The Tribeca Film Festival is what I’m looking forward to. It’s half work and half fun. I’m a photographer, so I shoot the festival, but I also like to go to the movies.

I’m not going to be here all summer, so I’m going to miss everything anyway. I guess Easter music in churches.

I don’t want to miss the beach parties. That’s what I don’t want to miss. I know there’s one on Reeves Beach.

I just heard about something today—Sleep No More. It’s in the Chelsea area. It’s like a very interactive theater, which I like because I’ve done some acting, too. I always like it when I go to theater venues and they try new things, where it’s not an audience sitting down and there’s a stage, [but] the audience gets to participate. It’s loosely based on “Hamlet,” Shakespeare.

The High Line, going to the High Line. It’s the one thing I really want to do, because I didn’t get to do it [yet].

It’s my husband’s book launch at the Rubin Museum. That’s the one thing I definitely don’t want to miss. The title of the book is “Becoming Whole.”
