Dublin and New Orleans


This world is crowded with beauty that is scattered across its surface in uneven proportions, from mountaintops to deserts, from coral reefs to savannahs to jungles dripping with color, light, and life. The most beautiful place to me is my home: New York City, and I’m drawn to cities all over the globe. Two of my favorites are Dublin and New Orleans.

They both hug the shores of great rivers – the Mississippi and the Liffey.

They're both bursting with history.

But the best things about both are their musical pulse and their friendly, fascinating people.
