MoMA and St. Patrick's Cathedral

Two of the top sights in Manhattan are the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the nearby St. Patrick's Cathedral. We visited these sights on Friday, September 11, 2015, before our temple shift at 3:00 pm. Fortunately, the MoMA allows photography, so we took pictures of our favorite works of art. Here are a few of them:

MoMA Sculpture Garden, with skyscrapers in the background.

The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, one of the most beloved and most viewed paintings in the MoMA. It is one of our all-time favorite works of art.

Beverly poses next to The Starry Night.

The Bather by Paul Cézanne.

Portrait of Joseph Rouilen by Vincent van Gogh.

Evening, Honfleur by Georges-Pierre Seurat. This example of pointillism (painting with little dots) also includes the  frame, which the artist also painted.

Self-Portrait in a Straw Hat by Paul Cézanne.

Pines and Rocks by Paul Cézanne.

The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau.

Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian.

Three Musicians by Pablo Picasso.

Picture with an Anchor by Vasily Kandinsky.

One (Number 31, 1950) by Jackson Pollack

Man with a Guitar, Georges Braque.

I and the Village by Marc Chagall.

The Park by Gustav Klimt.

Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth.

House by the Railroad by Edward Hopper.

Scott poses by Family Group by Henry Moore.

St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Avenue, Manhattan.

Beautiful stained-glass windows of St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Many buildings displayed American flags on this 9/11 of 2015 in commemoration of 9/11 of 2001 and the attack on the World Trade Towers.
 We love the art and architecture of New York City!
