Fresh Perspectives…
Plus: the skint

.. On The Light
Gorgeous images of New York by French photographer Jean-Michel Berts.

On The Subway
Tour the Atlantic Avenue tunnel on November 15th with Bob Diamond, who rediscovered its existence in 1980. Sloppy of us to lose a tunnel, huh?

On What Might Have Been
Museum of the Phantom City is a splendid public art project by Cheng+Snyder, making ingenious use of the iPhone. Walk the city and see images of projects imagined but never realized, along with notes on what the designers intended. Free, download here. Learn more here.

On The Natural History Museum
You'll get a new perspective – though you certainly won't feel fresh – taking part in one the sleepovers for kids at the Museum of Natural History – a 'nocturnal adventure experience.'

On The Hudson
Cap a fall day with a stroll across the one-time Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, now the pedestrian-only, 212-feet-high Walkway Over the Hudson.

skint - adj. british slang (1930-35)
