The Guggenheim Ceiling, NYC

I love winding up The Guggenheim spirals to the top of the museum. Frank out did himself creating this one. The exhibit we saw, entitled Zero, was truly a “zero” (a survey of the German artists’ group Zero). Not my favorite…it was just plain bizarre, but the building itself is always worth the price of admission.

Street Performer, NYC

We ran in to this street performer near the Brooklyn Bridge. There were three guys together doing different dance moves when we showed up. There was a fairly large crowd and it ended up being a long show (by street standards) where they conned many in the audience to fork over $20 to watch one of the guys jump over five audience members. This fellow here in the pink beanie in particular was very convincing. I could not believe how many people (mostly tourists) parted with a twenty.

Just got back from NYC.

“New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York,
New York”

Thank you Jay-Z for a great song (Empire State of Mind).
