I have been there a few times. If I wrote what I think about that place, it would get deleted, and I would probably get banished from LJ.

I am from L.I. but, sad to say not much in the city or L.I. on woodworking. Lincoln Center had or is having something on woodworking but I don’t know when. Google and see what comes up. They must think we’re not interested. They would be wrong. SORRY!! Let me know if you find anything.

Metropolitan Museum of Art is one the the TOP MUSEUMS IN THE WORLD- they have an entire wing dedicated to furniture- they feature at time works from Japan, China, Denmark, etc.

Possibly you have heard of the MOMA – Museum of Metroplitan Art, many consider this next to the Louvre the premier Gallery in the Universe! They also have collections to numerous to mention.

Museum of Art and Design is one of the finest museums in the world. Again features works from all over the world.

Just because someone says art or museum, you maybe surprized on what is behind the doors.

These are just a few select places that you can view furniture art and artists from around the world. I am quite certain you will not find any sawdust but you could spend a good deal of time viewing wood art, furniture art, etc.

You can go to SOHO and visit antique dealers that feature furniture from every periord in US History.

Enjoy your stay in one of the finest cities in the world.
