Oct../halloween sights in NYC







While walking around the city today, I spied lots of fun Halloween decorations, plus tons of big pumpkins --I met some art classmates at the Royal Hoticultural center for an art show, and walked up to the Met Museum after. On the way, saw a spooky building -a sure sign of Halloween. At the Met, wandered up to the rooftop where saw jeff Koons sculptures on the roof. I agree with my mother. They are nothing to write home about. But the view from the Met rooftop is spectacular. Then, toured the twentieth century wing and the new British photography exhibit. After walking around 6 miles (West 37th to 90th street, around and back), I treated myself to a big cup of coffe and $1.20 Zaro's bagel (yikes)...October is my favorite month -I want to hike, bike, and see cultural exhibits, paint (unfortunately or fortunately do have some jobs)...and want the same for my kids!! Depressing that the month goes so fast. But November is a good month too. Signs of the NYCM are already popping up in the city!!
