Emily Jacome-Guggenheim Museum(Tuesday)

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened in 1959.  This location brought new culture to the famous museum mile in NYC through modern and contemporary art.  The museum is presented by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and is just one of the many around the world.  The museums among the foundation are recognized for their stunning architecture. The Guggenheim Museum in NYC has a more subtle architectural appeal compared to the others around the world.  Nevertheless, the building takes you on an art frenzy through a downward spiral, starting from the top and ending at the bottom. The Guggenheim has had  many exhibitions that bring other parts of the world, such as Italy, Africa, and Latin America, to NYC.  The Guggenheim museum is perfect to spend a quiet and thoughtful afternoon.

Thursday – The HighLine Park

Download PDF

I will be visiting the Highline Park as part of my concierge assignment. I think that the High Line Park is very unique and different from a lot of parks in NYC. High Line Park has a great amount of history behind it and most visitors can hint at it with its old railroads. Most people dont really know its full on history, but just its old railroads. This is where the park becomes significantly unique, High Line is a very innovative park. To be able to preserve its history and combine it with the new futuristic architectual designs, is what makes this park a go to. Therefore i will be visiting High Line Park as part of my assignment.

Neil Tsentner St. Patricks Cathedral (Tuesday)

St. Patricks Cathedral has been a staple to New York City since 1879. Amongst its skyscrapers and modern architecture surrounding the beautiful Neo-Gothic style cathedral was designed by an architect named James Renwick Jr. St Patricks Cathedral remains as a gift from the past and is the oldest Roman Catholic parish in New York City. Although the church stands as a well known landmark in the heart of 5th avenue, the church is still fully functional and is visited by thousands of tourists a day and is admired  by everyone. There are plans to preserve St. Patricks  and keep it the way it has been for 137 years. The church holds lots of history and would be a shame  to see it decompose.

Sam Clampman: Coney Island (Tuesday Class)

Coney Island is one of the most historic, scenic and fun places in all of New York City. It is located on the south shore of Brooklyn and is framed by the Atlantic Ocean. There are so many places to see and food to taste at Coney Island. From the world’s famous Nathan’s Restaurant, home of the annual Hot Dog eating contest, to Gargiulo’s old school banquet-hall Italian eatery, Coney Island has something for everyone. Aside from the food choices, you can take in the annual Mermaid Parade down Surf Avenue, watch fireworks from the famous boardwalk during the summer, take in a Brooklyn Cyclones ballgame, or visit the aquarium. If thrills are what you crave, take a ride on the Cyclone (the world’s oldest wooden roller coaster) and the Wonderwheel or spend a fun day at Luna Park. No matter what you do, a day in Coney Island will be a delicious and fun-filled day.
