This may be getting a little uninteresting talking about the tourist traps we're visiting, but I don't have much else to say. I haven't been attending any church here and I'm out of my political job now, so this is what you get.
We went to the Guggenheim yesterday. It was a little disappointing compared to the museums to which we have been. The exterior and interior architechture was fantastic, one long spiral to the top. The price was cheap, but we litterally finished in about half an hour and it took fifty minutes just to get there. There were Picasso and Van Gogh paintings, so I really shouldn't be complaining.
Outside, as always in high traffic, tourist areas, there were a bunch of picture/painting and food vendors. I really liked these, they were of the statue of liberty painted on subway maps. "Very Modern" But, being unemployed, money is running low and I already have two other picture/paintings from other vendors. "Money's running out, time to go home."
Today we went to Prospect Park (a free activity for the economically challenged). It's Brooklyn's equivalent to Manhattan's Central Park. We sat and sweated in the (finally unhumid) heat. This is the arch at the entrance to the park. Alex says it was a gift to the City for their service in the Civil War. I don't like laying in the sun where I can't jump in some sort of water, but I'm starting to get really pale in our air-conditioned oasis and the beach is a one to two hour train ride away.
Oh Jeez! I just about forgot to mention we had sixth row seats for Spamalot last Wednesday! We waited in cancelation line for two hours, Alex paid 200 bucks and we got to see Niles sing about needing a Jew to succeed on Broadway!
