I'm on a train after five days in NYC with the Esthete. My mom is an excellent traveling companion. I was inclined to accompany her to museums and cafés, and a few shops she wanted to see. We checked out Picasso's sculptures at the MoMA, visited the Jaqueline de Ribes exhibit at the Met, and the Underground Fashion exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology. My friend @neilochka joined us for a day at the Museum of Arts and Design.
I'd recommend all these things, but you're especially lucky if Sir Neil comes along, for he is a talented photographer.
