City of Sound is about cities, design, architecture, music, media, politics and more. Written by Dan Hill since 2001.

So. Back in NYC. It’s hot in the city – 28 degrees, and sticky – certainly a contrast to the rainy Heathrow I left this morning. Postopolis! starts tomorrow, and I can’t wait. If you’re within range, do try to get downtown to the Storefront to see what’s going on; it’s Tuesday-Saturday (see below).
