Henry’s daycare was closed for Veteran’s Day so we got to spend a fall day together including some time at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village where we listened to drumming and Henry got chased by a little girl.
We visited a few art galleries in Chelsea (and the West Village) today. In particular, we wanted to show Henry an exhibit by the sculptor, Nancy Rubins called “Our Friend Fluid Metal” which is made from countless salvaged playground toys.
The other highlight was a show called “Multiple Personalities” by Rob Pruitt at Gavin Brown’s enterprise in the West Village.

We visited the Tribeca Film Festival‘s neighborhood street fair today as well as several playgrounds which allowed Henry to try a variety of activities like trying to catch one very elusive pigeon.

It was unseasonably warm today with the temperature getting up into the 60’s. So we took advantage of the mild weather with a long walk through Hudson Square, Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District this afternoon.
