MoMA:Up in the Sky

This photo, taken while standing outside at the Sculpture Garden at MoMA, shows three distinct structures in the area. The triangle on the left is the Intersection II by Richard Serra and the triangle on the right is the roof of MoMA that extends out into the garden. The building in the middle of the photo is the highrise that abuts the museum.


This is a photo of the skylight on the 6th and top floor of the museum where special exhibitions are usually held. As you see, the MoMA is sandwiched between two highrise buildings. The building on the left is the same building in the first photo above.

I really like this photo though I think I would have been dizzy taking it.
It's certainly a fitting scene for a modern art museum.

Hey, it's a lot bigger than I thought. Even the sky enjoys interacting with the façade. Real good.

Keropokman - Spiderman 3 premiered in the US at the Astoria Multiplex Theater, which is about 15 minutes from my apartment. Supposedly, both the characters, Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson grew up in Astoria, Queens.
