All’s Well at the Whitney Biennial

1 Comment

What do you do when you’re in NYC with friends just for fun?  Well, for one thing you go to the Whitney Biennial (which you get to by walking down the High Line…but that’s another story).  The Whitney has become my favorite museum in the city.  The Biennial was interesting, but not really much more interesting than the usual stuff on display at the Whitney.  Of course, the usual stuff is usually great.

The top floor of the Biennial is downright anxiety inducing.

Are we living in a computer simulation?  Don’t ask Dave.

Fortunately, things are brighter in the sunshine.

MoMA Where Did All These People Come From?

The MoMA…can’t live with it, can’t live without it.  So many people.  But so much art.  And the food is great too.

The Mind’s Eye?  Surveillance capitalism?  Who knows.

Romey’s favorite artist, but no dice on seeing her favorite painting this visit

Not my favorite Kandinsky period

My kind of bar! Proletariat Bar, NYC. Superb beer, kind and knowledgeable service, and perfect conversation. DSCF0473DSCF0483DSCF0482DSCF0485DSCF0476

NY is always a blast to visit, but this trip was the most special NY run ever!  We are proud of our #1 son.

It was a super hot day to be in the direct sun at Yankee Stadium.  Fortunately, w all survived.

 

 

A second ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences was held at Radio City the next day.

 

 

Sailing in New York City

Sailing was just what the doctor ordered on a sweltering day in the city (90 degrees in mid May!). Gorgeous and fun. Amy captained the boat under sail as we cruised up the Hudson.

 

Jack took the helm at the top of the ride.

 

 

 

Champagne!

No fun was had!  No fun at all.
