New York: The Universal Allure of NYC’s Bodega Cats

New York
Apr 28, 2021 • View in browser
We’ve all been there. Drunk and hungry at 3am, waiting expectantly under harsh bodega lights for something you probably wouldn’t order in the light of day. Luckily, the cute kittens and (sometimes more aggressive) cats that guard our beloved corner stores rarely judge. Staff writer Hakim Bishara reports on @Bodegacats_, a social media tribute to these beloved feline friends, started by Rob Hitt.
Also newsworthy: New York City museums will be allowed to increase their capacity to 50% starting April 26.
Elsewhere in the realm of institutions, we’ve got reviews of El Museo’s triennial devoted to Latinx artists across the country; a Melissa Joseph show; upcoming film and performance programming; and much more.
