New York City | December, 2016

Over Christmas, Justin and I popped over from Philadelphia to New York City for a weekend filled wth art museums, Jewish and Chinese eateries, and other wanderings.

Would you believe I’ve never ever been to the Guggenheim before? I finally made a visit thanks to my SFMOMA membership, which includes reciprocal access to the Guggenheim, The Whitney, and tons of other great art museums all around the country.

Next, another first visit for me, to the Oculus! Basically a super fancy-looking shopping mall / transit connector.

Next, we headed over to The Whitney, just in time for golden hour and sunset on their beautiful roof deck.
