Madonna wasn’t drawn to New York City by tax breaks but by its cultural life, creative community, good transportation, and great bars. But if she arrived today, could she afford a place to live? Alicia Glen, deputy mayor for housing and economic development, sees the pop star as a business model, revealing the city’s strengths and weaknesses. And she says “crap” more than any deputy mayor in this administration. Plus Hubby Jenkins, who plays banjo better than anyone in any administration. Big fun at the Van Alen Institute.
