December 13, 2016

bryant-park-holiday-shops

Bryant Park, located behind the main branch of the New York Public Library, is a great place to visit in the summer for watching movies or people or just relaxing.  But it’s also a great place to visit during the holiday season.

The Winter Village at Bryant Park features an ice skating rink, complete with skate sharpening, skating lessons, and lockers that is open until March 5.  It also features the Holoday Shops, a collection of more than 125 boutique shops offering gift ideas for all.

It’s worth a visit to get in the holiday spirit.  For more info, go to http://www.bryantpark.org/things-to-do/wintervillage.

The Force is Strong in Times Square

August 21, 2016

One of the current exhibitions at Discovery Times Square is “Star Wars and the Power of Costume,” highligting the many costumes from the first six movies (and a bonus peek at costumes of The Force Awakens). It’s a great exhibition, and no true Star Wars fan near New York City should miss it. But hurry; the exhibit is scheduled to close Labor Day! For more info go to http://www.discoverytsx.com/star-wars-exhibition.

Summer Streets 2016

August 12, 2016

Summer Streets 2016

On the next two Saturday mornings (7am to 1pm on tomorrow and next week), Park Avenue will be closed to motor vehicle traffic between the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park. The reason is the annual Summer Streets, which is, according to the event website, provides an opportunity for prople to “play, run, walk, and bike.”

Free activities include music, sounds of the shore, athletic activities, and crafts using small bicycle parts. In addition, there will be 5 rest stops along the route, featuring free activities, performances, and demonstrations:

  • Foley Square at Duane and Centre Streets
  • SoHo at Spring and Lafayette Streets
  • Astor Place at Lafayette
  • Midtown at Park Avenue and 25th Street
  • Uptown at Park Avenue and 51st Street

You can find more details, including videos from past years and the route map shown above, at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/summerstreets/html/home/home.shtml. I’d say it’s a great way to spend a summer morning…

The Psycho House Comes to New York!

August 5, 2016

Psycho House Met

Years ago, I visited Universal Studios with my family. One of the attractions we saw on the Studio Tour was the house on the hill from the movie Psycho; it was actually pretty cool.

If you want to see it now, you don’t have to travel to California, as the house is also located on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue. This one was fabricated from a deconstructed red barn, and will be on display there until the end of October.

Get more info at http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2016/cornelia-parker. Enjoy!
