Open House NY

The Tinman and I spent Saturday traipsing around the city, visiting sites on the Open House NY tour. The OHNY maps were hard to read and the Tinman and I hadn’t really planned out in advance what we wanted to see, so we only made it to four locations.

NYC2012 @ One Liberty Plaza: the headquarters for NY’s Olympic Bid. Lots of interesting maps and models. I can’t imagine how much of a logistical nightmare it would be to bring the Olympics here. Just the president visiting the UN for one morning is enough to bring the streets to a halt.

The High Line

The High Line: it’s not open to the public, so we only got to look at it from a neighboring roof.

Mixed Greens: art gallery/office with an incredible wrap-around view of the city. There was a cool exhibit of life-size medicine cabinet photos.

Tenri Cultural Institute of New York: where the Tinman displayed his ability to read Japanese, which inspired us to finish the day with sushi at Japonica.

After embarrassing myself with the chopsticks, the Tinman sent along this tutorial on how to use them.

You certainly didn’t embarrass yourself — you did get them to work somehow. It was cute. 🙂
