New York has become a total winter wonderland. For the first time since we moved, it started snowing in December. I’m secretly loving it. So much so, that last week I went on a museum and Upper East Side stroll. It was freezing cold, and I walked more than 50 blocks south of the island. It started snowing half way down and I had a huge grin.
I started off with the Jewish Museum to see the Modigliani exhibition. Right then, I made my first New Year’s resolution: to go to museums as often as possible. Next, was the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. This one wasn’t on the plan, but as I was walking down Fifth Avenue, I thought it would be a great opportunity to visit it for the first time. It’s free for students, which makes it all the more exciting. I saw it quickly, but the highest floor exhibition was off the charts. Focusing on a Dutch designer Joris Laarman and his multidisciplinary team and the application of digital technologies to mundane objects.
Walking down further, I reached the MET, but that’s for another longer day. I strolled along Central Park, made my way into winter wonderland at the high fashion shopping district. It was overly crowded, freezing cold, but I loved it. Came home so refreshed and just in time to seek refuge of the snow storm that followed. We ended the day at a friend’s birthday party, cozied up in their apartment.
