GRNlive correspondent Julie Walker is going to Frieze in New York City, she says; "it got some bad reviews last year, so what does that mean for 2014.

New York Times: Now in its third year, Frieze New York opens Friday on Randalls Island with more than 190 galleries, and a program including East River rowboat tours, rock concerts and an on-site hotel conceived by the American conceptual artist Allen Ruppersberg. A spinoff of Frieze London, which has pitched its tent in Regent’s Park every October since it was started by Frieze magazine in 2003, the American edition is a big draw for European galleries.
