Spring is coming, has already been here, is coming again. 60 + degrees on Feb. 21, 14 degrees a month ago, a foot of snow!this has certainly been a strange winter. But I do believe as we approach the mid to end of April, it might get back on track for a fine spring day.
Therefore we have a bus trip to NYC planned for Saturday the 21st of April. We might find cherry blossoms ready to bloom as we journey through Central Park, magnolia petals echoing the Gothic architecture of many churches and tulips dancing in the wind in Washington Square.
For those who are interested in watercolors, the American Watercolor Society’s annual international exhibition will be open (from 1 – 5 PM) at the Salmagundi Club ( 47 Fifth Ave.) during its last days of the exhibit.
There are many great museums and galleries; shopping galore; some may go to a Broadway play: off Broadway play; On this day in NYC, you are welcome to do anything yo’d like. Perhaps you’ve heard of a great restaurant – even in Brooklyn, you’ll have time to do it. And one year we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. Another time we found our way to the Brooklyn Museum. It’s fun to walk through Greenwich Village or Soho.
And don’t forget the new beautiful twin towers in lower Manhattan.
The bus will start the journey in Warwick at 7:30 AM (exit 10A Park and Lock on Rte 117). There will be 1 stop in CT for food and bathroom. In NYC there will be 3 stops going down Fifth Ave from north to south. First stop at the Met (around 82nd St) Met, Guggenheim, Neue Gallery of Austria and German art, Frick, MOMA, etc.
The 2nd stop will be midtown (around 45th St) .St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, great shopping, etc.
The 3rd will be downtown somewhere around Houston St. which separates Greenwich Village from SOHO .Washington Sq. AWS show, Chelsea, Twin Towers, Wall St., Canal St etc.
The bus will pick us up on 42nd Street at Bryant Park near the NYC Library ( midtown) at 6:00 PM sharp for our return trip. We should be back in Warwick ( after a short stop in CT), by about 10 – 10:30 or so.
The cost of this trip will be $55 pp.
