Well I'm off to Manhattan with my girlfriend for reading week, escaping the clutches of Waterloo, ON. I'll be staying three nights in hotel (hurrah for Hilton/Sheraton points) and the remainder in an NYU dorm on Broome St. The company in the NYU dorm is a friend of mine who is rather fun - she has a glassblowing class, of all things. The first half of the trip is for personal exploration and the like, while in the latter half of the trip the rest of my class from my PLAN 309 design studio arrives for a field trip and I will join them in their daily activities. My instructor has lined up some NY architects and planners for meetings and lunches and whatnot and we'll be having some targeted sightseeing and walks and spontaneous design assignments I suspect.
The great thing about the trip is that my accomodations are free throughout and my rail fare is only $160 CDN (return). I shall eat my savings!
Anyways - this is the standard call for reccomended stops and visits and things of note. If you've any information on presently running exhibits or shows that you think are wonderful, let me know. Thanks everyone! =)
