As teenagers on the South London Scene in the 1970s, childhood friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook formed Squeeze, the pioneering UK band that saw them dubbed “The New Lennon and McCartney.” Championed early on by the Velvet Underground’s John Cale, who produced their debut EP, Packet Of Three, Squeeze established their position as one of Britain’s most beloved bands with 1979’s Cool For Cats, setting off a career that would span decades and produce hits in the UK and abroad.
Bryant Park is a 9.6 acre privately managed public park located in the Manhattan, which is also the location of the New York Public Library. The park is located exactly over the underground structure that contains the library’s stacks, built in the 1980s when the park was closed and excavated. The Porch in the southwest corner of Manhattan’s Bryant Park, offers visitors a new place to relax and recharge. Equipped with Adirondack chairs, sofas, and couches, The Porch gives all of New York an al fresco lounge that is open every day and offers specialty snacks and drinks in addition to power outlets for your laptop, iPod, or cell phone for a different type of refueling. It has become a landmark stage for countless arts and cultural performances, enriching the surrounding community. Photography courtesy of Allison Murphy for Artists Den Entertainment
