Katy Clark is leaving Brooklyn Academy of Music after five years ‘upon accepting another opportunity’. (Why so coy?)


It just shows there’s life after Brooklyn.

  • Rogerio says:

    Maybe she left because there are Drones Over Brooklyn.

  • Andy C says:

    Communism has halted the arts!

    • V.Lind says:

      What communism? You people are a century out of date. You don’t even understand the difference between socialism, which for some reason you dread, and social democracy, which you more or less have but are the worst exemplar of in the developed world.

      • Couperin says:

        As a lifelong NYer I can only say thank you for this reality check. People have loved screaming about socialism for decades but they’ll sing a different tune as soon as their social security benefits and medicare dry up.

      • MWnyc says:

        What’s more, even the Vietnam and China barely bother to pretend they’re practicing Communism anymore. Totally a bogeyman of the last century.

  • drummerman says:

    I left Brooklyn in 2000. My life has sucked ever since. Must be from not eating Junior’s cheesecake.

  • Larry says:

    Perhaps her new organization has not yet made her appointment public. That’s why.

    • MWnyc says:

      That is almost certainly why.

      • V.Lind says:

        You’re both probably right. My wish is that she was politely saying that it was nobody’s business but her own — but as her next opportunity is probably fairly public, I guess all she is saying is that she will tell you when it suits all concerned.
