As the saying goes, “You can take her out of New York, but you can’t take New York out of her!” Join Joan as she shares her favorite city in the world and her second home.
In fully-illustrated talks you will see art found in the major museums of the various boroughs, as well as examples of the iconic architecture found throughout the city. Manhattan will be emphasized, and the outer boroughs of Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens will also be admired.
Joan will share with you the serene parks and famous streets and waterfronts as you learn about the contributions of famous New Yorkers past and present. Be inspired by the many aspects of this mecca of energy, diversity, beauty, and culture that’s just plain fun!
