NYC, Summer’s Playground

 

Summer seems like a good time for a university building to get a facelift. And that’s just what the Goodman Resource Center is having done! You’re looking at the wall of our building that faces 7th Avenue. It’s covered in scaffolding so the college can do necessary work to our facade. I’m sure we’ll be all shiny and new for incoming students in the fall, though.

In the meantime, there are lots of cool things to do in New York City over the summer, starting with tonight is the first of summer’s 2 Manhattanhenges. Tonight’s your chance to get an amazing pic of the sunset through city buildings!

Other fun stuff to do this summer includes the Staten Island Ferry ride past the Statue of Liberty, the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, museum visits (air conditioning!), movies in parks all over town, Mermaid Parade, Shakespeare in Central Park, concerts all over town, and so on.
