Friday Fun, Art & Fashion in NYC

Welcome to the weekend!! What do you have planned? A little fun? A little fashion? A little artistic endeavor? Well, yesterday was one of those days where those 3 things came together. I took the train into NYC with one of the best companions I know. My 8 year old son.
Just arriving in Grand Central Station is an experience. Did you know GCS is celebrating 100 years? Although the photo below may not be one of my best, I hope my son enjoys looking back on it years from now. See the 100 in the windows behind him?
Next stop….the Modern Museum of Art, aka the MoMA. Warhol, Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet and Munch. From “Starry Nights” to “The Scream”…I got to see what he liked. What he didn’t. Go to a museum with a child and you’ll see it in a different light!
From there, it was time for him to take the lead….and he led us straight to that beacon for children, FAO Schwarz. Dancing on the floor piano from the movie, Big and posing with Batman. Trust me….he had Fun with a capital F!

 My brush with fashion was limited to snapping the Bergdorf Goodman windows, but I knew I had to share them with you. The fashions are quite fab.

He slept on the train home and it was only after we arrived home, that the rain began to fall. Such fortunate timing!

One last NYC piece of goodness for you….check out the “behind the scenes” of yesterday’s Home article in the New York Times. Style mavens, Anne Maxwell Foster & Suysel dePedro Cunningham, of the boutique design firm, Tilton Fenwick, completely transformed Anne’s new home in Brooklyn.

So, be it art, design, fashion or plain ‘ole fun….wishing you a most wonderful weekend!
