Christian Finnegan has lived in New York City for nearly twenty-three years. The question is…why?

A mixture of standup and storytelling, THE GORGEOUS MOSAIC is Finnegan’s attempt to figure out what made us all decide to move here and, more importantly, what makes us stay.
THE GORGEOUS MOSAIC: Half love letter, half cry for help.
