NYC - Adios to Graffiti Guy

Don, Fully Flummoxed by Video Art in the MOMA

What was accomplished in New York City this April? We came in via Amtrak early on a Saturday afternoon and left early on a Thursday morning. We made it to The American Folk Art Museum, The MOMA, The Guggenheim, The Metropolitan, the Super Runners Shop (new walking shoes for me), The Center for Book Arts, Strand Book Store, A.I. Friedman Art Supply, Cupcake Cafe, ABC Home and Carpet, Central Park, Borders at Penn Station, and Citarella for a Porcupine Cake. We also made it to dinner with good friends and coffee with a special friend.

Artwork above courtesy of MTA Subway line #1. We also had successful excursions on the #4 Subway line and the M72, M79 and M5 bus lines.

And, believe it or not, Graffiti Guy was still on the street in front of the American Folk Musuem. He's gotten a little worn down in the past year (click here for a comparison) but he's still there!


Tired? You bet, but we still have Washington, DC, ahead of us. No rest for the wicked.

I would have loved to tag along. That's a fantastic signboard with the padlocked heart.
