Strolling The Sculptures Of Midtown Manhattan

We recently teamed up with the fabulous Sofia Gauthier-Richardson from cosmoArteTV, a Spanish channel that takes you behind the scenes to experience the best of the best in the NYC art world.  From gallery openings and art fairs, to street art and exclusive interviews with artists, Sofia is the it-girl in NYC’s art scene, and we love staying up-to-date with all the happenings in her weekly videos.

For this week’s edition, we explored some of the famous sculptures that adorn the streets of Midtown Manhattan.

Make sure to subscribe to cosmoArteTV for Thursday dates with Sofia, your own personal curator into the vast sea of New York City art!

Ciao, ciao!









  • Hi Jess, what a wonderful video of Midtown art scene. Love all those art you have shown. Most of all, i was nice to see you on video. It’s almost like meeting you in person:) Good job, Jess. You’re such a natural in front of the camera

    • Used York City says:

      Aww, your so sweet;-) I know, I always feel like I almost know all the bloggers I read on a regular basis, even though I’ve never met them, and some live on the other side of the world! Fun to follow the adventures, though!

  • Michelle says:

    Great interview!! :) And I love that LOVE sculpture 😛 I remember spending some time learning about it back in art school!

    • Used York City says:

      Thanks Michelle! It’s such a great sculpture, right?! I kinda love Love, too:-)

  • Rebecca says:

    Love the video – you did awesome! And it was nice to see that part of NYC

    • Used York City says:

      Thanks Rebecca!:-) Yes, Midtown has a lot of fabulous nooks and crannies that are often overlooked.

  • Pamela Morse says:

    She sounds like an Argentinian. How fun!! Calder hung a mobile in the Pittsburgh airport when I was kid..I always loved it.

    • Used York City says:

      Oh, she is! Good call, Pamela! And yes, Calder is just great, we had lots of fun exploring his work.

  • Nice work on the video, Jess. You present really well!

    • Used York City says:

      Thanks! It was a super fun collaboration, we’re looking forward to future projects!:-)

  • what a great piece on NYC. I have not spent much time Mid-town as I should have. I have always been more uptown or downtown.. except for shopping places like Barneys and big Bloomies.

    • Used York City says:

      Thanks Stevie! And yes, Midtown is very well known for its fine shopping establishments!;-)

  • That Spanish host is quite a sculpture herself. What’s the difference between modern and contemporary art?

    • Used York City says:

      Sofia is always absolutely stunning! And the key difference between the 2 arts not so much the style, but the time they were produced. So modern art refers to artistic works produced in the period beginning in the 1880s and ending in the 1970s. Contemporary art follows modern art, beginning from 1970s to now and ongoing. Hope that helps!;-)

  • Your clothes! Super adorbs!!!!
