(Part 9) 1935 Trip to New York Scrapbook

Today is a continuation of Mrs. O'Brien's postcards from her Tuesday morning tour of New York and takes us into her early afternoon.

Notes:

U.S. Custom House

Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Besides  ancient and medieval art it pays especial attention to American artists and to early American funiture.

Paramount Bldg.  420 ft. high - 35 stories.  Cost = $14,600,000.

Notes:

Aquarium and Battery Park.

Waldorf Astoria Hotel - World's highest hotel.  47 stories.  Occupies an entire block at Park & Lexington Ave.  49th and 50th Sts.

Journaling:

Stopped at the Aquarium for 30 minutes.  The keepers were feeding the pelicans while we were there.  The one close to us would throw fish in the water and three frisky pelicans would dive and fight for the fish much to the delight of the children.  The Aquarium is similar to the one in Chicago - not quite as nice - all kinds of fish - imaginable.

2:30 p.m. Tuesday

Met Nita at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and heard Carl Wieseman's and Alexander McCurdy's Recitals.  Mr. Wiesman played well but Mr. McCurdy was a knockout.  They encored him again and again.

 

Tomorrow we will pick back up on the rest of Mrs. O'Brien's Tuesday.

Once again, I am grateful to Mrs. O'Brien for taking the time to make a record of her trip.
