Anything woodworking related that I should make a point to see while
I'm in New York City? I'll probably hit the MoMA to see some of Sam
Maloof's work, but other than that I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for
any ideas you have.
Lobby was closed, but I could see marquetry on the doors that looked
nice. MoMA was an absolute madhouse so I didn't go in this trip. Not
much ww'ing was seen other than the furniture in Crate & Barrel.

Kinda neat to see once, but it's not the kind of thing I could live in
or around. Too busy/gaudy, ie. Art Deco.
To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen
to what the world tells you you ought to prefer,
is to have kept your soul alive.

If you're into marquetry, try the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art). I wish
I could remember the details (and the Met's web site is useless), but
there's an entire room done in marquetry, brought over from Europe
Second the Met recommendation. They have a ton of furniture from all
periods and styles. One of my favorite all time pieces is there. I
called the Met and the curator was very helpful - sent me all sorts of
information on the piece, pictures, articles and all.
