Jeepers creepers I love this city. People say New Yorkers are rude and abrasive, but I am running around with the cool kids. Still hitting up all the museums, above is from a trip to MoMA. I can’t find it in my heart to appreciate modern art. With my limited scope of the artists, schools and history behind the work, I can at least appreciate the beauty of classic artwork. But modern?

There are 1001 other museum guides out there, so there is no need to write my personal and uneducated views on the artwork here. Here are a few resources I’ve made use of…
