It’s the worst part of fall and winter. Once the leaves fall off the trees, the plastic bags caught up in their branches are exposed creating an eyesore that is particularly noticeable in the urban landscape.
Well, come this winter, we may see less of this mess. Soon those bags will cost a nickel in New York City. The NY City Council has voted 28 to 20 to require certain retailers to collect a fee on each carryout bag, paper or plastic.
At Artexpo New York you’ll find more than 400+ innovative exhibiting artists, galleries and publishers from across the globe, showcasing exciting original artwork, prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, giclee, lithographs, glass works and more—all under one roof. So, if you need to fill that big empty spot over the sofa, this is the pace for you!
The event is held at Pier 94, 135,000 square feet of uninterrupted space. Perfect viewing!
