What I saw today was, well, too much. Sometimes on Spring or Fall days when the sun is out and the weather is fine, there is just too much activity for me to truly enjoy my surroundings.
Nevertheless, I stuck it out because I had planned visits to two museums on the Fifth Avenue Museum Mile: the Guggeheim, a modern art museum, and the Cooper Hewitt, one of two Smithsonian museums located in New York, and focused on design.
Both are architecturally incredibly interesting. The Guggenheim is famous for being one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last projects and the Cooper Hewitt is located witbin Andrew Carnegie’s Manhattan mansion. The enviroments are polar opposites.
Here are my photos! I’d like to share that I actually got into both museums for free today. Museums in New York are generally expensive, but with some persistence and some planning, deals can be obtained and free days or hours taken advantage of ;).
Thanks for stopping by.
