Day 250: Something Beautiful-Big Scenes of the Big App



Something beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Day 2-The “I Live for Art” Tour A day of stunning images on our first full day of the annual art fest. The World Trade Center was first stop. Beautiful reflections on the reflective buildings surrounding the monument. I had to sit on the ground to get the full Freedom tower and lip of the  south footprint.


The newest members of our entourage were indoctrinated in the idiosyncrasies of the New York subway. Though thousands pass through th mosaic walls of the tunnels every day. I expect few appreciated or studied them as we did.

To the upper east side and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So many pieces. So little time. The group unanimously chose to focus on the modern collections but found the time to experience the Oceania–wonderfully unusual native art of New Guinea.

The view from the rooftop garden was spectacular. An incredible panorama spanning Central Park and the wonderful buildings on Central Park west.

Three of us walked 30 blocks to the south end of the park–rewarded by cocktails at the Plaza. Civilized and a little decadent…civilizzato e un po ‘ decadente.
