Hello winter. You are awfully long.

Good thing us NYC kids got some great museums to go to – to take away the winter blas with some color (rather than fly off to somewhere tropical, not always possible!) We spent a dreary gray day at the MoMA and loved the explosion of color. I love seeing all the really young art enthusiasts… my kids are not alone in their love of art, that’s for sure!

Have a great weekend.
This Frantisek Kupka painting should brighten your mood:

Ok a graveyard doesn’t necessarily sound like a gorgeous spring-time outing, but this cemetery was amazing!  Not only are the grounds bursting with new growth and flowers, but there are famous characters buried here such as Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Horace Greeley.  We had to bring Zoe’s friend Hazel along who – at the tender age of 5 – is already VERY ‘into’ scary movies and cemeteries.  I hope to return here for a proper tour on a day that the green trolley buses are moving around giving tours.

And when it’s so cold, we’ve got lots of museum going to do!  Gotta keep it creative to keep the kids occupied (entertained is more like it) while taking in culture.

There was a weekend of revisiting the Met and PS1 shows to keep us from going stir crazy indoors –

At PS 1 Moma we found a room with shimmery streamers to enter : photo 1

and waterfalls projected on glass (Angie Keefer)!

And at the Met Zoe discovered a love of selfies, and proves that sometimes life really does imitate art:

On the A, E and C line at 14th Street in Manhattan one can find these adorable sculptural ‘critters’ all over the platform. Ezra adores them – see more about them by clicking here.

We’ve been so sidetracked by packing and moving and unpacking, we nearly forgot to enjoy the season and the changing leaves. Thankfully Central Park never disappoints, and is only a quick 20 minute subway ride away. I can’t believe the skating rink is already open, and we even spotted our Astoria neighbor Big Bird hanging in the park ..
(By the way that last photo is of our new street and house under some red leaves!)
