Weekend in NYC

HOPE sculpture on W 53rd Street; Carol Bove sculpture at The Met; Patience and Fortitude the renowned pair of lions at the 42nd Street Public Library and artwork in our hotel lobby at the Andaz on 5th.

Arriving at Penn Station on Thursday afternoon around 1:23 P.M.

This past weekend, as temps began to rise a few of us hopped the Amtrak from DC to NYC to partake in the reopening of the city after a long, challenging winter. We still had to do our part by social distancing, as there were several exhibitions worth masking up for this spring: Goya’s Graphic Imagination” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [through May 2]; “Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life” at MoMA PS1 in Queens [through Sept. 6th], and Frick Madison just re-opened in March and will house the collection and staff during the renovation of its historic buildings on East 70th Street.

Travel safely,

Happy Lunar New Year

Xin Nian Kuai Le

Who is ringing in celebrations this evening for the year of the Ox? I’ve ordered Chinese take-out with potstickers for dinner, we’re welcoming the year by turning to a few traditions, such as serving dumplings. They resemble ancient Chinese money and are eaten for good luck during the Lunar New Year, much like we eat collard greens and black-eyed peas at the start of the year since they resemble cash and coins.

2020 was precarious year at best, we all could use a nudge or a sign that the future holds much hope and happiness for everyone.

Wishing good fortune to all!!!
