Hi
I'm a student going to New York in a couple of weeks time.
I'm currently compliing a list of 'must sees'.
All suggestions are welcome.

Also my thesis project is a craft workshop for furniture making in the twenty first century - any suggestions for building precedents relating directly to this?

thanks

The Guggenheim is also a must-see. Seek out the new New York Times HQby Renzo Piano if you have the time.

Re: Furniture. I presume you have heard of the Letterfrack Furniture college?

thanks. We have all the obvious sites noted. Looking more for the best kept secrets of New York.

Yeah I know quite a bit about Letterfrack. It isn't really what I'm after.
Looked at Hooke Park, Nord's Sawmills and a bit of Peter Salter too.
I suspose what I am questioning is what is craft in the twenty first century?
