RICHARD QUEST, BUSINESS TRAVELLER

《商务旅行家》理查德·奎斯特
New York pre-and post-recession is a very different place. People spend money in different ways. They have different priorities. But that doesn't mean to say that if you are a business traveler here, you can't have a good time. You just have to do things differently,and Time Out has some suggestions for doing just that.
纽约在经济衰退前后的模样大不相同,人们的花钱方式已有许多改变,生活中各种事物的优先顺序也不一样了。不过,这可不表示商务旅行人士来到这里无法玩得尽兴,只是玩乐方式要改一下而已。《闲暇》杂志有些建议可以让你如愿。
 
MICHAEL FREIDSON, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, TIME OUT NEW YORK
《纽约闲暇》总编辑迈克尔·弗烈德森
Hi, this is Michael Freidson, editor-in-chief of Time Out New York, and I'm here to show you some good deals [in] post-recession New York. Our first stop is Artisanal, a French bistro on Park Avenue that serves the best grilled cheese. Thirteen dollars may not sound cheap for a grilled cheese sandwich, but it's the best way to enjoy a bite by Michelin star-winning chef Terrence Brennan. He's been offering this meal since the beginning of the year as a recession special and it's one of the most popular entrees.
嗨,我是迈克尔·弗烈德森,《纽约闲暇》的总编辑。我要带各位看看经济衰退之后纽约能找到哪些好去处。我们的第一站是工艺餐厅,这是一家位于公园大道的法式小餐馆,他们的烤奶酷非常好吃。一份烤奶酪三明治要价 13美元,听起来虽然不便宜,却是品尝米其林星级主厨泰伦斯·布雷南手艺的最佳方式。他从今年初开始供应这项经济萧条特餐,是极受欢迎的主菜之一。
 
Broadway has experienced ups and downs since the recession in January. Fifteen shows closed. But this fall there's a whole new Crop of exciting new productions. Shows that deal with nostalgia are packing them in. You've got Hair, the musical from the'60s, you've got Rock of Ages with music from journey and Bon Jovi and you've got jersey Boys.
自从一月的经济衰退以来,百老汇的状况起起伏伏。有15出戏结束演出。不过,今年秋天一口气推出了许多令人兴奋的全新戏码。有着怀旧题材的表演吸引了大批观众,其中有 20世纪 60年代的音乐剧《毛发》、充满了旅行者与邦·乔维合唱团音乐的《摇滚年代》,还有《泽西男孩》。
 
Now I'm going to take you to one of New York's newest hot spots-Governors Island. It's one of the best-kept secrets in the city. This is a former military fort that's since been turned into a public park that's got art galleries, a bar and grill, live music. It sort of adds a little beachiness to what is usually a pretty urban environment.
接着,我要带各位到纽约最新的一个热门景点——总督岛。这里是纽约市最鲜为人知的秘密地点之一,原本是军事据点,后来改成了公园,里头有画廊、酒吧和烧烤餐厅,以及现场演出的音乐。这个景点为此处颇为都会的环境增添了一点海滩气息。
 
The city is not about exclusivity in Time Out's eyes. It's about everyone trying to enjoy the best of what it has to offer.
在《闲暇》杂志眼中,不是只有有钱人才能在纽约怒意享乐,其实只要大家想办法,都能享受到纽约最美好的事物。
