Take Yourself out to the Ballgame
As you read this, tickets might still be available for a little New York baseball—with some prime games coinciding with the BEA schedule, should you need a respite from the exciting game of publishing. For the Yankees are in town, playing midweek night games with their Eastern division rival, the Tampa Bay Rays. The two clubs square off at the new Yankee Stadium at 7:05 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. Better get tickets now either through newyork.yankees.mlb.com, or through stubhub.com. Thursday night’s promotion, by the way, might be historic: a bracelet with “Yankee fragrance” attached. Haven’t a clue. If you are extending your stay in town, perhaps a better treat awaits you: that is, the New York Mets come crosstown from Queens and square off with the Bronx Bombers for Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon contests. In recent years, the so-called subway series has sold out, so you might want to act fast if you’re inclined to be a part of it.
City tips for BEA-goers
Like a Local
When you come to the BEA in June, I hope you’ll join my panel discussion on “The Evolution & Revolution of Travel Guides: An Insider’s Look at Experiential, Immersive Travel and Pushing the Publishing Envelope.” As a contrarian traveler, I hope you also take time to get out of the convention center and explore some of the best that New York has to offer. Here are a few spots not far from the Javits Center.
Art & Culture
Just off the High Line [see p. 38} you’ll discover the thriving Chelsea gallery scene. The Gagosian Gallery (555 W. 24th St., between 10th and 11th Aves.) always draws big names and offers the traditional New York art-lover experience. During June, a survey of the great Italian painter and sculptor Lucio Fontana will be on display. For a somewhat more cutting-edge exhibition, check out Jonathan Levine Gallery (529 W. 20th St., between 10th and 11th Aves.), which showcases the works of underground and emerging artists. Just a little farther south but still in Chelsea, you’ll find the Rubin Museum of Art (150 W. 17th St., between Sixth and Seventh Aves.). Brush up on your Buddhism and learn about Tibetan and Himalayan art at this small collection.
Want to see where nonfiction books are born? Take a night off and head to an event hosted by the Moth (www.themoth.org), where you can listen to storytelling events throughout the city each week. Some of the biggest talent get their start in New York, and the 99-seat Ars Nova theater (511 W. 54th St., between 10th and 11th Aves.) is one of the best places to see emerging and alternative performers, playwrights, and comedians in an unpretentious, black-box setting. You also never know what A-lister might be there that night, as the Moth has attracted performances from everyone from Liza Minnelli to Daily Show writers.
Most people will point you to Greenwich Village institutions like the Blue Note or the Village Vanguard for jazz, but there are plenty of alternate venues that are well worth a visit. Birdland (315 W. 44th St., between Eighth and Ninth Aves.) is an obvious choice, but there’s also the classic Bar on Fifth at the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel (400 Fifth Ave., at 36th St.), and a little farther south, Jazz Standard (116 E. 27th St., between Park and Lexington Aves.), located in the basement of Danny Meyer’s Blue Smoke barbecue joint, and often offers an early (8 p.m.) first set.
You may need a little sustenance during these tours. Get a slice of real New York pizza at Artichoke Basille (114 10th Ave., between 17th and 18th Sts.), one of the most interesting new pizza joints in the city. Or head to Tia Pol (205 10th Ave., between 22nd and 23rd Sts.) for a quick tapas lunch or even an afternoon break—nothing will get you more energized than a glass of sangria and some patatas bravas. Enjoy the show.

Need an escape from the Javits? Herewith a few recommendations on the current theater scene. See the play, skip the movie: at Lincoln Center, War Horse (brilliant, five Tony Awards including Best Play) features astoundingly lifelike, equine-sized puppets; bring Kleenex. Singin’ and dancin’, begorrah: Once, recently opened to rave notices, is set in a Dublin pub where a local musician meets a fetching Czech mate; totally lovely. For laughing your a** off—seriously: The Book of Mormon, the hottest musical Broadway has seen in eons, is worth trying to get or pilfer tickets; won 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Disney does it again: Newsies, a seriously charming tuner (with terrific terpsichorean talent), was recently resurrected from the 1992 flop movie. Want brand-new? Nice Work If You Can Get It is a veritable hit parade of iconic Gershwin songs, starring Matthew Broderick and the fabulous Kelli O’Hara. Nonmusical fare: the Pulitzer-winning Clybourne Park, in which two families 50 years apart discourse on the explosive topic of race; excellent. A revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man boasts a star-studded cast tackling political shenanigans. That’s Entertainment. In case you’ve missed ’em, this enduring musical quintet is worth checking out (and tix are often easier to get than newer arrivals): Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys, Anything Goes, and Chicago (the longest-running show in Broadway history).
