Where did you go today?

I went to the the Museum of the City of New York to see Charles Addams's New York.
This is from the website: "Charles Addams’s New York is an exhibition of original artworks by the legendary New Yorker cartoonist that capture Addams's quintessentially idiosyncratic and slyly subversive view of the city, depicting his signature macabre characters, twisted situations, and distorted reimaginings of the cityscape."

I also viewed another exhibit there called Cars, Culture, and the City.
This is from the website: "Even though New York, like many major cities, has a low per capita ownership of automobiles, it has surprisingly played an essential role in creating today's car culture, and the car has helped, in turn, to shape modern New York. Cars, Culture, and the City is the first exhibition to explore New York City’s century-long relationship with the car and marks the 100th anniversary of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA). The exhibition will feature visionary drawings and models; historic photographs, films, and advertisements; and a wealth of car memorabilia to tell this fascinating, yet untold, story."

They were terrific exhibits and I was there for hours!
