It’s been brutal in the city lately, so hot that the Lovin’ Spoonful got it right – back of the neck getting dirt and gritty. No breezes. Scorching sun, but that didn’t stop SoundBeacher from taking her trusty camera out and about Manhattan for us. YAY.

First, Van Gogh’s Ear at Rockefeller Center…totally cool, in every sense of the word.
…artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset will transform the Fifth Avenue entrance to the Channel Gardens at Rockefeller Center with a large-scale new work. Van Gogh’s Ear is a sculpture, which takes the form of a swimming pool sitting upright. Its cyan blue interior, adorned with a polished stainless steel ladder, bright lights, and a diving board, opens up to the public traveling down Fifth Avenue, across from Saks Fifth Avenue. Conceived specifically for this site, where fashion, commerce, tourism, business, and art collide, the work playfully contradicts our expectations of both this familiar object and iconic site.
The Guggenheim….with peeps taking photos of peeps taking photos….
The Met – more peeps
Up on the roof top at the Met is an interesting art installation.. It’s called the PsychoBarn by Cornelia Parker.
More peeps on the roof with a city skyline...
I got to ride the extended No. 7 subway line it’s near where the High Line has been extended and you can finally get to the West Side. I thought it was impressive although I hear it’s got water leak problems, etc.
Then from me, the Lovin’ Spoonful song that was the inspiration for the headline. Keep it cool out there folks. Keep it cool
