All the news about what is new or up and coming on the “Cracks In Sidewalks” blog about music, culture, life, NYC, media, television, film, travel, cats and more.

Welcome To The New Cracks In Sidewalks!

We’ve had a major facelift. There is a brand new Gallery for your enjoyment along with an extensive collection of Photo Art Cards. This is my homage to cracks in sidewalks everywhere.

The old “Cracks In Sidewalks,” blog has been archived and is accessible via categories, months and years. Back then, I posted photos of cracks in sidewalks, and used this theme as a metaphor. I wrote about the co-star rather than star, little gems, beauty found in unexpected places; and I applied it to music, art, film, travel, etc. I have left it for you, to be sifted through like an old buried treasure chest.

Every photo on this site is special to me. The “Featured Photo,” I chose this month is titled “Torso.” You will find an Art Card of this photo in the store. In the meantime I hope you enjoy the beauty I’ve found in very unexpected places, cracks in sidewalks.

Best regards,

Audrey Berger Welz


To all my Cracks In Sidewalks Readers,

I will not be able to post for approximately one month.  I apologize for the lack of posts this past month, but there have been other pressing matters that will continue for a short time longer.

I look forward to resuming my blog soon.  I can’t wait to post lots of new photos and write new articles and reviews.

Thank you for you support,


More Cracks In Sidewalks Coming Soon

I need to apologize for not writing.  You are on my mind daily, but the twists and turns of life have gotten in the way these past several weeks.  Below are the few events and subjects I hope to share with you soon besides a new “My Cats Tail” photo and some new “Daily Cracks In Sidewalks” photo’s.

I went to a fabulous screening of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.”  After the screening Spike Jonz interviewed David Fincher the director.  The movie is great and I highly recommend it!

I also went to the Neil Young, Wilco, Everest concert at Madison Square Garden this past week.  It was really special and a great show.  It started at 8pm and Neil didn’t get off the stage until 12:30am.

Tonight is the “Bev Leslies” at The Bubble Lounge in TriBeCa in NYC.  The band comprises some of the best studio musicians in the city including singer Elaine Caswell (has played with about everyone), singer keyboard player Bette Sussman (Bette Midler’s arranger), Shawn Pelton (drummer for SNL), and a host of other great players.  So expect some reports soon.

In the meantime I hope you are all well and I wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season!

Warm regards,
