'Dialog in the Dark' - South Street Seaport
Add to Calendar 20-08-2011 31-12-2012 15 'Dialog in the Dark' This exhibit leads visitors through a series of NYC environments highlighted by city-centric scents, sounds, temperatures, and textures, all in complete darkness. Relying on blind and visually-impaired guides, exhibit goers will "see NYC" and visit many well known landmarks without the sense of sight while armed with an authentic walking cane. Imagine taking a rumbling subway to your favorite location or maneuvering the crossroads of the world in Times Square while not being able to see a thing. Rest assured, the sounds and the smells will all be there to greet you. But will that be enough to guide your safe passage? The experience will forever change your perception of what it means to be blind or have low vision. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=90336 South Street Seaport true DD/MM/YYYY

Description: This exhibit leads visitors through a series of NYC environments highlighted by city-centric scents, sounds, temperatures, and textures, all in complete darkness. Relying on blind and visually-impaired guides, exhibit goers will "see NYC" and visit many well known landmarks without the sense of sight while armed with an authentic walking cane. Imagine taking a rumbling subway to your favorite location or maneuvering the crossroads of the world in Times Square while not being able to see a thing. Rest assured, the sounds and the smells will all be there to greet you. But will that be enough to guide your safe passage? The experience will forever change your perception of what it means to be blind or have low vision.

Venue Description: There?s never a dull moment at the South Street Seaport. With shopping, eating, and constant entertainment, the entire family can enjoy the visit. As part of a new proposed redevelopment, the Seaport and Pier 17 will soon reconnect to lower Manhattan, both physically and aesthetically. With the new plan comes more open space for walking and waterfront recreation, open views of the harbor, and new areas for live performances, lectures, and children?s programs. Visit now to discover what's new at the shops at the South Street Seaport. Pop into stores for all occasions, from everyday clothing to designer goods. Sales and deals are beaming. After a day of shopping, visitors can choose from a variety of eateries. Located right on the pier, grab a meal at the Seaport Café, or indulge in Haagen Dazs ice cream. An assortment of entertainment is another appeal at the Seaport. Catch a poetry reading at the Shooting Star Theatre, or visit the South Street Seaport Museum. The museum houses an extensive collection of maritime paintings by some of the most renowned maritime artists, a range of ocean liner memorabilia, as well as over 1,000 ship models. The museum is both an educational and entertaining way to learn about the history behind the South Street Seaport. Visitors can also experience New York from a different point of view by taking the New York Water Taxi to many of the city's top destinations. Too much to do in too little time? There are many hotels located near South Street Seaport, allowing for an elongated trip.
