Museum of Arts and Design

It’s located by the Columbus Circle.  Barbara Tober, the chairwoman of the Board at Museum of Arts & Design since 1994 (?) seems to be the center of it. The store has many cute stuff. (Her apartment). Reading about her, Tober, reminds me of  Helen Gurley Brown (Cosmopolitan magazine for 32 years who wrote Sex and the Single Girls .. ), even Coco Chanel.

A few rides in and around the park

There are few options to see the park. For the pedicab, it’s $2 per minute per ride. The walls are at the subway. More pix on piwigo, with iPhone 4S.
