The New York MOMA finally opens its doors in a brand new facility within the heart of Manhattan. I was lucky enough to experience New York City twice this year but was pretty disappointed that I wasn't going to be able to see this new structure. Instead I had to settle for the makeshift home in Queens. I'm glad I went but it was still underwhelming. Fortunately I got to see the traveling exhibit in Houston (on the last day) so I'm not completely broken up about it.
I want to go back to New York simply to go see this new place. I missed the Met and the Guggenheim and I'm thinking that I need a museum oriented trip. Actually, I'll make up any excuse to go back up there. I was completely caught off guard as to how much I was swept away by the energy, diversity and excitement of the Big Apple. It's like a grown up's DisneyWorld, with hobos and druggies instead of Mickey and Donald, a subway instead of Space Mountain, and a bombardment of petty commercialism instead of a bombardment of petty commercialism with a mouse silhouette. A wonderful world indeed.
