Mural on Bowery and Houston by Maya Hayuk



Desparate for travel today. Photos from a trip to Lisbon, Portugal, back in 2010 definitely help the wanderlust blues. 



Every spring/summer, Madison Square Park by the Flatiron Building puts up an installation by different artists. This year, Ivan Navarro’s installation “This Land is Your Land” is one of the best I’ve seen in the last 3 years.

Queens, NY, from the top of the Chrysler Building. There’s no access to the top like in the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock. But a number of businesses like dentists have offices on the crown of the Chrysler Building, so it makes for a great visit every six months.
