MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 17 – 23, 2015! (PART 1)
My intern’s last week with us at the Getty, and my end of summer trip to New York City, baabbbyyyyy!! This post is mostly about New York, I’ve tried to include links to places wherever possible in case you want to check out any of these museums or food items! *I’m still tired from this trip* *It’s humid in New York* *Okay*
(This is part 1)
Real puffy eyes to start off the week. This weekend we’re headed of to a mini-trip to New York, and I can’t focus on anything else!
My co-worker left these at my house, I’m holding these hostage.
Monday evening class, yeah.
Walking the pups after class and there’s suddenly a stove on our street…*free stove guys*
My hair is already growing out *cries*, considering dying the ends a coral color.
Tuesday night, Zach, James, and I head to the Hollywood Bowl
Seat stacker, mad skills
The LA philharmonic played the score of 2001: A Space Odyssey, I’d never seen it before was an interesting first time viewing
Fancy Hollywood Bowl bathroom
Instagram of the evening
Attempting to illustrate an evening scene
Halfway through, looking for a really true black black that can stand as the mountain silhouette
It’s my intern’s last week, and I picked up a bunch of paletas for her intern celebration party
“Why do you only wear grey?” Good question.
I made her a little stats sheet, she was truly awesome!
BEAUTIFUL! (Clockwise from the top –> pineapple, mango con chili, mamey, coconut milk, coffee, and in the center, strawberry!
The card my intern gave me, we are on the same page.
Good evening, class.
Thursday morning at like 4:00 am…we’re catching a flight that leaves at 6:00 so we had to get to the airport by 5:00.
Flight to New York dirty mirror outfit
Tweedy knew something was up
Prepare for cloud porn
Where is thiiiiis!
Here’s some of the Mississippi River!
Tiny puffs of clouds!
Pokemon and pretzels
Getting ready to land!
The view of the Hudson River from Greenwich
We really wanted to get to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, but they closed at 6. There was over an hour of traffic to get from JFK Airport to where we were staying. So we decided to walk, explore the Highline, and then head over to Brooklyn (since the museum closed at 10!)
A view of the side of the New Whitney!
The Highline is a converted elevated railway that once was used by trains that connected parts of Manhattan North to South. It opened to the public as a park in 2014!
A little map of the Highline, you can see this stretch is a little over a mile.
Views of the city along the Highline
We knew we’d be eating a bit later, so we grabbed one chicken taco to share
“An open one!” Like that scene in Broad city…yaaaah
Humidity not good for my bangs
Area to watch the street, BECAUSE REAL LIFE IS A MOVIE
Giant collaborative lego sculpture
We made it over to where we thought the Brooklyn Museum was…but turns out it was a google map glitch and we ended up in this area called Industry City.
There was this beautiful little biergarten with bocce ball courts and corn hole courts. We had a beer, played some corn hole…it was a delightful little side adventure
Finally made it to the actual Brooklyn Museum!
Arcade installation built by Bast for FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds
Installation by FAILE, a recreation of a Portugese temple ruin with updated graphical and pop culture icons on the sides
Native American displays featured these tiny little seals
Storage that is kept in a public-facing part of the museum, people can actually use these objects for study, but it’s also a way to show a behind-the-scenes look into museum functions. Coool!
Kara Walker resin/sugar sculpture of a “African Boy Attendant Curio (Bananas)”
Judy Chicago’s DINNER PARTY!!!! IRL!
Basquiat paintings, a nod to art historical sources
Went for some late night wine and pasta, that felt very New York. It’s at a little place called Malatesta Trattoria, it’s cash only, and look at their no-frills website. You know it’s good. Try the mussels too.
Found this pinball place where you pay by the hour
If only they had SVU pinball
Totally different vibe than the glitzy expensive barcades in Los Angeles. Just a place to nerd out about pinball.
It was forecasted to thunderstorm all weekend, but this evening was the first and only rainy time.
Beautiful day the next morning!
Little coffee shop with the fanciest avocado toast I’ve ever seen
Important socks at the Strand Bookstore
18 miles of books! We were only meant to pop in, but an hour later…we had to tear ourselves away
Got a corn cookie from Milkbar!
Walking along the park to see all the museum sights
A visit to the Cooper Hewitt! (Design museum of the Smithsonian) Was eager to try out their new pen technology. On one side you can draw and design and interact with the touch tables, and on the other you can touch the pen to a wall label and “collect” objects to a personalized gallery online.
I loved that you could search the collection by drawing a shape. Here’s what it pulled up when my name was written
Objects grouped by color!
Create your own wallpaper and project it room, I tried to make the famous portland airport carpet (PDX Carpet) with the limited colors
More sights in the museum
Even outside the museum had a well designed tile pattern
Having a New York hotdog on the steps of the Met Museum! Couldn’t be happier.
Egyptian collection is HUGE. Well, every collecting area of the Met is giant. I was totally overwhelmed.
The original Faceless
Temple of Dendur
Details on the Temple
King Henry VIII’s biiiig armor made for him while he was very overweight and crippled with gout.
Model of a Frank Lloyd Wright house (yeah the Met is so big they can fit temples and houses inside of their museum)
Rooftop of the Met where you can get a $14 drink
Pierre Huyghe intervention up here
Zach makin’ a dog jealous
IS THAT BALTO
Zach and his little brother
I feel like this tunnel was used in SVU
Big apple, baby
PorK buns and wings at Ippudo!
Look at that ramen. Holy cow. That broth. Holy cow.
Went to see Fun Home (which I sobbed basically all the way through). SO TERRIFIC. Based on the personal graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.
Zach being a nerd
Grabbing a drink at the Rusty Knot after the musical. All their drinks come with little mermaids
My one critique of NYC is the lack of spicy chip options. Where are all the hot cheetos? They only carry regular hot cheeto crunchy…*sad*
PART 2 HERE.
