Brooklyn has a few exciting happenings this week, including Le Grand Fooding New York and the Brooklyn Book Festival, which features talks by world-class authors Paul Auster, Sapphire, and (whoa) Tony Danza. In Manhattan, artist Tatzu Nishi has created an elevated living room for the Christopher Columbus statue atop Columbus Circle, and the Venus Over Manhattan gallery celebrates a late-night opening reception for Peter Coffin. All this and more, on this week's art roundup.
