A great way to learn about other cultures--whether in history or in another community or nation--is to look at the art they value. Recently I took a day trip to New York City, just a couple of hours away from my PA home by train. 

"The City" or "The Big Apple," as NYC is sometimes called, is a living piece of art itself. The skyscrapers are superlative.

 

 

 
The colors and lights are vivid and bright.
 
 
Fashion abounds, as do people. Prices for lunch may be as high as the skyscrapers, but there’s no place like it.
 
NYC is home to numerous art museums--the Guggenheim, the Neue Galerie, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the “Met”),
 
 
 
the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
 
 
and many more. You could spend a year wandering the art museums and still have more to see.
 
 
Just a few of the gems at Met are found in the galleries of European paintings.
