We visited the American Museum of Natural History for the first time ( a great way to spend a rainy day, thanks for the tip Barbs!). The dioramas were amazing, I particularly loved the Alaska brown bear above - wow! Look at that heart shaped face.
Last spring when we were in New York a project was underway building a city park with a difference, a park built on a disused elevated train line, called the High Line We returned this week to find it open - it's great, full of local grasses and plants with loads of sympathetically designed seating with an incredible viewing deck overlooking one of the main streets running through the Meat Packing District.
