Spring Break!

March 23, 2016

I took Caroline to New York City for spring break. It's her senior year of college, so a trip to the center of the art world was in order.

Caroline's favorite portrait, Madame X, by John Singer Sargent, is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The National September 11 Memorial is a must-see. The museum, inside one of the former towers demolished by terrorists, is one of the most astounding experiences you will ever have. Every American should visit.

This huge new dinosaur skeleton was added to the American Museum of Natural History in January. The Titanosaur is 122 feet long and weighed about 70 tons. This is the closest I could get to it because the exhibit was closed to set up for a private function. (That stinks.)

This is the new Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District with New Jersey in the distance.

Inside the Whitney.

Our final night was at the Metropolitan Opera to see Madama Butterfly.
