Picturesque greetings from New York!

I am currently in New York City on a holiday and I wanted to share some of the things I've seen so far. I will do more posts about art I'll see here but these are some goth-y or pretty things I've seen so far!

These remains of a sticker graffiti are super cute, so sad that we do not know how it continued! Altough I quite like the combination now, with the reading person spray painted through a template.

 Yesterday I visited The Merchant's House Museum. It is a Row House from the 19th century and it is perfectly preserved with all furniture, clothes etc. Victorian aesthetics are close to many a goths heart.

Here is another picture, showing one of the gowns the lady of the house owned.

Enjoy your weekend, I am now off to explore NYC some more!

    1. I am guessing it might have already been a partial, that there was nothing after legs. But you'll never know and it would be wonderful if someone artistic would draw all kinds of possibilities that could have been the actual graffiti! ^^

    1. When were you here? If you have pics from your trip, it would be great if you could do a post about it, like you did about your trip in South Africa! :)

    1. I sure try! :D The weather is changing a lot and in short times, but I hope I can still see some of the beauty of the streets, not just the beauty of art museums!

  5. If you like books and fancy bookshelves, the JP Morgan museum is also cool. If you like medieval art and or gardens, see the cloisters... It is worth the trip.

  7. I was trying to think of a few things I really enjoyed seeing in NY but that was three years ago and I've forgotten. Plus you've probably already left by now anyway! I didn't get to see any of the museums, as the person I was traveling with didn't care to. So if you did, I hope you post about them.

    Hope you had a wonderful time! :)
