Yesterday and Today

Have been quite the whirlwind! On Saturday I visited PS1, an extension of MOMA built in an old school building (all New York City public schools start with “PS” for public school).

After walking through the Mike Kelly exhibit I went to Neue Gallerie to see the Kandinsky exhibit. Afterwards we met my aunt and uncle for dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant, which has been used to film scenes for 30 Rock and Parks and Rec!

After dinner we went to a benefit in honor of national human trafficking awareness day. The benefit was for the charity Free the Slaves, and it was held in my uncle’s church (which was used as a major point in the Underground Railroad).

Today I went on a day trip to upstate New York via an overground train along the Hudson River from Grand Central Station. I went to Via:Beacon, a really beautiful modern art museum.

I’m now finishing my day by catching up on my homework assignments. All this walking around the city is exhausting!
