LIC flea & food / Warm Up at PS1 (NY V)

On a Saturday, I ventured off to the LIC (Long Island City) flea and food market in Queens. When I got there I could see the magnificent Manhattan skyline from a distance. 
The market wasn't overwhelmingly big. Just a good number of stands selling food and drinks, and second-hand goods. 

It took me a while do decide what kind of food to try because there was so much choice. In the end I had a vegetable Onomiyaki, a Japanese pancake. It consisted of shredded vegetables made into a patty with light batter. It was very tasty.


I had a last look at the skyline and then I left for the Warm Up party at MoMA PS1, which was on the same street further east.


PS1 is a contemporary art institution located in a former school.


I visited the exhibitions and what I liked most was Static a short film by Steve McQueen (director). It was shot from a helicopter flying around the Statue of Liberty. The film was projected onto a huge screen and it was at times quite loud. Not much happened but for some reason I found it fascinating and I had to tear myself away otherwise I would have watched it a second time.


During summer, on Saturdays, PS1 hosts Warm Up parties with live DJs in the school yard. This is where I got the opportunity to drink my very first ever Pimm's cocktail!


It was definitely an interesting event, the music was good and it was a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon with a cool crowd, which even included parents with their children. I wish we had this in Luxembourg.
