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,

NYC: Nightlife

Lately, I find instead of venturing out on one long trip each year, it’s best to treat myself to regular long weekends. The recuperative power of a mini vacation allows me to feel like I’ve escaped the daily grind. Itineraries are created so, time is focused on what to see and do while on holiday. 

Watching the “Black Lives Matter” protest in Times Square.

Protestors in Times Square- Black Lives Matter.

Loved watching this vendor smoking hot dogs.

Next Escape

As our weekend trip fast approaches, I’m craving some much-needed escapism and cannot wait to bolt. I’ve taken note that excursions require careful planning in order to stay safe. Several kits have been compiled that consist of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, disposable gloves, and face masks. Many states require face coverings when you’re out in public, and I have always been one to wipe down high touch surfaces so, when we get to our hotel will disinfect doorknobs, bathroom sinks and remotes.

I’ve been updating my music playlist for the drive to NYC and want to stream a few movies to my iPhone. I’m a Phryne Fisher fan and love solving her mysteries’ so, will be watching; Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears on Acorn. The film takes place in 1929 Jerusalem, the fashions and scenery are always fabulous. I also want to view a bit of Alfred Hitchcock but cannot make a choice so, will peruse through Amazon Prime.

Here are the travel playlist additions, I am so loving right now, and a few have been out for a while, but are still great to listen to while getting cozy for the road trip this weekend.
