#941: SculptureCenter

I’ve run by the side street where the SculptureCenter is located at least 10 times over the past few years without having any idea it was there.

It might be because the area surrounding it is mostly comprised of construction sites.

#873: Brooklyn Historical Society

If there’s one thing New Yorkers probably regret the most about their time in the city, it’s not taking advantage of all of the cultural opportunities surrounding them.

#819: City Reliquary

I’ve passed by this small storefront countless times on my walk from the G train in Williamsburg, and it always piqued my interest, but I was always on my way to somewhere else so I never stopped by.

I did go to this museum.  I went inside, spent 5 minutes walking uncomfortably through it, and then had to leave.

I get that it’s raising money (I don’t know exactly for what; I’m hoping the 9/11 fund goes to the families of those killed, but I have no idea).  I understand that everyone grieves and deals with tragedy differently, and that for some people, this museum may be a tribute to the lives of those lost, and to the unkillable spirit of the American people.  It may be comforting to some, whether they personally knew someone who died, or were just caught up in the coming-togetherness that the horrible day did undoubtedly inspire in our nation.

#809: American Museum of Natural History

I can’t give a good reason why it’s taken me 9 years to go to this museum.  I can, however, give some flimsy reasons: Read the rest of this entry »

#703: Queens County Farm Museum

City kids in the country–can it get more clichéd than that?  Probably.
