On the bookshelf was a copy of Ralph Ellison’s “Invisible Man” with an attached post-if saying: “Talk a walk to Riverside Drive and W 150th. There is a tribute to this writer.” So take a walk I did.
The only real plan for the day was to visit MOMA. On the way we passed The Ed Sullivan Theater where The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is taped (do they still use tape?) Slightly odd to see the real version of something that we watch nightly (not that we could get tickets for the actual show, obviously).
Had a coffee next door with it’s related sandwiches: Colbert (Chicken), Letterman (Turkey), etc…and it’s signed photos over the wall.
Finally onto MOMA. To be honest some of the more modern stuff is is moderately irritating, but each to their own. On the top floor it’s nice to see some Mondrian, Van Gogh, Klimt, Monet, Dali and my favourite artist, Hopper.
Did a bit of covert people watching while in the gallery.
