Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace

28 E 20th St,
New York, NY 10003

Wandering is really, a good thing.

With a little time on hand, I wandered into Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site in the city.

TR’s dad stressed one thing to him: do good for others. Do good to others.

On the other hand, get to know TR from Candice Millard’s The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey. Happy reading.

胡思乱想, 漫无目的, 是很重要的. 今天走进老罗斯福的出生地, 感触良多. 不幸的是我小气, 不肯花时间去漫游… 所以井底之蛙一个.

Goethe Institute 歌德学院

30 Irving Place,
New York, NY 10003

My first time in their New York location.

On the ground level is their library. Yes, you can borrow books from it.

Class rooms are on the higher floor. The skylight is nice.

Netflix’s documentary: Our Planet

The promotion of their new docu series at Dolby SoHo @ 477 Broadway is nice. The setup at block deep showroom (Mercer St on the other end) is nice, with a small theater and bar.

The series, is it better made than the National Geographic? emmmm not sure. Netflix’s is made by a British firm.

Missing miles

Walking to the library has been one of my destinations. Out of curiosity I checked the milage this time. Both iPhone and Mac maps indicate 2.4 miles but the heart app Health has 2.2 miles only.

How accurate is the heart app? 0.2 miles out of 2.4 is not too small to wonder.

A cloudy day

A little sunshine @ the beach. Cardboards are down, the summer is coming soon.

Asia Society 亚洲协会

725 Park Avenue
New York, USA

A nice little hub for Asiaphile.

On Fridays, the ground floor host a social networking, with a simply bar and foods. The other end of the lobby is the gift shop.

The drink and food at social is very limited (not a complaint). But the music is inappropriate – tooooo loud to have a conversation. I think light jazz will do.

… the exhibits …
