I love going to the museums in New York. I love to sit on the benches and watch people. Museums are so much better than a bookstore or even a restaurant for that purpose. First of all, you can just enjoy the space – large, open space is difficult to find in the city. Then you can enjoy the art itself, imagine what it was like to live with these objects, because someone did at some point live with what we now call art. And finally, there are the other people in the museum: the tourists, guards, docents, and the natives.
