A Day Trip To New York City

Although it might be too cold outside for a leisurely stroll through the outdoor sculpture garden at Storm King or other worthy outdoor sculpture gardens, The Metropolitan Museum, MOMA, The Guggenheim and The Museum of Natural History are all worth the trip into NYC- only a few miles from us here in Nyack. They all have their own various and unique charms, attributes and strengths, providing a very easy on the eyes education in both the arts and the natural world, for children and adults alike!

I remember  as a child that I could not wait for the very special weekend day trips into the city to go to the museums and galleries with my parents who would really take the time to linger in front of any piece of art or sculpture at MOMA for as long as I wanted to stay. I also spent hours at the Museum of Natural History inspecting every minute detail with which the panoramas of early Neanderthals, Native Americans etc.. were constructed and composed. I was fascinated by them. And then the Metropolitan, always a joy! And sometimes (usually) the afternoon would end with a wonderful early dinner at Patsy's  or Luchows or maybe a sudden sojourn into Chinatown for a really special treat. I even looked forwards to class trips to the Museums even though those felt rushed and were more like mandatory tutorials and usually ended with a paper bagged lunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches eaten on the bus on the way back to school.

Most of the Libraries in Rockland County have tickets for entry to the major Museums which can be signed out (much like a book) as long as you are a library member in good standing. Of course these  passes must be returned promptly so that other people and other families can enjoy a day trip into the city just like you!

There are always new, exciting  shows going up and old favorites, like dear friends who are always there, to revisit.
