Friday night we went to see The Post. I have seen more films in cinemas in 6 months that I did in 6 years in Australia, partly because I no longer see lots of films on long haul and partly because it's an easy excursion for us. I really liked it and had serious house envy in the set design. How cool was it to see the type setting for the print run?
I did run the week 1 day 1 run from C25K on Saturday morning and it was icy again but this time I had adequately prepared and we were fine. I was reading about it does nothing to strengthen you so I am combining with my Up and Running exercises.
We had decided we would go and do something so we chose the Museum of the City of New York which was way up on 103rd St. I insisted we get the bus. We went across town and then took the bus up 5th. The Upper East Side is like High St Kensington used to be, moneyed but not trendy. I saw there was a Graffiti Hall of Fame on 105th so we got off there but it was deeply disappointing. The Museum did not disappoint. Small but packed with lots of interesting and well displayed exhibits on immigration patterns with some specialist exhibitions on ice skating in the city and activism. We really loved the ice skating and the pieces on outdoor art. I was very moved by the work of Mierle Ukeles, a performance artist, who spent a year shaking the hand of every employee in the Sanitation Department and thanking them "for keeping NYC alive"
Apparently the staircase is one of the most instagrammed in NYC? We were on it.
