by Faith-Ann Young Fact #1: New Yorkers are more allergic to bridges and tunnels than plants and trees. Fact #2: Manhattanites generally enjoy exploring other boroughs as much as they like the Times Square subway platform in the stew of summer. Therefore, when Frieze Art Fair–which has thrived in London’s Regent Park for a decade–chose to debut its American counterpart May 4th through 7th on Randall’s Island, a geographical curse seemed in the cards. (“Who is this Randall and how do you get to his island?,” and so on.) Luckily, the one thing Manhattanites enjoy more than schadenfruede is a pleasant cultural surprise.
