    Times-Square.

    September 4, 2016 in the United States

    Abends noch um einiges voller als am Tag. Also ich habe bis heute wirklich noch nie auf einer Straße Schlange gestanden um auf einen öffentlichen Platz zu kommen.

    Morgen starten wir mit einer Bootsfahrt zur Statue of Liberty. Aber es stehen auch noch andere Sehenswürdigkeiten auf dem Plan. Dazu morgen entweder zwischendurch oder abends mehr.

    Waitress

    November 29, 2017 in the United States

    I went to see "Waitress" last night on my own. I was so disappointed when "Groundhog Day" was a no go I consoled myself by going online and securing a seat to "Waitress". The boys were happy to sit this one out!

    It was a fabulous show, with great music and performances. I had a great seat in the Orchestra (3rd row, centre), and I sat next to a lovely young man from Aberdeen - Stewart McLeod - who is a singer, and was in NY to sing at a launch party for the whiskey company he works for. He also works at the convention centre as a sound engineer, and recently worked with l’il mix.

    Anyway, back to the show. The cast included Jason Mraz (who was wonderful), Betsy Wolfe as Jenna (who was phenomenal), and a wonderful supporting cast including John Callum, who I recognised from Northern Exposure where he played Hollingsworth Vincoeur, Eric Anderson, who also looked familiar - he has been in The Good Wife, Law & Order, Alias to name a few. Fabulous show - definitely worth seeing.

    East Coast to West Coast

    December 1, 2017 in the United States

    Today is a travel day, and although we gain 3 hours as we head west, most of our day will be checking in and out of hotels, driving to and from airports, and some waiting around! We will do some flying too - about 6.5 hours all up. We got to the airport with plenty of time, as it takes soooo long to get through some of the security checks.

    Once in San Francisco, after checking into our hotel, we just walked up to "House of Nanking" for dinner - same good food with the same brash service. Both Angus and Ian enjoyed dinner. We then did a little walk around the area and back to the hotel.

    It was as we were getting ready for bed that I realised that I had left my Kindle on the plane - not happy Jan 😩. I have lodged a report with Virgin America, and now I wait to see if I can get it back - if not, I will have to do a claim through insurance when we get back. I was so cross with myself last night, but now I have just let it go and hope I get it back.

    Brooklyn Heights Photos

    November 25, 2017 in the United States

    We really enjoyed this part of Brooklyn. We met some friendly locals over lunch who recommended a Pizza and Calzone Restaurant in Cobble Hill, which one of them had been going to since she was a kid. We will try to get there during the week. They also recommended an Italian place on 46th street, which is only a couple of blocks from our apartment. I haven’t put captions on these photos as they were all taken in Brooklyn Heights.Read more

    A Day at the Museum(s)

    November 27, 2017 in the United States

    Today we are again very fortunate to have good weather, so headed off about 9.30, up Central Park West past the famous Dakota Building - where John Lennon lived until his death (he was killed outside the building) - to our first stop, the American Museum of Natural History. Here we spent a couple of hours going through many of the exhibits, including the African mammals, Asian mammals, Dinosaurs, the Primate display, Birds of New York, Wildlife of NewYork, Pacific Island exhibition and American Indian Exhibit.

    We then headed across Central Park to the East Side. In the Park we passed the Delacorte Theatre (where Shakespeare in the Park is performed), Turtle Pond, the Great Lawn, a statue of Hamilton, and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. With all the beautiful autumn leaves, the Park is just spectacular at the moment.

    Once across the Park, we then headed to the Guggenheim Museum where we saw an exhibit on "Art and China after 1989: Theatre of the World". It was a collection of paintings, experimental film and video, installation and performance art - not really my thing, but we gave it a go. We were also fortunate to see the Thannhauser Collection, which included paintings by Cezanne, Picasso, Kandinsky, Monet and more. We also saw the Brancusi collection of sculpture.

    After the Guggenheim we headed to the MET, located close by, and on the way saw some dog walkers that were walking between 8 and 10 dogs. We also met a local lady who was walking her 7 month old French Bulldog called Marlowe, who was very friendly but overwhelmed by the large groups of dogs being walked en masse.

    At the MET we saw the Michelangelo and David Hockney exhibits, as well as the 19th century painters such as Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, Manet, Picasso, Renoir, Cezanne, Gaugin, Matisse and others. It is amazing to see so many wonderful paintings under one roof. We also saw a number of Rodin’s sculptures.

    After that we were a bit over museums and so we started the long walk (36 blocks) back to our apartment, via the Magnolia Bakery, for a well earned cup of tea!

    Tonight we had dinner with the Greens at Cafe Balthazar in SOHO. We had a lovely evening and, after a delicious dinner, we headed off to the Empire State Building to view the city at night. The city lights are great but it was extremely cold out on the observation deck on the 86th level. We said our good-byes to the Greens - who are leaving NY on Wednesday - but we will meet up with them again in San Francisco next Monday.

    We then walked the 10 blocks home past the Lord & Taylor Christmas Windows. We also recorded the highest step count of the holiday (so far) of 28,104steps, which equates to over 20 kilometres - no wonder we are all knackered.

    Photos from Museum of Natural History

    November 28, 2017 in the United States

    So many exhibits to see - we only covered about a third of them! The taxidermy was of an amazingly high standard. Much of the work was done, or overseen, by Carl Akeley. Frank Chapman, a director of the museum, sent teams of taxidermists and artists into the natural habitat to ensure the dioramas were a true reflection and in my opinion this has been achieved.

    The MET

    November 28, 2017 in the United States

    We spent the afternoon at the MET - we saw the Michelangelo and David Hockney exhibits and then just hung out amongst the impressionists. I never tire of looking at a Degas, Van Gogh or Renoir. I have included my favourite paintings in this post.

    9/11 Memorial and Museum

    November 28, 2017 in the United States

    We headed out this morning a little later than usual, as we had had a late night after dinner and the visit to the Empire State Building with the Greens. We headed off to the subway to catch the red line downtown. We spent a couple of hours at the 9/11 Museum, which is very tastefully done. It is a very moving experience, reliving the attacks on the Twin Towers and watching the aftermath, and then reading about the victims and their families. I found the "September 11, 2001 Historical Exhibition" excellent - it was well laid out with a range of media used to retell the story. Some of it brought me to tears. Following the museum, we went to the reflection pool and found a name with a white rose, indicating it would have been their birthday today (we also found a couple with a white rose last year when I visited with my sister).

    Next we went across to the "Eataly" restaurant, and shared a couple of pizzas between us. We then jumped back on the subway and headed over to the Taglialatella Galleries, to look at the Burton Morris exhibition - Painting Playboy - and also looked at art by Andy Warhol, Banksy, Mr Brainwash, Keith Haring and Basquiat. It was a private gallery, and we just walked around and took some snaps - the guy who looked like he was in charge was showing pieces to a wealthy couple, and we were left to our own devices!

    We then walked the ten blocks back to the apartment to get our step total up. Tonight I am off to see "Waitress" on my own, and the boys are having a quite night in.

    Taglialatella Galleries, Chelsea, NY

    November 28, 2017 in the United States

    This afternoon we went to a private gallery that we had seen advertised on the High Line. In addition to an exhibit by Burton Morris - Painting Playboy - the gallery had work by Andy Warhol, Banksy, Mr Brainchild, and many others. The owner/manager was attending to some cashed up clientele, and so we were left to our own devices! Some interesting and iconic pieces on display.

    MoMA, Top of the Rock and so much more!

    November 29, 2017 in the United States

    Today is our last chance to use our NY City Pass, and so we plan to get to a number of things over the day. We started out by heading up to 53rd street, to be there when MOMA opened at 10.30. On the way we noticed barricades being put up along streets from about 48th street and along 5th & 6th Avenue, and a large number of police around - it turns out it was all for the "lighting of the tree" at Rockefeller Plaza.

    The MoMA has an amazing collection and also had some interesting exhibits. We started up on the top level and saw the exhibition "Is Fashion Modern?" This depicted a range of clothes from the little black dress, t-shirts, shoes, boots, head wear, sneakers, turtle neck skivvies, etc. It was very interesting. We also went through the level where all my favourite impressionists are displayed, including Cezanne, Matisse, Van Gogh (The Starry Night & Portrait of Joseph Roulin), Picasso, Monet, Marcel Duchamp and Giorgi Chirico. We then saw some of the more modern works by Jackson Pollock, Rene Magritte, Phillip Gaston, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella and Roy Lichtenstein.

    We also saw an exhibit by Louise Bourgeoise "An Unfolding Portrait". Her work was interesting and at time confronting; she painted until she was well into her 90’s, even though her eyesight was deteriorating. The last exhibition we saw was by Max Ernst - Beyond Painting.

    When we finished our exploration of MoMA we decided to have lunch in their cafe. This was a good move, because it wasn’t crowded and the food was delicious. We all had toasted paninis. After lunch we headed to the Rockefeller Centre to go up to the Observation Deck. It has been a fairly mild and very sunny day, so it was a bit difficult to take shots that faced downtown (into the sun). I think I got a couple of good shots, but the rest have too much glare. Once we had spent enough time on top of the rock, we headed for the subway as we wanted to go downtown to catch the Staten Island Ferry (which is free), get a closer look at Lady Liberty, and also get some shots looking back towards Manhattan and the Financial District. We went past the famous Bull Statue on Wall Street on our way to catch the ferry.

    We got back to our apartment just after 5 pm and had a little downtime before we headed out for dinner at Sardi’s, followed by "Hello Dolly" starring Bette Midler, and also David Hyde Price (he played Nile Crane in Frasier). He was excellent, as was the entire cast, and we had great seats and thoroughly enjoyed the show.
