As a tourist now in my old home-town, my mission in NYC was to do everything I liked and could manage -- in 5 days. Along with the Met Museum, my perennial favorite, I spent time at the New Museum in the Bowery and the recently built Met Breuer. Mardsden Hartley was the star show, but I especially enjoyed the wide ranging art-as-social-metaphor of Lygia Pape and the art-is-anything-at-hand of Marisa Merz (large charcoal shown).. A friend also introduced me to a surprising outdoor sculpture park in NJ. For sights and impressions, please
