Tourist Trap 2: Hart & Pritts

Tourist Trap, NYC is a web video series that follows touring poets to some of New York’s top tourist destinations, as well as lesser known bars, reading venues and unheralded back streets. Each episode features one or two poets as they explore the city, discuss their work, how urban landscapes influence their writing, the history or importance of landmark they’ve chosen to visit, as well as any conversations they might deem relevant along the way. Each episode culminates with a short reading at their destination of choice.
