We were extra lucky this week because we have field trips two days in a row! Today, Kathy and the group checked out two exhibits at the New York Public Library (NYPL).
But before I headed back to my lions, I needed to go ice skating first. The NYPL sits right next to Bryant Park so Whitney and I left the hotel extra early so I could get in some rink time.
Whitney and I met up with the group and we ventured into the NYPL. We first checked out "Echos of Silence," a photography exhibit with photos from Philip Trager. All the photos were in black and white and several were of houses. The shadows turned out really well and in my opinion, created the "echoes of silence."
After checking out the photos, we ventured to the Lunch NYC exhibit. This was an exhibit I had been looking forward to. The library used their extensive lunch menu collection and other resources to tell the story of "lunch" in the Big Apple. They showed us how the word "lunch" came into existence and the varieties of lunches available to workers.
I finished off my afternoon with a chai latte at a coffeeshop and some writing. Still have more to do, but that's the weekend project.
Will write more and in more detail this week. Pretty exhausted right now, so I'm headed to bed since I have work tomorrow.
