Visiting The Eldridge Street Museum in Chinatown

Imagine being a Jewish immigrant in 1887 who just arrived from an Eastern European country where you couldn’t follow your religion, live where you wanted to live or do the work that you wanted to do.

Birdland Jazz Club

The other evening I was invited by a friend to go to the Birdland Jazz Club which is located at 315 W. 44th Street. So it’s ever since most of Chicago’s top musicians moved to New York in the mid-to-late 1920s that New York City has been the Jazz Mecca. Nearly every major jazz style…

Blank! The Musical
