Ten Things at That I Want To Do In NYC
“New York has a trip-hammer vitality which drives you insane with restlessness if you have no inner stabilizer.’ Henry Miller
From 1892 to 1954, more than 12 million people entered the United States through the Ellis Island Immigration Center. This place was the first point of entry for most immigrants, My Grandparents came through there. Its’ a good time to see and contemplate an era when the United States answered the pleas of refugees for a better a life.
Big museum plans. The Whitney Museum has moved downtown to a cool space in the Meatpacking District. The Metropolitan Museum Of Art is leasing the space for its Modern Art call the Met Breuer. Giacometti is at the Guggenheim and a there is a great photography exhibit at MOMA. Henri Cartier Bresson is at the International Center For Photography.
NY is a city of foodies and chefs. There are so many restaurants to try. I will let you know how I do.
Take a walk through Central Park. It was always our bit of nature in the city.
There is the best shopping in NY. I want to visit my favorite department stores, Bergdorf Goodmans, Barneys and Henri Bendels. I also loved shopping in Nolita, Chelsea and the Lower East Side.
There are so many Street Art Walking Tours to choose from. Painted murals, graffiti, mosaic installations, sculpture, art embedded in the pavement, stencils and stickers are found all over the city.
I grew up seeing Broadway and Off Broadway Theatre in NY several nights a week. We have our tickets and I can’t wait.
How cool is this? Apparently they built Highline Park on an unused elevated subway line on the West Side.
I’m glad to have the opportunity and privilege to finally visit the 9/11 Memorial. 9/11 is not a past event; terrorism and acts of violence continue to be a current part of our everyday life. So, the museum is a visit to a horrible act of the past, but one that continues to persist and be a part of the modern world.
Visiting Lincoln Center and my mom. My mom asked that her ashes be strewn over Lincoln Center so she didn’t miss anything-especially the opera. She said that she wanted us to stop by and visit her and see a show in NY.
