MOVING PEOPLE: Ishmael Houston-Jones on His Favorite Post-show Meal + How He Starts His Curation

After all these years, one thing I still love about New York is this: ___________.

Ishmael Houston-Jones: I’ve never had a driver’s license, so I love that NYC is not about car culture. That public transportation kinda works. And for better or worse, people must deal with one another, up close a personal on a daily basis. This also exposes New Yorkers to people of different backgrounds and cultures, which I think is generally a good thing. And related to that is the variety of food – Korean, North Indian, South Indian, vegan, Soul, Moroccan, Israeli, Northern Italian, Sicilian, steak houses, sushi Mexican, Vietnamese, kosher, Ethiopian... Most are available walking distance from my place in the East Village.
