This fourth trimester trip to NYC has its upsides and downsides. On the downside, it's still winter (even if NYC doesn't have a geologic winter) and there's a possibility the winds will be fierce and we'll experience a a blizzard as the city has in recent years. The chances of that are slim, however, and the upsides are no tourists to get in the way, easy travelling, off-season rates, exploration of an area out of its element, and an education and peek into truly out-of-the-box art that relatively few people get to see and experience.
For this trip, we're going to Coney island in the off season, and getting a private tour, led by Sascha Mombartz, of art displays that are difficult to explain. Do note that two of the art installations we'll see do not allow photography. If you sign up for this meetup, you'll be guided and chaperoned while in NYC from noon until 7PM.
