NYC, Part 3: kor-BOOZE-e-yay


With several prominent museums in Manhattan, there’s never a shortage of things to see. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is one of my favorites. As luck would have it, I ran across a Le Corbusier exhibit there—MoMA’s first major exhibition of his work—featuring paintings, sketches, architecture models, writings, and rare interviews.

Just last fall, while visiting Harvard University, I came across the French master’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. Constructed in 1963, its his only building in the United States, and the MoMA exhibit may offer a clue as to why: “Such a small commission,” he bemoaned, “for such a large country.”
