NYC in Spring: 2018 Part 3

Our second day in NYC was filled with Tiffany glass, delicious cheese, art installations, and magic. We began our morning by going to the NYC Historical Society in the west side, next to the Natural History Museum. I don’t believe I’ve ever been there before but it was worth it. What blew my mind was […]

They were swimming in front of a bar in Noble Square. They showed such grace and beauty for creatures gliding in cement. I was absolutely delighted in finding these koi; it was another piece trying to make Chicago beautiful. These koi were the work of stencil street artist Jeremy Novy. I had the opportunity to […]

Part 3: Spring in Manhattan

The following day began at the Met, one of my favorite museums. It’s got an incredible collection but is rather overwhelming. I try to get into my head that we are only going to visit a few things because seeing the entire museum would be impossible. Our first stop was a Seurat and circus exhibit. […]
