I though using the murals not only to teach about Dinos but also the history of understanding dinos was a cool idea.

(I hope that student artist got college credit for painting it!)

So apparently I have over 52,000 views to my profile? Any one want to say hi? Maybe explain where you found me?

Some good gallery display comments that I thought were interesting. Ideas in photo descriptions.

This "unfinished" look of the student gallery made it seem really approachable, if I were a student I would feel confident that I could join and really contribute. Also enjoy the nod to citizen science.

Easy to pick up, they had everything i reserved for. In my experience the trucks are clean and new, and run well. This was the first time I drove from NJ to NYC and there were a few words of warning that I didn't get when I picked up, like staying off of parkways. Also since I dropped off at a different location than pick up, I didn't know how to drop off the truck after hours, so I parked in the street. I got a ticket for that, so be careful. I also nearly lost my key! The customer service was really helpful and nice about it, even when I called to cancel the help truck an hour later. Close call though, mind your keys or you'll pay about $200.

Beautiful building in the old commons house of New York. The museum, like the one in DC strives to connect old and new traditions in Native American culture. It no where near as big, but its still a nice collection. I was there most recently for a screening of Star Wars in Navajo. Be prepared to take time to enter- security is tight! Also if you're with kids, check out the education center. They have great educators and a full sized teepee to sit in.

We got a range of goodies from here, some tarts, a brownie, some some oatmeal cookies to share with some friends. The tarts were ok, although the raspberry definitely outshone the apple. The brownie was a little dry and didn't really have anything exciting going on. I wasn't over the moon about the cookies either, but our friend who prefers oatmeal couldn't stop raving about them so I assume they were a hit for people who care about the cookie. If you're in the area, drop by, but don't go out of your way.

Very cool old farmhouse all the way out in Brooklyn. Not just a little bit old, the oldest! It goes back 341 years. Its by tour only, but they have seasonal events in the garden and you can check out the house then as well. A cool look into Brooklyn's history. Only advice- bring your car, its a train and bus ride away, but parking is easy enough in the neighborhood.

It seems silly to review this place, but...yeah, go. Just do it. Why aren't you there yet? One of the best art collections in the world, it literally has anything anyone remotely interested in culture would want to see. Swords? check. Mummies? Check. Inca gold? Check. Not to mention a painting collection that puts some some European collections to shame. It takes days to explore it fully, so just take a day and wander what you think sounds interesting. You can't regret it. Also another PAY AS YOU WISH museum. As in, whatever you want to pay! This museum gets some of the biggest private and city grants in the country, so don't feel bad if you don't want to chip $20 in, they can take it and the desk people don't care!

Sooo much fun! Visited for the their fall harvest festival for the third year in a row. The festival has candied & caramel apples, farm fresh food for lunch and fun activities for kids. They also have live music and a history barn that always cracks me up. My only complaint this year was the orchard wasn't connected to the festival, we had to get back int he car and drive tot he orchard, previous years you could ride a tractor back and forth. Still, its a beautiful part of NJ and only about 90 mins away from NYC.

A lovely park just a short drive from the city. It can get a little noisy on the weekends, but the trials are lovely and easy to access. My mom is part of a hiking club there and its beautiful year round. Be sure to check out nearby Troy, they have a fun fair ground with stuff like a Renn fair and a Haunted Village.
