Saturday Street Style: NYC Marathon

Where: New York City

When: Sunday November 3, 2013 (I moved my Saturday post to Sunday this week)

110313 133

I headed to New Jersey this past weekend to visit with my family and to watch my friend Sara run in the NYC marathon. I love New York City. Growing up in northern New Jersey I went into NYC many times for plays and to see the tree at Rockefeller center.

The ING New York City Marathon is the world’s largest marathon; it was called off last year because of the damage from Hurricane Sandy. The runners start in Staten Island and finish in Central Park. The energy in NYC is high on marathon day. Lots of people gather at different points along the course to cheer on the runners I’ve watched the NYC marathon once before in 2008 when my brother ran.

My family and I were able to see my brother around mile 25 so I headed to the same area to cheer on Sara. We were near The Plaza and there were many people lined up. We were able to get fairly close and I used the marathon app to track Sara. My cousin Russell held up my motivational poster and we were able to see Sara cruise by us. She had an impressive finish time of 4:10:22.

My family and I decided to go to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) after we saw Sara. http://www.moma.org/ I had never been before but always wanted to go. My cousin Daniel has a membership to the museum so we were able to visit for five dollars.

MOMA is quite large so we concentrated our visit to a couple of floors. We started at the special exhibit highlighting Dante Ferretti: Design and construction for the cinema. http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1396

Dante Ferretti: Design and Construction for the Cinema examines design practice for film through the lens of Ferretti’s work, which is distinguished by the structural role it plays in the collaborative process of cinema art. As digital technology transforms the way films are staged, replacing the real with the virtual, Ferretti’s work comes at what may be the end of a 100-year-long tradition of full-scale, studio-built environments for films. This exhibition also serves to document this transitioning of cinema practice through its selection and organization of drawings, large-scale installations, and digital projection.

After walking through the Dante Ferretti exhibit we went to the fifth floor where several of my favorite artist’s work is on display.

Before heading back to New Jersey we tried to find a Banksy street art design but it was gone.  Overall I had a great weekend and I enjoyed visiting New Jersey and New York.
