We braved last night’s snowstorm to visit the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. This tiny tower (25′ wide, 81′ deep, 24 stories) hosts ambitious programs (over 200 a year!), a lending library and amazing views.
Our guide, Marietta, kindly took us up to the open-air loggia on the top floor, which looks down over St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the street canyon below. The great thing about New York is its many hidden vantage points, and there is a small thrill to seeing the city from this perspective.
After a quick tour, we joined the jam-packed opening for ACF’s new—and weather-appropriate—exhibit, Alpine Desire. Spanning centuries and media, it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area.
