Moynihan Train Terminal

Penn Station has long been an underground eyesore in midtown. Buried beneath Madison Square Garden it was just, well for lack of a better word... "blech" -- especially compared to Grand Central. Well, no more! The new Moynihan Train Terminal finally opened. Across the street from the garden, behind/under the US Post Office building and it is stunning. 
Light-filled, sleek, spacious - just amazing! The subway entrances and tunnels are still mid-face lift but it is such an upgrade for one of the biggest transit hubs in Manhattan.

Endale Arch

Not far from the entrance into Prospect Park from Grand Army Plaza is the Endale Arch, one of the first architectural structures built in the park 150 years ago. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and designed to blend in as pedestrians made their way to the great meadow.
It was recently restored and it is just gorgeous as it was in the 1860s. Such amazing tones of natural wood, high arches, natural stone, and little alcoves. Such a great gem in another amazing city park.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 18

The Good: 
I hit my 100th ride milestone on the Peloton a few weeks ago and my century club shirt arrived!

The Random:
Now this gives eco-friendly juice box all-new meaning...?

The Fun:
The end result of our April bulletin board. It was so great to see the kids checking out each day's poem as I posted them.

NYBG: Kusama Cosmic Nature

After a year's delay because of COVID, the NYBG was finally able to bring Yayoi Kusama's breathtaking exhibit to the gardens. I had the ability to see one of her infinity rooms in Boston a few years ago and was so excited to see more or her stunning, creative, and larger-than-life works.
Each and every piece was just so fun and amazing. Giant flowers towering over colorful tulips. A flower obliteration room. Polka dot-wrapped trees. Floating silver orbs. A giant tarantula-esque pumpkin. We walked for hours taking in each piece and plan to go back a few times before it leaves in the fall!

Brooklyn Botanic Gardens: More Blooms

More gorgeous spring blooms from the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. There were some amazing blooms I had never seen before. So many textures and colors, too. 
The Shakespeare Garden had some amazing blooms - all plants mentioned in the Bard's works! We are going to get a membership and go even more now (hopefully by train, bc Brooklyn isn't easy to get to by car!)
