i’m always surprised when i discover something new in new york city that i never knew about– even though i shouldn’t be. i went to the noguchi museum in queens for the first time and loved it. he is now one of my favorite artists. i love the shapes, materials, and textures he worked with. if you go, make sure to also walk through the socrates sculpture park down the block.

  1. So glad you made it up to Queens! We've got a lot to offer…
    If your in the neighborhood again, I highly recommend the Museum of the Moving Image, right next to the Kaufman Astoria movie studios. I've taken people from little kids up to my grandparents, and it's fun for everyone!

  2. what an incredible spot; a truly, serene beauty. I never knew…you thank!

  3. making mental note of this to see, next time i visit new york. it looks beautiful!

  4. we wandered queens the other day. museum of moving image was on the top of our list of things to do…

  5. I'm a long time follower of your blog, but I don't think I've ever commented here. But seeing your photos today made me finally stop to say hello. I recognized the location of your shots immediately – I visited the museum several times when I lived in Astoria, and Socrates was always a stop afterward. There's so much goodness in Queens – I hope you continue to explore more (and post photos so I can live vicariously through you from Portland).

  6. I have followed your blog, but never commented before. But when I saw the first 2 photos here, I immediately knew where they were taken. My daughter lives in Long Island City, and we've visited the Noguchi Museum twice. Such a beautiful and serene place.

  7. YES, isn't that one of the most beautiful places? I really liked the open corner with the birches sticking out (on the corner of the street). And the relaxed feel of inside and outside and the way they flow together. And then there's art as well. Sublime.

  8. Amazing, i guess that is really hard to find something like this in new york in the city where everything is made of concrete, thanks for share.
