've either been terrible are mediocre. Are heartbreakingly disappointing. So this year when they made it to the finals. I didn't really think twice about buying two tickets to the game and it was a real full circle moment when my dad and i got to watch them win. What is now their first of three victories in the series. So if they win on tuesday it would be by far the biggest sports moment of my life. Speaking of full circle brandon. Joseph the dean of students and head barthelme boys basketball coach at carmen northwest high school in milwaukee recognized a need in his community and he brought the community together to create a basketball league of their own called city on the floor. He's here to talk with us right now about basketball the bucks and what this nba final means for milwaukee to the show brandon. Thanks for having me. It's a pleasure. This is an exciting moment. I gotta say as somebody who was living in new orleans when we won the super bowl right after hurricane katrina there is something kind of special about the ways that the championship can like. Make you feel like all right. We're gonna make it through most definitely. An update would actually does entirety. It brings a city and state together all walks of life enjoying it junior for one time ago. just think is it's marvelous. So speaking of coming together for a common goal milwaukee public schools didn't have a basketball season this year. So how did you make a decision to create your own season in all i was i was receiving phone calls from a lot of players. Parents just They were concerned. The biggest concern was that other counties were playing and we really add answer at the time but just it was a lot of sleepless nights whereas life and something has to happen for these kids not only just to give them sports but we all know during the most romantic time of the history of our world out mitt during that time so i got a law with three other individuals and we you know pretty much devised a plan so they can have a safe outlet through basketball. Did it happen here. No it was actually forty-five miles away because we're closed here. But we devised a plan to kind of be able to provide the opportunities for you to athletes at the time in a way that feels real milwaukee to me like just figuring out a way to make it happen. Even if you don't have all the resources you need most definitely i think Walk down on you out the bug gyco city and you're absolutely right when adversity hits we utilize adversity to build character and improvise strategies. So we can assist our families. That was just dr community. Tell me a little bit more about the program. How sort of the age groups and how are you guys getting. Forty five minutes away. where carpooling. How did this all work. We just put everything you said just pretty much together. We had a transportation system for that where they actually the game games We utilize a template. Where through email know you need a ride. We we'll tell you the two stops near the shuttle the at and then you can go and Utilize that as a arrived forty minutes away in regards to the age group. It was all high school Because predominantly Even aren't going to school population with suspected as well. Our high school population Was at arm's reach from it. So we all high school groups in you know a lot of guy with their free hands and just said hey. Let's let's find his league. You know we're not doing nothing for next time next time after dirksen school. Let's utilize his league as outlets and be able to socialize and a fellowship together and the kava goal of trying to win it. So i've been listening to of the kind of national sports talking heads and on. Espn i take recently. Somebody took a shot at milwaukee by calling it quote a terrible city compared to other cities at the final have been hosted in. Do you wanna say some about milwaukee. Born raised here you know. Initially you listen to those type of how immediately but after processing it. Wow after seeing being absurd in the national spotlight. I'm hoping though certain individuals eat those words because at the end of the day walk traditionally just do a homegrown city where especially when adversity hits comments like that tried to serve as a statement. Only dude now. He kind of motivates us can come together and be able to be united and show the world that we're we're no different than anybody else. We just want to root for our hometown team and live life like everyone else now. Milwaukee has had challenges challenges that many other american cities have faced as well challenges around race around housing segregation policing violence all of those issues and yet it feels like the bucks in. The finals has at least brought the city together in some ways. We've been talking about black joy a lot this summer. Have you been seeing some black joy. In milwaukee almost definitely the bucks have been that i call it a positive destruction. The some of the things. That's been going on It's just been a positive distraction. Gay at least give us. If they're planning to kaiser week they give us those six hours out the week where you could come together all walks in life and joy a spirit of you know wants to actually enroll for your hometown so but six hours out the week. You get time to enjoy some quality basketball. What if your players your teenagers been telling.

"To armchair expert for free now. Only on spotify. I'm helga davis.

Nick cave actress and disability advocate maryland. Talking ten and author jason reynolds. Listen to helga the armory conversations. We're ever you get podcasts. Back with you now on the takeaway. Melissa harris perry last week my little quarantine pod took a good old fashioned family road trip after looking at the same for walls for all year. Twelve hours a minivan with kids and dogs managed to feel like freedom as traveled south from north carolina to new orleans stopping for snacks gas and stretches along the way we started to feel like we were the last mask wearing people in the country. The prompted my youngest who seven to ask at one point. Mummy is the corona virus over. Now i can't tell you how much i wish. I could have responded with an enthusiastic. Yes we're all good. But i'm sorry to report. That isn't the case. In fact the number of new cases per day in the us has doubled over the past three weeks and the overwhelming majority of these cases are among the unvaccinated. And just to make a point. The unvaccinated are more diverse group than you might think it's not just about ideology it's not just about region it's not just about race or age so right now with this new more contagious delta variant. That is responsible for more than half of these cova cases. We are in a real situation. And you've been talking to us about this as well at eight seven seven eight six nine eight to five three. Hi this is susan from washington the spread of the delta variant is definitely a warning to me that the pandemic is not over so i am continuing to mask in public places also continuing regular handwashing however i cannot resist the opportunity us. I'm not as cautious as i was last year. But i still wear a mask whenever i go into a store or public place. I wash my hands constantly. I try to keep a social distance. And i rarely eat out anymore. It's sad but i just don't think we're through the pandemic completely yet. This is barbara and san jose. Art feel safe from the gulf of vaccinated with the type during a vaccine. I still mask up when a business or proprietor wishes it to be polite and respectful. But otherwise i m mask free. This is doug in. Hi this is catherine calling from ridgewood. New jersey yes it is definitely making me realize how much the pandemic is not over. I continue to wear a mask when i enter a public establishments regardless of what the regulation say. I also continue to prefer outdoor dining or empty off our restaurants. It just seems safer. Hi this is. Mike brahimi from the bronx new york. I'm not at all concerned. The new delta variant is fully vaccinated since the early part of march this year. I also had kobe fifteen months ago. Everything that i read said that the mr vaccines or ninety. Four percent effective preventing me from getting a serious case for hospitalization. This is theresa goodell. From beaverton oregon. Yes i am still wearing a mask. I'm concerned about the spread of the delta variant. So i'm sticking with the plan. I'm going to go on wearing a mask in public places And i'm also limiting contact with people from outside the household and close friends I know people who are immunocompromised. And i don't want to put them or myself and family at risk. Yes my name. Is michael and i in buffalo new york. I'm a physician in a high volume. Emergency department and the delta variant is causing a spike in kobe among people who are not backs naked and it's causing deaths and it's heartbreaking because people seem to think that the vaccine is experimental or it's not approved or so that they don't want to get the vaccine until they get sick and they didn't really believe that they could get sick but now spiking back and they get sick they get very sick and some of them die and it's breaking my heart. That such disinformation campaign is costing so many lives is very upset with me now to discuss the rising covert rates and the delta variant. Is emily martin associate professor of epidemiology at the university of michigan. Emily welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me melissa okay. So cases are rising in more than half of us states. Can you talk about where the kind of geographic hot spots are absolutely so. We're definitely seeing rises in states. Like arkansas is is kind of the fastest. The highest state right now but tennessee is the fastest climbing. We're seeing a lot of cases in florida. I think he's really been in the news for high cases and a lot of hospitalizations nevada has been in the news louisiana. We see a lot of big climbs in southern states particularly as well. You know it's when you said florida like just in that moment. My knees buckled a little bit because our family was planning our annual august. You know florida vacation and you know we have a seven year old who cannot be vaccinated yet and it feels like man. We're going to have to say again this year can't do it. This is a big challenge for families of young kids and kids are too young to be vaccinated. I know you know my family. We've got a vacation planned for august with a mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated kids. And we're gonna have to be more careful than i think. We were hoping we would have to be so talk to me about this vaccinated and unvaccinated so again our seven year old that's not an option to vaccinated yet so even though the adults in the family are vaccinated. We're modeling wearing the masks and washing the hands and all of those things we've been doing for year and a half but what do we know about the populations of folks who are unvaccinated. The the national percentage if you look overall at adults nationwide were approaching seventy percent which is good news. We need to be higher with seventy percent is pretty good but really if you break that down what it looks like. We've got almost ninety percent of our seventy five in. Older adults are vaccinated over ninety percent of our sixty five to seventy five alter vaccinated. And so it's really you know we get down to the eighteen year olds to the forty year old. So those in their twenties thirties and forties only looking at about half of those adults are vaccinated. And so what. We're going to start to see this concentration of infection in these lower age groups. That arts taking up the vaccine fast as the older adults now granted it has been recommended for those dolts adults for as long right. We prioritize the older adults because they're a higher risk of hospitalization but younger adults can still infect children and so we really need to get the numbers up in those younger groups. Now let's talk about delta for a moment. I was during a family road trip. I had a conversation. Just briefly with someone at a gas station said oh i was going to get vaccinated but now but there's the delta variant. I'm not going to. Because there's no vaccine against the variant. And i thought no i don't i don't think that's right. I don't think that's right so help our listeners. W- if you are vaccinated or you still at risk relative to delta you know so the vaccine absolutely works against the delta variant. There may be small differences in how the vaccine works. But you know we are monitoring this really closely and groups all over the world including my research group monitors this too and what.

"I'm Beth Carroll. I'm here with Emily sweetheart who's director of community relations for the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art. We want to talk about the holiday events that you have coming up there at the Morse. But first why don't you go ahead and give us a little thumbnail of what the Morse Museum is all about? Well, thank you back so much for that introduction. The Charles husband, Morse Museum of American Art actually houses the world's most comprehensive collection of work. By Louis Comfort Tiffany Louis Comfort. Tiffany was a prolific designer on an artist from the late 19th and early 20th century. He was a glass artist, but he was also a painter, and he was multifaceted and Just an absolute Renaissance man when it came to front mediums, and he worked in everything from glass to painting, as I said, But he also did ceramics, and he did trouble areas. Well, many people will recognize the name His father was Charles Tiffany, who is the founder of Tiffany and Co. In New York. And so ah, lot of people assumes they hear Tiffany. They think jewelry or they just think leaded glass. But in fact he did so many other things, and he was just an amazing amazing creator and designer and artists. And so we showcases worked at the museum, as well as various other artists from the same time period. Give context when we also have paintings, fine art. On Gui have graphics and all American art. So of all different kinds. What do you featuring right now? Are there any special exhibits underway? Well, I'm so glad you asked Way actually opened a new installation on October 20th. It is Louis Comfort Tipnis Fireplace Hood on but circa 18 85, and it's made of iron, but it also has these panels of mica and it and it was an extremely extremely unique But also cherish peace by Tiffany. It moved from his residence in Manhattan to his Laurelton hall estate when he built it on and it moves from the library to the smoking room. And Tiffany did that with certain pieces that were either one of a kind or were very personal to him. They would move with him from residents to residents on, do we Acquired a T end of last year. We were able to finally install it in the museum, and it was just an amazing opportunity. And it's really the only place in our Laurelton Hall galleries and Laurel to howling and is the only place for it to be displayed. And so we're so excited to bring it to the public. Such a beautiful part of the museum. So tell me about the acquisition. Where was it found? That was a conserved. So actually last year at the fall, Tae Pfaff show in New York at the Park Avenue Armory. They Lillian NASA, a the primary Tiffany dealer, probably in the country and, most likely the world. They brought the item to the to the show, and they displayed it with a backdrop. Up of where it was originally installed, and they called us or they actually so arly Silka, who's the managing director there? She actually called up our curator collection managers, and you have to come see this because it's one of those objects. You've only seen pictures and eight year old photos and you know it once existed. But as you well know, Tiffany's stay on Long Island actually burned down and so was believed that the fireplace food was also lost to the wreckage. And so nobody could have anticipated that this object was going to reappear as it did. And so when our curated collection managers thought she just she was floored. On Assistance from the Stein walks on Do they were they gifted, certain amount of gifted for the fireplace had to come to the Morrison. We were really, really excited about that. So it's finally there and we're just so thrilled that people can see it in situ and be able to see it in its context or is close to the context as possible Or is Tiffany would have wanted it? So two questions there. Number one. What is the process? Like to bring something like that meeting you've negotiated. You purchased it. How doesn't even get moved? And then when you install it, What are you doing to make sure that it's in context. So there is some conservation that the fireplace hood had to undergo because of course, it had been stored and it hadn't been stored in a climate controlled. Environment and so are least a soca. Actually at Lillian NASA. She did some complimentary conservation for us on day. Then it was brought down here very carefully, Of course, all of New York down to one over Florida and then it was looked at by our conservatives and our red star, and it was Venice test and, of course of images were taken of it, and, um, there was research done, collecting as much information as possible. As you a lot of visual. Obviously, a lot of visuals in order to get the setting, right, but then are curing collection manager. She actually wanted to create the environment that Tiffany had installed the hood into and that required her Tonto. Get super reproduction. Suba are Japanese sword guards s So if you have a samurai, he used to go with a sword. They needed something to block. The guard blocked the handle from the blade. And so that is a suba. And so Tiffany. It actually done the design of where the fireplace which was Kind of adorned with all of these snaking Suba. And so she actually went ahead on. How it was because it can't ever be on And that's one of the bittersweet parts about Laurelton Hall in about having these these aren't in architectural elements exhibited is that the environment is his closest it can be, But it can never be perfect because Laurelton Hall doesn't exist anymore as Tiffany rendered it on DSA, so Along those lines. Um it was a lot of concert conservation than it was a lot of research. And then it was a lot of just putting all the pieces together on D lot of moving parts, but to get as close as possible so that the public and people who view the fireplace so it can not only appreciate it as an art object, but also appreciate the setting that it was in because that's one of the crucial element of the decorative arts is that these things were Lived with that they were surrounded. People were surrounded by them and beautified the setting. And so that's kind of the way that our curator and collection manager, I believe, approached it on. That's how it it's now displayed in this again. The fireplace. What is gorgeous on its own, and it's just there's no other piece like it, but the way it displayed his magnificent as well. Definitely sounds incredible. And so it's up and ready and people could come in and see it. Yes, yes. You don't take a moment and you kind of hinted at this, but Brag a little bit about what the more spews him is really nationally. It's the one place to really find this kind of a collection, isn't it? Yes, it is..

And you do projects there and the way that you talk about the projects that you do there is just like it. Sounds so mundane. This is just another place place to work. There is no difference between like a small little basement of a synagogue. And this like unbelievable. Oh you regal place. It's funny I I appreciate so much. Say It's funny. I think over the years I think it's been somewhat conscious of like trying to Maybe has something to do with making Peter for young people like. There's no I don't feel compelled to be thrust forward to be the first person to speak or even naming lights I I actually I find so much joy in like creating a situation a theatrical situation and then sort of sliding back into the shadows I was once at a place like this. It wasn't this place where I was sitting there. We're having a doing some work like writing or something and a couple of next to me was talking about the show the trust side pictures and they didn't know I was a part of it They were talking about it up in a way and they're talking about this other show he made. This is bizarre and then once with some colleagues of ours. Someone congratulated a colleague colleague on the show. They were in. But congratulations so beautiful on unaware that I had project letter written in the show and I was like this is awesome. Like it's. It's really fun to set up situation to let other people feel successful because into right. There's there's something selfless about it inherently anyway. Somebody said you can't. You can't immerse people bull in a contemporary setting because they're already immersed in like I can't create an immersive theatre show set in two thousand nineteen because we already living twenty nineteen and Mike. That's really interesting. So what does that mean does that mean and I immediately thought about it in terms of generational timeframes. So like what's the how. How how far do you have to go back to truly provide an escape from our reality to another world like a currently I think of like the one thousand nine hundred and you could make a theater show? That's like all stranger stranger. Things is a good example. Of how much like so wrapped up in it yet. Like if that Sean come out. Maybe ten years ago or fifteen years ago would we have been so interested of viewer to like take over the art world like what what is your. What is the rain of Drew Peterson? Look like I was talking to our dear friend Jonathan about this the other day. Who is Jonathan Schmidt Chapman? If you're listening to this who will actually be here later and he says such incredible mine in Hawaii Realm. I'm and I often thinking about things in theatre for young people or or even what. I've been calling Makita for all audiences because when we go I think a good show for young people or piece of culture for young people works for an adult to like. It's not like oh well thanks for the little kid but you know I don't. I'm not interested in that town for a summer. Every two years or every year is is completely taken over by new commissioned progressive artistry that might have a life beyond that festival some of it it might but much of it is completely an experiment at the commissioning whims of the artistic programmatic team of the festival. Holtz city town surrounds itself with and advocates for it. And I've been Manchester Catholic three times with the armory which has been wonderful wonderful and lovely and I've seen some crazy things and stuff. That's completely wonderful and Hair blows was your hair back and some that you're like what is is this like how. How did somebody pay pay for this? What is it and I just there's something so attractive about in an ideal world wouldn't it be fascinating. If many not even in New York I think of all the beauty and charm of like these up near upstate. New York towns like Hudson or beginner dinner Kingston where you have these old industry buildings. That are derelict. And you see what if you could have a festival of the most emergent work in the country that might not live on in this remote place that people had to go to not quite like burning man but like that. It's it's like if you were going to. Let's call it the Kingston Festival you knew you were going to see people really be challenging themselves to make some of the most emergent artistry in the field and I think that also comes out of the white trustees psychic was born of what this real call to arms for like what is what is high quality united states-based artistry for Young People look like I don't mean to get patriotic about it. There is something interesting about that to me. Like what does it mean to be an American making art now well and for young people and what is it that place. What is its place in the global a global stage? I really interested in that. So it's you know it's it's it's funny. It's like not even world domination. The war at home lies within like carving a progressive identity and culture making for young people. It feels like farm-to-table theatre for young people like if you could create the stone barns of meter for young people somewhere far are we. The people had to go to seek it out that seems so enticing and sexy and attracted to me it feels even if it wasn't good like people would come in. I don't know what that was is but like people are trying things. I love that I think that's so sweet. Speaking of commissions and commissioning new work work at drew. I love our conversation so far but we also have an opportunity here to work together to commission a new you work of public art with funds from Cozy Zone Foundation. We've been given an extraordinary budget by one of the trustees. This is a two point six two million dollar budget to create a piece of public art uh-huh and this comes from the daily income of three New York area bridges and tunnels so that that's nine hundred ridden forty four thousand dollars taken in from the George Washington Bridge every day. We got one point one four million dollars taken in from the Verrazano narrows is bridge every day and clocking in at five hundred forty thousand dollars from the hugh l Carey tunnel formerly the battery tunnel. Rookie Battery Yeah. Yeah Very Nice. So so with a whopping two point six two million dollars I've been given a dossier here actually We can take a look at so. I'm seeing a A design proposal a call for artists roundabout at one twenty Eighth Avenue and Cook Circle City of Horton Colorado. And it's the details of this cohesiveness between the landscape and the artwork Creativity reflecting the history of Eastlake community and embody the values of agricultural history agrarian lifestyle and wildlife so seems to be a commission around artistic mission around the town that's really bridging content and form to the location where it's made and particularly in this town. Now what are you seeing in terms of this site. Looks like it's like a roundabout it. It's definitely in a roundabout sort of looks almost like Columbus Circle type looking looking thing where highway in another road to sort of major thoroughfares converge. Ground Sixty five feet in diameter No height restriction to this proposal on nicer curious more pictures it looks like a fairly rural area. Looks like farmland and fields. I'm seeing railroads. Little fields of plants. Churches an old sort of mid-century buildings and businesses it's like Americana our economy. It's most beautiful perfect.

Indoor outdoor seated standing show will more intimate gallery, performance Dillard's and Renfro have helped show a stackable slide -able and very democratic new coach hop for the city. Cool in New York. I'm Ed stock. We have back with second part of the interview with Elizabeth Diller now Monaco's Ed stock started by asking her what it felt like to finally unveiled a shed earlier this month and her thoughts on the criticism. It's from certain circles, it's amazing after eleven years of invention persuasion, and very very hard work that we finally open to the public, and it's such a joyful opening with all these fantastic activities happening in the building. Which is why the whole building was imagined in the first place. Some of the media has been quite negative about Hudson yards, and sort of what it represents full New York. How have you found herring? Reactions like that. So I expected the press it's a very massive development. But it allowed us to have this unique opportunity. To do a true experiment. We had a piece of property that was open on three sides, and we could actually control the fourth and we had some open space next to us. So we could truly exploit space in New York, and the shed sits on sovereign land. It's owned by the city will be protected by the city, and the shed in itself has total free reign. It does not have really anything to do with the commercial development. So while that development is a backdrop, it's exactly the thing that allowed us to be opportunistic and get what we want in terms of property and infrastructure and adjacent property. So we affectively tripled our footprint. None of the actual space of the fixed building or the shed needs to be used in support of anything. It is totally used for cultural public space. I might add that it'll though Hudson ya. Has been referred to fool. The no point one send the new times also said that the shed could be for the other nineteen nine point nine percent. So how does that make you feel that it's being viewed as this democratic institution and have you been happy with the initial cultural programming in the opening first few weeks. Yeah, I think that the shed was always conceived as a democratic welcoming place, and it was meant to build new audiences and not the same standard audience that you would necessarily get to the Brooklyn academy of music or to Lincoln center or to MoMA, and this intention is supported really by the programming. So it's not just the building that feels democratic the programming has been really supportive of all of our efforts. So the the initial programming has been supportive of this Alex puts the artistic director and CEO has envisioned a kind of complex puzzle. Of programming in four dimensions. And there are multiple things happening in the building. At once one of the really great programming ideas came from Steve McQueen, the director of twelve years, a slave and the program is five nights of concerts of the history of African American music and family tree, basically of the roots in seventeenth century coming all the way up to our current time and the artists that are just emerging..

And the guy who played big pussy who was that Salvator whatever's name, I just wanted to say. I've noticed. So anyway, so here's the typical tweet bunch of our listeners, so great joy in my prediction being wrong. Let's see Vick said lead said he'd never win. He also said there's Russian collusion. You're wrong on many counts. Apparently that is this lady, I don't know over name is. But she said, you know, I can't even tell them to go back to sports anymore. That's a good one. She says find them a nice, quiet room. Relive the glory days with reruns of spanning the world Iraq. Obama was president. Thanks listeners. Love you all to I've out to pasture for Len. I really listen to. Yeah. Get opinions wrong. I must be the only one. Let's just that. You you say them with such certainty that it's I it's so when you are wrong, it's fun. I never thought he'd win. Again. If you're not alone on that one. I made a lot of people never thought that was a surprise win come on. Well, it was but I'll tell you. It was not coming. It wasn't only all the surgeries which I thought, you know, the Amana torque he puts on his back into those back surgeries and these surgeries and the amount of force. He puts on his body wasn't only that I just thought that his fall from grace that whole thing when he hit the fire hydrant with his car clubs strip club and the whole the porn girlfriends, and the whole thing when he was exposed as a fraud and not the person he purported to be that that would be psychologically, breaking I really did. And it was I mean listening to win a major for eleven years. So he's got a girlfriend now. Right. Yes. He does. And his son was their daughter girlfriend is a manager of one of his restaurants. Really? Yeah. Yeah. For awhile now, Erica Herman. He's forty three forty three nNcholas when he had his comeback the mass. Well, no when he was forty six when he won his last masters in one thousand nine hundred six right? And I think it's remarkable. And yes, the the next the major no they've shifted the whole schedule around. They used to have the PGA is the final major. I don't know why they shift the. But now, it's the second major is going to be a Bethpage next month. That's right. So he has a chance right here at Bethpage. And then the US open, and he's one at Bethpage in the US open is a Pebble Beach. He's one they're big time. So maybe the Nicklaus thing is back on track. He's got fifteen majors. Tiger Nicklaus has had eighteen also. And I thought he'd never thought he'd never win another one. So, you know, so he's got to be the favorite now going into the PG one of the favorites. You can't have one favorite and golf. There's so much talent out there. I was surprised how they all. Just kind of choke down the stretch wasn't an exciting, man. Oh, yeah. The whole thing was I watched every minute of it, you watch just about I love the fact that was on in the morning. Perfect. Yeah. Just loved watching the whole thing, and you know, Molinari collapsed on the twelfth hole and in fee now too. They both went water on kept good. Then had a, you know kept. If he makes that putt on. Yes, Sudas catch says kept is the it's over. I mean, I thought it was over three holes. You know, when he birdied sixteen within a foot or two feeding of a hole in one. I said, okay, it's over, but you know, it would have been a playoff. Anyway, how much money did he win? But he tries is it over a million over a million. I could have won some money. They I got a text from fan duel before the masters began ten dollar bet on tiger. I think would pay two hundred bucks. Really? Wow. You didn't know the trigger? No. Oh boy. Look who say hi, everybody say blame planes now, blame you. Now, you've got to be. Peg you as a master's fan. Your big Gulf Cairo by Nassar cycle. He watches on fan. I was just going to chime in about that bet. My son bet thirty two dollars in one five hundred because he put it on tiger. Why freely who? You got me. It's like thirty to fifty and one five hundred five hundred so one hundred four. Wow. So people made a lot of money on this thing. Sure. I did think the scene with him hugging his son. And then his daughter afterwards was quite touching because as you know, with most athletes their career's done before the kids have any idea what they've done in their lives. So less than so forty-three. So you got a big football player baseball player winning the World Series or Super Bowl. And you know, the odds are you know, there was a famous Super Bowl in the giants won. What was it bardo? Ted his little tiny kid on his shoulders probably know what was going on. But the fact that his kids now know it was happening, and we're part of it. I thought that was kind of special and he played with no emotion right throughout the whole thing. Very cool. Very cool focused, by the way, he won two million dollars. Oh, that's all. They went over a million. I was right. See I shouldn't go back to sports. I said he was the the gum showing thing.

So hey, did anybody anybody dying? Anybody get killed any big stars. I'm not spoiling any. Thank you. So what's this speak another language, right? Yes. Do you know any of these words?

"They aren't as advanced as some buildings. I think you know, they've regarded as a very futuristic thing. But it's a little bit of a slightly dated development model. I didn't know this. They explain it's like, well, we think it's going to be really a millennium workforce millennial workforce it cetera. And but millennials tend to like, you know, like warehouse buildings in, you know, down in this part of town, you're surrounded by tech here, right? And they kind of like that environment of being in the city, and this is much sleeker with these very glassy super tall buildings and the big mall, which is actually no matter what they say. It's like, it's an experience. It's a new malls been re conceived. It's really it's a mall, the malls are kind of old school. You're absolutely right. Yeah. So whether I am not a retail expert, whether it has the makes that's really attractive to a lot of people. Well, we'll see. I mean, it's gigantic and has like I think something like thirty places to eat in it. So that's not bad. Well, that's lovely. I'm, but you know, we can't talk about that big development without talking about housing. What are the price ranges of the apartments that are there? And is there any affordable housing and that structure? Yeah. Because they got tax breaks. They did do some affordable housing. I think about one hundred units there's not that much housing in this piece of it. It's mostly offices. That'd be I can part will be more do more for housing. So ultimately. It's gonna have four thousand units of housing of which I believe twenty percent will be affordable. Of course, there's a real range from what some of us would not exactly affordable. But is the low market range that I've seen so far runs on the low end from five million dollars to two hundred forty million dollars. If you're purchasing an apartment the rentals I've seen are upwards of five grand. So. Yeah. Casca say affordable. That's the market. Those are the market. Okay. Well, actually, they're called below market housing. I don't even know if they're referred. Yes. Affordable. Yeah. Some of it is I think that was my term, okay would say affordable. I like below market because it sort of says, okay? If market is, you know, five thousand dollars a month and below market is three thousand dollars a month. But that's still not affordable. No, I appreciate your call. That's really what I'm talking about. There are some very inexpensive unit, but you're gonna have to get into this lottery, which has already been done. And you know, they'll have as happens with these these things, you know. Fifty thousand applicants for one hundred department Mike and don't get me started about how complicated it is to figure all this out. Unnecessarily? So, but that's not the developers fault. That's the way it's done. Right. But I got very nice tax breaks and got more ability to build more space because of including affordable units. That's how they get some deal. That's how it's done here in New York nowadays. Yes. Can you talk a little bit about this thing called the shed? This is like a culture a cultural venue. That's part of the project. What what is it? Exactly. Well, I called it a cultural venue looking for a reason to exist, and they found it relatively recently. But really having a cultural facility was mandated from the beginning development, really to make it more diverse than just offices and restaurants and it really expensive apartments. So the shed developed over time as this venue for all of the arts to come together. So it's exhibition. It's performance. It's different kinds of performance. And you know, and big giant spectacles a little bit. Like, they do in the Park Avenue armory. Because that's because it is this big shed like structure, that's covered. It's it's like a exploded railcar giant railcar because it actually rolls back and forth. And so the idea is when it's when it's rolled out. You can have big things like art fairs or flower shows, or you know, theatrical spectacles that involve huge numbers of people. And then when they're not using it, then they push it back, and it's also kind of wired, it's very high Talia space. So it can detract all kinds of high tech. I guess they tried to make it as flexible as possible. So that you can do any kind of event in any of the you can have an exhibit in a space one day. And then you can have a dance performance the next, you know, they can do the idea is to make it very flexible, that's kind of cool kind of like Manhattan answered a bam or something like that. You know? Yeah. Well, I think Tekere ban lot like the bam wants to be part of part of it for now. I've heard the philharmonic wants to be part of it. I don't think it's a real acoustical yet. As of that kind something that a Raleigh train car doesn't sound like it would be. Acoustically? Nice. I'm is it possible. Do you think that some of the housing that's available? There might end up being more investment properties for people as opposed to a real lived in space. Yeah. Happens to all especially the high end housing. I mean, if you're spe if you're spending twenty let's say twenty million for an apartment, then you have many houses. So this is only one of your houses and to get the tax break of owning it you have to be here for X number of days a year. I forget what it is. But yeah, these people regard them as investment properties. They regard them as places to launder money, which has been revealed. And a lot of press reported math, not always the nicest people are buying into these things. But yeah, I mean in terms of are these people going to be the ones activating this place. No, they're not it's going to be the people coming to the public space and coming to the mall, and and all that. That's what's gonna make. If it's if it becomes lively and fun and desirable. That's what's going to do it. James russell. Thank you so much for giving us, some background, and unpacking. What is Hudson yards for us here today? I really appreciate that. You're welcome.

"I wouldn't say it's highly adventurous, but the buildings, you know, are what you might call a good standard for energy efficiency. They've done. They're going to capture all the storm water on site, which is a good thing for climate change. Because our storm sewers getting overwhelmed by all the rain. We're having that we didn't use to have. And and it's raised above. Now. What I don't know is whether they actually raise the MTA rail yards above flood level, which would be very helpful. Yeah. But of course, a lot. The money and then the development be even higher up anyway. But the one saving grace there is they can move all the trains when they know a flood is gonna come. So I dunno forty years from now, it could be bad news. But I don't really know for now, it might be decent news.

But really having a cultural facility was mandated from the beginning to the development really to make it more diverse than just officers. In restaurants, and it really expensive apartments. So the shed developed over time as this venue for all of the arts to come together. So it's Bishen its performance, it's different kinds of performance. And and big giant spectacles a little bit. Like, they do in the Park Avenue armory. Because that is big shed like structure, that's covered. It's like a exploded railcar. I mean, a giant railcar because it actually rolls back and forth. And so the idea is when it's when it's rolled out. You can have big things like art fairs or flower shows, or you know, theatrical spectacles that involve huge numbers of people. And then when they're not using it, then they push back, and it's also kind of wired, it's very high Talia space. So it can attract all kinds of high tech. I guess they tried to make it as flexible as possible. So that you can do any kind of event in any of that you can have an exhibit in a space one day. And then you can have a dance performance the next, you know, they can do the idea is to make it very flexible, that's kind of cool kind of like Manhattan answered Obam or something like that. You know? Yeah. Well, I think Tekere ban a lot like the bam wants to be part of part of it for now. I've heard the philharmonic wants to be part of it. I don't think it's a real. Acoustical yet as of that kind of rolling train car doesn't sound like it would be acoustically. Nice. Is it possible? Do you think that some of the housing that's available? There might end up being more investment properties for people as opposed to a real lived in space. Yeah. I mean that happens to all especially the high end housing. I mean, if you're spe if you're spending twenty let's say twenty million for an apartment, then you have many houses. So this is only one of your houses and to get the tax break of owning it you have to be here for X number of days a year. I forget what it is. But yeah, these people regard them as investment properties. They regard them as places to launder money, which has been revealed and a lot of press report, not always the nicest people are buying into these things. But yeah, I mean in terms of are these people are going to be the ones activating this place. No, they're not it's going to be the people coming to the public space and coming to the mall and all that. That's what's gonna make. If it's if it becomes lively and fun and desirable. That's what's going to do it. James russell. Thank you so much for giving us, some background, and unpacking. What is Hudson yards for us here today? I really appreciate that. You're welcome.

It was incredible. I mean, he's like, I think he's a Brooklyn based. But it was a downtown Katori kind of like you imagine this downtown club kid throwing together these like beautiful gowns and the models were all so beautiful. And it had such a great vibe of just like everybody in there knowing each other and being so positive and happy, and it just felt like such a new kind of thing, and it was so just elegant in in the similar way that the Mark show was as well. So the season was super incredible for me because I've been a huge fan of market ups for my whole life. And when I was in school at Parsons, and he went to Parsons, and it was just like such a major thing for me to to be walking the same halls that he did. And so Finally, I was invited to his show and it was in correctable. It was amazing to watch you in to oversee. We didn't go this season canoe watching. People at you for me that really convey how fun it is to go to shows. And it's not like what? Cool. It's not enthusiastic on it all mean. So okay. So this I'll give you the rundown.
