As I’ve gotten older I have become less embarrassed by what I don’t know, what I haven’t read, where I haven’t been. Still, there are some places in New York that I haven’t visited, and I usually keep it to myself. “I got my pride,” as Ralph Kramden once said.
Ellis Island, for starters. Oy. Never been. I’ve also never taken a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. Dude, never been to the Museum of the Moving Image out in Astoria. The shame! But for me, the greatest sin, is that I’ve never been to the Frick Collection. Seeing as how I’m into fine art and all, this is almost unfathomable, not to mention, inexcusable.
Nevermind all that. I’m going to the Frick tomorrow morning with my uncle, who is a painter.
What famous NYC landmarks have you never been to? You know, the ones you feel bad about. C’mon, fess up.
