Picture Show: Crowdsourcing the World's Greatest Imaginary Neighborhood

Imagining the ideal street

What if all your favorite places from around the world—that taco stand on the Mexican border, that hat store in London, that gallery in New York—were lined up on the same block? We wondered what it might look like, so we asked the folks over at Pictory, a publication that tells stories through community-sourced photos, if they could solicit images on the theme of “Neighborhood Treasure.” We’ve mixed in a few of our own snapshots, and created what we imagine the world’s greatest street might look like.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
