When the Grammys returned to New York City for the first time in 15 years, the Big Apple was ready. Before, during and after Music’s Biggest Night at Madison Square Garden, galas, concerts, brunches and other special events popped up in Manhattan (and other boroughs, too), where the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Lorde, Card Bi, Missy Elliot and other multi-generation artists could party and trade notes. Check out all the best photos you missed in Random Notes.
