NYC Day One: Facades, Fields, & More

Greetings from New York City!

Boy, my feet are tired! I’m taking a short break after a long morning of walking around.

I started my day out by going to the New York Historical Society Museum & Library. My main reason for being there was to see the Facades Exhibit, but I walked the whole place while I was there and stuck around for a screening of New York Story ( in the price of admission, and certainly worth going to if you’re visiting the museum). What a stunning place!

The Facades Exhibit:

The Facades exhibit at the New York Historical Society Museum features the works of photographer Bill Cunningham. As per the museum’s description of the exhibit, “In 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City. Scouring the city’s thrift stores, auction houses, and street fairs for vintage clothing, and scouting sites on his bicycle, Cunningham generated a photographic essay entitled Facades, which paired models—in particular his muse, fellow photographer Editta Sherman—in period costumes with historic settings.”

It’s such a fun exhibit to take in! I highly recommend it.

Strawberry Fields Forever…

I got some quality Central Park time in today. It was the perfect day for it! The sun was shining, the birds were out and happy, cyclists, runners, family picnics, etc. It was glorious. Strolled through Strawberry Fields and spotted the great Imagine mosaic. Naturally, it was crowded, and there were loads of street musicians floating around playing Beetles songs.

It’s been a great day in the city, and, as predicted, my little fitbit is thrilled! 

Spring in NYC… is there anything else like it?
