Our week in The Big Apple, Day 3: Museum of Modern Art and Tina Fey!

Posted on Thursday March 10, 2011

Today we hiked 5th Ave, at least 30 blocks, from Mid-town to the MOMA. On the way we shopped a little, checked out the ice-skaters at Rockefeller Center, and even caught a glimpse of Tina Fey (!) during the filming of a 30 Rock episode. We also stopped by Emily’s father’s busy downtown office and visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

At the MOMA, minds were bent in strange ways by the unusual shapes and colors of the abstract impressionists. Everyone was asked to choose a painting to stare at for three minutes, which is actually an extraordinarily long time to take in a piece of art. When we got back to the firehouse later, Tom lead an art class in which we talked about our perceptions at the MOMA and created our own works of art as reaction pieces.

Tomorrow: Brooklyn Bridge and Little Italy!
