Today it's snowing again. This has been a very long, cold, dreary winter season - so far - and there's lots of it left to come...
Best thing in the last couple of weeks: hot chocolate at the Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie
where I envied the chic up-do of the young woman in pink
and fantasied about moving in - or at least having some swanky party there.
Then there's the Metropolitan Museum of Art
which is utterly overwhelming, dwarfs one entirely
and is splendid for people watching
and spying on them from above.
Another possibility is to go statue gawping
this is Diana who used to live above Madison Square Park, but is now all newly-gilded at the Met.
This is from the memorial to Theodore Roosevelt outside The Museum of Natural History
I think Miss Snooty is something to do with writing to music
her calmer sister is definitely painting.
the First World War
someone terribly important (and over-gilded)
and chilliest of all a memorial to The Maine.
Got to dash to Macy's - which is at least warm. Will annotate the statues later!
