Playtime Aplenty!
by CG News Desk - October 21, 2003

Indoor playgrounds would be around even if some weather warlock exercised his atmospheric magic on New York and bestowed it with San Diego-consistent temperatures. There are always indoor people and outdoor people, even in the most unswervingly agreeable climates. Sydney's Playground is one of the city's new indoor hotspots for play, and it doesn't much matter whether you're an indoor or outdoor type to enjoy it: it just looks like fun.

Back on Track
by CG News Desk - October 21, 2003

The New York Transit Museum, housed in a decommissioned subway station in Brooklyn, had no air conditioning or heat when it closed for renovations two years ago. Climate control is still spotty, but the spiffed up museum is much more comfortable now; it even sports a computer resource center, a vast improvement over the olden days of 2001, when the entire museum staff shared just two phone lines. For most visitors old and young, the highlight of the newly renovated museum is the display of vintage subway cars that you can board.

Holders of the Clues
by CG News Desk - October 21, 2003

The American Museum of Natural History's Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites has the drama of science, not Hollywood, but it's not one speck of primordial space dust less dramatic for that. What meteorites tell us about the origins of the Earth, our Sun, and the history of the solar system is a narrative laced up and down the line with the acute drama of nothingness and existence.

Pioneering New Frontiers
by CG News Desk - October 21, 2003

Look closely at almost any building and you should be able to read the mind of its architect. Confidence, overconfidence, arrogance, sense, irrationality, showmanship, apathy — the characteristics inevitably come out in the design. The World Trade Center represented the grand dream that Nelson and David Rockefeller held for the southern tip of Manhattan, and since its loss, arguments have raged over how to replace it with proper deference.

Dahesh Celebrates Its Re-Opening
by CG News Desk - October 21, 2003

Before you announce to the kids you’re on the way to a museum, ask them if they’d like to hear a cool story about dinosaurs or go on a treasure hunt and take home their very own art project. Then subtly mention the location is a brand-new fun gallery with its own children’s space and fun stuff to buy in the shop. When you arrive at the newly opened Dahesh (rhymes with “Marakeesh”) Museum, at 580 Madison Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets, you can then casually drop the word “museum”, and by this point, your kids won’t even care.

Reeling ‘em in!
by CG News Desk - September 21, 2003

There are babies crying at the Loews 34th Street Theater, and the noise isn't coming from the Dolby Sound. Actually, it's not that bad; although the infant-like sounds you'll hear at this Loews are very real, they're also usually under control. It's part of the experience of Reel Moms.
