The Polonsky Exhibition:
Let’s escape our every day and go into the city for some inspirational, mind opening, quirky artistic fun! Hundreds of interesting treasures have been pulled from the New York Library’s expansive and centuries-spanning archive to create “The Polonsky Exhibition”.
Today we’ll browse more than 250 rare and unique items that span 4000 years of history including the only surviving letter from Christopher Columbus announcing his “discovery” of the Americas and the first Gutenberg Bible brought to America. Other fun treasures include the stuffed animals that inspired Winnie the Pooh, Charles Dickens desk, and Malcom X’s briefcase.
Take your time to wander and enjoy!
Off to lunch on your own at the historic Essex Market, now filled with a variety of food vendors. You will be sure to find something delicious here!
Let’s face it, life can be difficult. Yet these difficulties have led humans to ponder the age-old question of the meaning of our existence throughout time. One of NYC’s brand-new immersive art experiences ponders that same question through providing an interactive art journey to explore your true nature and reality. It’s an immersive experience that questions what makes up an experience in the first place!
This interesting, mind opening adventure will take you through several stages that feels like you are entering another world, one that’s quieter, gentler, and indeed joyful. After your unique experience, you’ll emerge with a more connected feeling of tranquility.
