This past weekend I was visiting some friends in New York and we decided to hit up the Brooklyn Museum at the end of our Sunday. Although the visit was a little rushed, I’m really glad I got the chance to check out the space. We did a very speedy run through the permanent collection, as well as a spin through “Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present” (showing through the end of January and the main reason we stopped in). The building design blends old and new within the museum as well as outside, where there is a really peaceful and accomodating public space. Worth a visit. And if you spend an afternoon there, be sure to talk a walk through nearby Prospect Park which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also did Central Park.
