Guggenheim Museum & Agnes Martin

Posted by in Attractions in New York, Exhibitions in New York, Weekend in New York

Cold months are our “museums/galleries season” .. and it’s been long time since we visited Guggenheim museum which itself is such a amazing building (as well as other museums from the Guggenheim Foundation in Venice, Bilbao, and Abu Dhab, see here). Through his daycare, Lukas knows who Pablo Picasso is and we were happy to see some of his paintings (once Lukas painted something funny at home and he said that Picasso made him do it:)) This time Agnes Martin, an American abstract painter had her exhibition.

Thanksgiving Morning in NYC

Posted by in Attractions in New York

It’s Thanksgiving morning! And we don’t have a bird! And most stores are closed or turkey is sold out! The morning we spent running around to find necessities for the dinner and once we got what we needed we went to relieve the stress related to holidays&shopping on the playground! We love playground in Brooklyn by Pier 6 specially in the winter where growing bamboos are green (don’t we all miss green in the winter?) and it’s hidden so it’s not that windy. We had lot’s of fun!

Diverse Beauty Exhibition

Posted by in Attractions in New York, Exhibitions in New York, Weekend in New York

It’s getting colder and colder so we’re switching our weekends from the beach&surfing to the city&art. Lukas is big enough to spend this coming winter in museums and galleries and NYC has so much to offer! It’s not a secret that we’re fans of Alexi Lubomirski, fashion photographer, so once we found out he has an exhibition, we had to see it. The exhibition which actually ended on Nov 13th (but I am sure there will be more to come) was titled ‘Diverse Beauty’ and it celebrates many different types…read more

Freedom Tower

Posted by in Attractions in New York

It’s been a long time since we did any touristy thing ..it’s just not so interesting for the little one so it’s not so enjoyable for us, but this time was really great. We went to see the view from the Freedom Tower! The trick is to buy tickets online in the morning which cuts one big line! It was a jackpot! We didn’t surpass all lines but it was manageable. Freedom Tower! I must say that they a great job with the “anticipation” to see the actual view of…read more

Najlepsze miescje zeby zaczac “nieturystyczna” wycieczke po Nowym Jorku? Washington Square Park! Park ten ma niesamowita i makabryczna historie, ale dzisiaj mozna odpoczac od zgielku miasta i turystow, posluchac muzyki jaka graja uliczni muzycy lub po prostu poprzygladac sie ludziom. Ta czesc Manhattanu pierwotnie byla uznawana jako “wies”, gdzie w holenderskiej spolce mieszkali niewolnicy. Pod koniec XVIII wieku ta czesc miasta zostala zamieniona w masowy grob dla chorych na zolta febre. Ocenia sie ze pod parkiem spoczywa okolo 10-20 tysiecy cial po epidemii (obecie fontanna w centrum parku). Nastepnie park…read more
