A great place to live and work

Day Trip to NYC!

Those of us in Union County have access to some of the most diverse cultural experiences in the world by taking a bus ride into New York City.

If you haven’t been to the American Museum of Natural History in a few years, it might be time to go again! We were there today – it was too hot to stay home – and had a fantastic time touring the 46 permanent exhibits.

Of course we made a trip to the Hayden Planetarium and to the Rose Center. I love the time line from the Big Bang to today and I love the size comparisons of everything from the known universe to the size of a proton.

The meteorite hall is always a favorite, as is the Hall of Human Origins where you can visit casts of the skeletons of Lucy and Turkana Boy.

Everyone’s favorite is always the fourth floor where the dinosaurs are housed. AMNH  has Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, a Brontosaurus, several mammoths and ancient horses, a Triceratops, a Stegosaurs, and thousands others.
