Chol HaMoed

"S", "E" and I went to the Museum of the City of New York today. It was small, but a good way to spend a couple of hours. It also reminded me of how much I love New York. I would especially recommend the 25 minute film about the history of New York.

I don't know why I didn't comment on this earlier, but I just remembered I went to the Museum of the city of new York a few years ago and saw the most fabulous exhibit -- I was in, no joke, all my glory ...
It was most of an entire floor devoted to the various artifacts, writing, sketchings, old newspaper clippings, etc of the history of the Croton Aqueduct/Reservoir, detailing its proposal, the diary of one of the engineers, sketches of the day it opened to great fanfare (July 4, 1842), finally giving New York some decent drinking water ... it was awesome! Have you ever read Water for Gotham by Gerard T. Koeppel? Excellent book about New York!
