Silicon City New York Computer History Exhibit Visit & More

IMG_20160101_134551149

I visited the New York Historical Society museum to check out its Silicon City exhibit that explores the history of computing from New York.  This is a great exhibit that showcases an interesting part of computer history outside of Silicon Valley in California.  If you’re in the New York City area and interested in computers it’s definitely worth checking out for yourself!  You can see some snapshots I took below:

In addition to Silicon City there were other fantastic exhibits at the museum, like a beautiful “Le Tricorne” tapestry from Picasso that was made for a Russian ballet:

Or this triptych that’s almost 700 years old and still looks brand new:

I also went to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum and was really blown away by the beauty of the museum.  It’s built into the foundation of the former World Trade Center towers and has amazing underground architecture with beautiful large caverns.  It’s a very solemn place but absolutely well worth a visit if you’re in the New York City area.
