New York Monday #109: Neue Galerie

Okay:  So, it is not Monday.  I know.  ;-)  I’m sorry I’m very behind with my New York Monday post.  Life got in the way of my blogging, unfortunately, but here I am.  Better late than never, right?

This week I got to meet fellow blogger Elizabeth of The House in Marrakesh.  By the way, her blog and that of Maryam’s, My Marrakesh, have been mentioned in the March 2008 issue of National Geographic TravelerMarrakech Destination Guide.  Very exciting!  Congratulations, ladies!

So, we went to the Neue Galerie on Fifth Avenue, a museum that showcases early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design.    At the moment, paintings and drawings by Gustav Klimt are on display.  The museum includes a bookstore, design shop and two Viennese cafés.  Of course, we stopped at the cafe, as we wanted the experience, like the ones we always see on Merisi’s Vienna for Beginners.  I’ll tell you what we ordered in another post.

Continue to have a good week, everyone.  It’s almost Friday!  Yay!

Thanks so much for you note the other day…I’m behind with email ;o) Happy Valentine’s Day, my friend ((HUGS))

  7. Hi, Paz! Beautiful photos, what a nice way to spend the day! And wonderful that you get to meet up with other bloggers. Can’t wait to see what you ordered, mmm. I love the art of Klimt, and Schiele, too.

  8. I’ll have to research that building — how beautiful. Wonder who lived there?

    Hi Rebecca: Welcome! It always a pleasure to meet a fellow blogger.

    Hi Janice: The architects of the NY Public Library completed the building. Socialite Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt III lived there. Later the building was used by YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. In 1994, Ronald Lauder and Serge Sabarsky purchased the building to use as the museum. You can read more info on the link I provided above for the museum.

    Hey there, Tanna! Paris? Cool. ;-)

    Kathleen! Yes! ;-)

    Paz
